OPEN ATTENDANCE AREA BOUNDARY

Joey Moss School is a Level 1 school on the Growth Control Model and will have an open attendance area. This means:

  • resident students in the secondary attendance area would get first priority to fill available spaces in planned classes once all resident students from the primary attendance area are enrolled
  • students living outside the attendance area can attend if there’s space once resident students from the primary and secondary attendance areas are enrolled
  • if demand exceeds available space, students from outside the attendance area will be enrolled through random selection

GETTING TO SCHOOL

FOR STUDENTS IN K-6

Yellow bus service will not be provided to Joey Moss School, as all resident students living in the primary attendance area live within the walk boundary.

FOR STUDENTS IN GRADES 8 AND 9 ATTENDING S. BRUCE SMITH SCHOOL

Students from Keswick attending Grade 8 and 9 at S. Bruce Smith School will still receive yellow bus service, as it will still be their designated school until Joey Moss School offers Grades 8 and 9.


CHOOSING TO REMAIN AT YOUR CURRENT SCHOOL

Students in K–6 who choose to stay at Ormsby School next year can still attend. However, yellow bus service will not be provided. Families will need to make their own plans to get students to and from school, because students would no longer be attending their designated school.


HOW WE MADE THE DECISION

We used feedback we heard through our online survey. We made decisions that:

  • allow as many resident students as possible to attend a school close to home
  • ensure the school has room for resident students as the community grows
  • can allow students from outside the primary attendance area to attend through random selection, if the school has space

REGISTRATION AND PRE-ENROLMENT 

New students to Edmonton Public Schools will be able to register from February 1 to April 14, 2022. Current Edmonton Public Schools students can pre-enrol between March 8 and April 14, 2022.

SCHOOL NAME

The new school in Keswick will be named after Joey Moss. Joey Moss captured the hearts of Edmontonians for decades. He became a household name for the Edmonton Oilers and the Edmonton Eskimos (now the Edmonton Elks), working as a dressing room attendant for both organizations since the 1980s. Players and fans alike looked up to Joey for his passion, positive attitude and incredible work ethic. He taught many people about acceptance and inclusivity through his work and community involvement with both organizations.

The Board of Trustees approved this school name and provided an update on the renaming of Dan Knott and Oliver schools, at a public board meeting on June 22, 2021.
