All new students must register by September 3 to be enrolled in their neighbourhood school (provided the appropriate program, space and resources are available). This includes students entering kindergarten or public school for the first time and students who have moved from another school district or to a new school catchment area.
If the neighbourhood catchment school is not able to accommodate the student, or the student registered late, the student will be placed on the school's waitlist and will be required to attend a nearby school.
To register, parents/guardians are required to provide the child's birth certificate, Care Card, and proof of the parent/guardian's BC residency (i.e. - hydro or telephone bills).
