ALERT: Instruction moves to distance and online learning. School phone lines and emails remain open for communication with families.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Thelma Chalifoux School proposed attendance area meeting last year and shared feedback through our online survey. Your feedback was considered throughout the decision-making process.
The following neighbourhoods are in the attendance area for Thelma Chalifoux School, effective for the 2020-21 school year:
Thelma Chalifoux School will have an open attendance area boundary. Students living outside the attendance area can enrol if there’s space. If demand exceeds available space, students from outside the attendance area will be enrolled through random selection.
Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) is the preferred transportation method for junior high students. However, if ETS does not meet Division standards, eligible students attending their designated school may be able to apply for yellow bus service.
Students can stay at their current junior high school if they wish. However, if yellow bus service is currently being provided, families would need to make their own plans to get students to school, as they would no longer be attending their designated school.
We used feedback we heard at the proposed attendance area meeting last year and through our online survey. We also tried to make decisions that:
New students to Edmonton Public Schools will be able to register from February 3 – April 15, 2020. Current Edmonton Public Schools students can pre-enrol between March 9 – April 15, 2020. Students who register or pre-enrol by April 15 are guaranteed to attend their designated school.
