2018 Kindergarten / French Immersion Registration

on September 28, 2017

Do you have a child who will be starting kindergarten in September 2018? Welcome!

We just wanted to make everyone aware that the kindergarten registration date, typically held in April of each year, is being moved forward and is being held in October instead. This year registration for kindergarten September 2018 will be on October 2, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at elementary schools throughout the district. Please bring your child’s birth certificate, care card and proof of residency.

Not sure which school your child will attend? Contact SD83 Operations Department: 250-832-9415

Why has the date been moved up?

• more equitable registration (no need for line-ups, all Oct. 2 registrations considered equal)
• allows the school district to have additional time for planning

What if I register my child after October 2/17?

After October 2 the time and date of registration will be recorded and that will be used to determine placement IF catchment area schools are full.

French Immersion Registration

If you are interested in registering your child for early French Immersion (Kindergarten & Grade 1) please FIRST register your child at your catchment area school and then SECOND call or go to Bastion Elementary to pre-register for French Immersion, where you will receive an information package.

An Early French Immersion information session, and possible registration depending on numbers, will be held on November 30 at Bastion Elementary at 7 p.m.
For those interested in late French Immersion (Grade 6) an information meeting, again with possible registration depending on numbers, will be held on March 6 at 7 p.m. at Shuswap Middle School.
