Parents - Notices & Information

School Opening

We welcome back students in September each school year.   Please refer to our school calendar for current year dates and times.


Students in grades 1-5 attend for part of the morning on the first day and will report to their teacher from the previous year.  New students that have already registered in grades 1-5 should report to the office the first day.  Regular classes resume for these students on the second day of school.

Even though it a short time school is in session on the first day, it is important that all students attend to confirm their registration.


New Kindergarten students will have a gradual entry program to start their school year.


Important – please note!

New registrations cannot be accepted until after 10:00 a.m. on the first day of school.  Please review our registration information page or call the school to obtain a list of required documents before visiting the school to register.
