Here’s an important tip for parents of kids entering school in September 2013 – be sure to do it before Dec. 21st!

As long as a child is registered for a school before this date, he or she cannot be denied a placement in the school. However, if a child registers AFTER Dec 21 (even if they move into a house across the street from the school), the North Vancouver School District can redirect them to another school that has more open spaces.

Here are some other quick facts for new scholars:

A parent/guardian can register their child for kindergarten if, on or before
December 31st of that school year that child will have reached the age of five years. For example, for the 2013-2014 school year, the student must turn five prior to December 31, 2013.
