    Registration Information

If you register over the summer, you will be contacted after staff return to school on August 24, 2020. See more information on this page about registering new students using our online form (below).

    NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION

If your child is new to the Division, you must complete our school’s online registration form, fill out and upload the Student Registration form and submit supporting documents before your child(ren) can be registered for the upcoming school year (all necessary links below).

    Our school will no longer accept printed registrations. Do not drop off student registration forms at the school. Please email your completed registration package to rosslyn@epsb.ca.

    Submitting a registration package after the deadline of April 15, 2020 may limit your options to schools with available space.  Learn more about registration dates and deadlines.

    Learn more about schools that have implemented a lottery process, and how it might impact new student registration.
