Kindergarten Registration for 2015-2016
Register for Kindergarten
Do you know a child who will start Kindergarten in fall 2015? Registration for the 2015-2016 school year is underway. Children are eligible to enrol in Kindergarten for the upcoming school year if they will be five years old on or before December 31, 2015. The Student Registration Form can be printed off, completed and brought into the school office with a copy of the child's birth certificate to register your child for 2015-2016 School Year.
Check out the Elk Island Public Schools division website at www.eips.ca/kindergarten for information about Kindergarten programs, registration details, and division information. The 2015-2016 Kindergarten guide, Kindergarten, It’s Only the Beginning, is also available online and in free magazine racks throughout the community. On this website we provide specific details about our Kindergarten program.
Register today and join us for our Kindergarten Information Night in May 21, 2015 at 7 pm to meet the staff and take a school tour. If you have any questions or would like to have a school tour prior to the information night, contact us at 780-662-2478.
Kindergarten Bussing FAQ
When do I need to register my child for bus service for the fall?
You can contact Student Transportation following the Spring Break to register.
Is noon time busing available?
In urban Sherwood Park noon service is available although ride times can range from 30-90 minutes in length depending on enrollment and the pick-up or drop-off location. In Fort Saskatchewan noon bus service is only available to and from daycares. Day home service is not available at noon. A fee for all noon busing is applicable.
Is there a transfer for the noon busing? What happens at the transfer and where is it?
There is a small transfer for urban Sherwood Park noon busing behind the Sherwood Park Mall.
Students board a bus at their pick-up location and may be required to board another bus that will transport them to their designated drop off location. There is a Safety Monitor at this site assisting students in locating their assigned bus.

If you have any questions about bussing please call EIPS Student Transportation at 780 417 8151. This is especially important if you have an inquiry early in the day. Our office does not officially open until 8:30; Student Transportation has operators on the phone lines starting at 7:00AM.
Please note if your child is not going to ride the bus, there is no need to contract Student Transportation. The bus will arrive at its scheduled time and if the student(s) are not on the bus, the bus shall just carry on. Should your children not be riding for a significant amount of time (ie. Vacation, Medical Issues) it may be helpful to send your driver’s a note.
