Each spring, parents across the Division pre-enrol to tell us the school they’d like their child to attend next year. Pre-enrolment helps families plan and allows schools to prepare based on the number of students expected to attend in the fall.

If you move into the attendance area of a lottery school after 4 p.m. on March 22, 2024, and the school is full in the grade your child is entering, your child can go to the overflow designated school or another school with space. You can ask to be added to the lottery school’s callback list until the end of September.
If you are applying after the deadline, or for immediate entry, contact your designated school for help.
