Do you have a child who will start kindergarten in September 2022? Welcome!
Registration for regular kindergarten and the district’s two programs of choice opens at 9 a.m. today and remains open for the rest of the school year. We are looking forward to welcoming you and your child to North Okanagan School District No. 83!
You will need to register at your child’s catchment school (based on your physical address) or specialty school (Bastion – Early French Immersion or South Canoe – Outdoor Learning). To access our catchment school locator tool or find out more information about our specialty schools, Click Here.
All Kindergarten registrations completed on Tuesday, October 12th are treated as “equal”, so there is no need for line-ups on that day. Registrations received after October 12th, will be date/time stamped and treated on a first come, first served basis. This information will be used to determine placement IF catchment area schools or programs are full. Students with siblings already registered in a Program of Choice (French Immersion or Outdoor Learning) will be given priority if there is limited space.
Online registration will be available to families starting Tuesday, October 19. The link for online registration will be on the SD83 and school websites as of this date.
If you have any questions about the Kindergarten registration process, please contact: Jennifer Findlay, District Principal, at firstname.lastname@example.org
