Kindergarten registrations begin next week at the school you wish your child to attend.
Children may begin kindergarten, which will be an all-day program next school year, in September of the calendar year in which they turn five years old. Registration for English and French Immersion kindergarten for the 2011/2012 school year will be held during the week of Feb. 21-25.
Students can register later, however students must be registered by Feb. 28 in order to be guaranteed a space in their neighbourhood school. To register your child, drop by your local school during school hours. Please bring your child’s birth certificate and proof of residency when registering.
The Campbell River School District encourages students to attend the school that serves the area in which they live, however, families who want to register their child in a school other than their neighbourhood school can complete a cross boundary transfer request but must do so by March 1. If the cross boundary request is approved, the student can stay at that school until the student advances to middle school or high school.
Parents wishing to enrol their child in French Immersion kindergarten should contact their nearest French Immersion school. There will be a public information meeting for French Immersion on Wed., Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. at the School Board Office.
