Within this application time period, you are able to return to this site and make changes to your information. As of 12:00 pm on October 16, 2017, you will not be able to add or change applications, however you will be able to view your information. This process applies to the first year entry of all of the above programs (Kindergarten or Grade 6 for Late Immersion). Families are allowed to apply for a maximum of 2 Programs of Choice only.
If your child has a sibling already in the same program, it is important that you indicate this in your application and you will need to provide the sibling’s 9 digit P.E.N. (Personal Education Number). This is the number on your child’s report card. If you are unsure of this number, please contact Mrs. Laycock at the office.
By November 15, 2017, all families will receive an email indicating if your child has been accepted into a program of choice. Families will have 7 days to electronically accept or reject an offered seat. After that time, unclaimed seats will be offered to waitlisted applicants. (Please ensure that your computer settings do not block School District 35 emails, so that you receive messages from the School District.)
