See below in document list. For parents of children in Kindergarten or Grade one. Please fill out and return to your campus if you want to allow your child to disembark with an older sibling or a person other than a parent.

MOVING? 

If your family is moving to a home that is outside the boundary of your child's current campus, your child may remain at that campus but you will be responsible for transporting your child to and from school. Bussing is not available outside the designated campus boundaries. If you require transportation, you will need to apply for an internal transfer to the campus designated for your new address. The deadline is March 1, 2022 to be considered for the 2022/23 year. The transfer requests are done through the Online Waitlist system. Internal transfer Requests will precede most waitlist students (including priority status and siblings). If the requested campus is unable to accommodate your student, he/she will still have a guaranteed seat at the current campus. Please see the following link for the instructions to request a transfer.

Please note:

  • transfers do not occur mid-year
  • transfers can only occur if a seat becomes available in the requested campus (possible wait of up to 6 years)
  • we may not be able to accommodate all children in the same family
