Registration for Kindergarten and Other Programs for 2017/18 School Year

*** Important information for School District No. 71 (Comox Valley) Families ***

School District No. 71 (Comox Valley) will be enrolling kindergarten students (Neighbourhood, French Immersion, Montessori, Aboriginal, Fine Arts and eClasses) in district schools for attendance in September 2017. To be eligible for enrolment in September 2017, a student must turn five (5) years of age by December 31, 2017. Each child's birth certificate and proof of address must be presented at time of registration. CareCards will not be accepted as proof of birth but need to be presented at time of registration. A Passport or Landed Immigrant authorization are suitable forms of documentation in lieu of birth certificates.

 

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION:

All of our kindergarten classes are full-day programs. Parents are asked to register their children at their current neighbourhood school on February 20, 21 and 22, 2017 between the hours of 8:30 am and 12:00 pm.  While most, if not all, students living in a school's local catchment will be accommodated at that school, they cannot be guaranteed placement in the catchment area school and may be required to go to the nearest school having space available.  To determine your neighbourhood catchment school, please visit our district website at www.sd71.bc.ca, click on "Schools" and go to "School Locator".  If you live in an area where busing is provided, and if you have not already done so, please complete at your school a Bus Transportation Registration Form or by downloading the form from our website. All students travelling on School District No. 71 school buses must carry a bus pass.
