Are you new to School District No. 83? Welcome!
New student registration will take place on Tuesday, September 1st from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at all district schools and, just in case you were wondering, COVID-19 protocols will be in place!
Not sure which school your child will attend? Please click here for an online school locator program where you can enter your address and it will tell you your child’s neighbourhood school.
If you prefer, or if, by chance, this locator tool does not work for you, please call our staff at the Operations Department at (250) 832-9415 and they can tell you what your child’s catchment area school will be, and, if your address is serviced by a school bus! If you know that your child(ren) will be taking a school bus please ensure you call the Operations Department at (250) 832-9415 and register them. That way you will be contacted with pick up and drop off locations and times.
Can’t make it to the school during new student registration time? Please give the school a call and make other arrangements! A complete list of schools and telephone numbers is available on our website (www.sd83.bc.ca). Go to About Us and then Our Schools.
