If your child has any medical issues that we need to know about or requires medication at school, please fill out the attached forms and have your doctor sign the forms prior to your child starting kindergarten
What if I want to apply to a school in a different neighbourhood catchment?
If you are interested in having your child attend a school that is not your catchment school, you will need to apply through a AP 336-3 In-District Non-Catchment Request. Applications will be received by the requested school beginning February 1, 2024. Kindergarten out-of-catchment applications will be reviewed AFTER the first week of school in September. Out-of-catchment applications will only be considered once all catchment students have been accommodated. An application does not guarantee acceptance. You will still need to formally register at your neighbourhood catchment school.
If you have any questions, please call 604-856-6079 or refer to the School District website for more information
