SD52 Kindergarten Registration for 2018-19 School year to take place February 1st to 16th

Parents of children ready to make the jump to their Kindergarten year have a two week opportunity coming up to register their young ones for the 2018-19 School year.

Kindergarten Registration commences on Thursday, February 1st and will continue through to the 16h at area elementary schools. The hours for registration are 9AM to Noon and 1 to 3 PM each weekday.

For parents/guardians living in Port Edward, the registration opportunities take place from 9 AM to 11:30 on Tuesday's and Thursday's only.

The eligibility requirement for registration for September 2018, is that your child be five years old by December 31, 2018.

When you register, you are asked to bring your Child's birth certificate, or other proof of age such as a Permanent Residence card, Provincial ID card or Passport.

Parents/Guardians should also bring their Child's BC Care Card, Immunization Records and Proof of residence.

Parents and Guardians have the option to defer their child's entry to school board, based on readiness for one year. If you have questions about that process or wish to discuss your child's readiness for Kindergarten you can contact the school in your neighbourhood for a consultation.

Students who are not registered during the February registration period are not guaranteed a placement at their neighbourhood school.

The School District's French Immersion program is hosted by École Roosevelt Park School, the bilingual program is open to all children throughout the Prince Rupert School District. The use of the French language at home is not a pre-requisite for the program and the School District notes that most parents of French Immersion students do not typically speak French themselves.

Children entering Kindergarten of Grade 1 may register for the program at École Roosevelt Park on Summit Avenue, you can contact the school at 250-624-6126.


For those families that may wish to request a change in schools for their child or children, they must first register at the school in their catchment area. Once they have done that they can submit a Cross Boundary request form, which are available at all schools, parents/guardians should submit that form to the school in their catchment area.

All Cross boundary requests for September 2018 must be submitted in February, the School District advises that any requests received after February 28th will not be considered  until September 2018.

Parents or Guardians with any questions about the registration process in place for all registrations should contact their neighbourhood school for more information, or direction.

More resources for parents about registration for school, supply lists and other notes can be found from the Parents section of the School District 52 website
