Please ensure that all documents included with your child’s registration are legible. Incomplete information and documents will delay the registration process.

Your catchment area school will process your child’s registration as soon as possible. Once your child has been accepted at their catchment area school, office staff will follow up with parents regarding additional information that is needed. Parents should be aware that students may be required to attend a school outside of their usual attendance area if class enrolments exceed 20.

Parents/Guardians of Early French Immersion applicants will be notified by Tuesday, February 9, 2021 if they have been accepted into the program, and what school they should register for. If your child has been placed on a waitlist, please register for your catchment area school to ensure a placement.

If a parent wishes for a child to attend a school other than their catchment area school, an online non-catchment application form must be completed. Non-catchment applications will be accepted online only commencing February 1, 2021 at 8:30 a.m. Applications received prior to March 5, 2021 will receive priority in their respective category. Approvals will be processed as soon as possible, but may be held until the second week of September, therefore, parents should register their child for their catchment area school to ensure a placement. Schools will hold non-catchment forms until approved by the Assistant Superintendents’ Office.
