Children are assigned to schools in the order in which pre-registration forms are received.
When we have processed all the pre-registration forms, we will tell you which school your child has been assigned to. Should your child not be assigned to the school you selected, we will contact you to discuss further options.
Once your child has been assigned to a school, the school will ask you to show a birth certificate or other proof of age for your child, and you will fill out some additional forms.
If you live more than 3.2 kilometres from your child’s assigned school, you can register for a school bus. Children who attend schools outside their attendance areas at their family’s request are not entitled to school bus transportation.
Parents whose children live more than 3.2 km from the nearest school bus stop may be eligible for a transportation subsidy to offset driving costs.
