Families who need to register their child(ren) for school are welcome to do so over the summer break. If you register over the summer, you will be contacted after staff return to the school on August 24, 2020. See more information on this page about registering new students using our online form.
Prospective parents or guardians of Afton School students’
Afton School will again have open boundaries for the 2020-21 school year. Students already attending Afton are welcome back for 2020-21 and we continue to accept all students who reside in the school’s designated attendance area. For the 2020-21 school year, we will be accepting some students outside of our designated attendance area and we will be carefully managing vacant spaces to monitor enrolment at our school.
Parents are welcome to submit a registration package or pre-enroll for the Arts Core Program for any grade. Please be advised that based on the current enrolment of students who will be returning to the Afton in September 2020, our school does not expect to be able to accommodate additional students from outside the attendance area in kindergarten, grade 1, 2, and 6. We anticipate having space in grades 3, 4, and 5.
For further information or clarification, please contact Murray Smith, principal of Afton School by telephone at (780)484-3263 or by email at email@example.com.
NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION
If you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you will need to complete the process below.
Because schools remain closed to students and visitors due to COVID-19, new student registrations will now be submitted online. If your child is new to the Division, you must complete our school’s online registration form, fill out and upload the Student Registration form and submit supporting documents before your child(ren) can be registered for the upcoming school year.
Our school will no longer accept printed registrations. Do not drop off student registration forms at the school.
Submitting a registration package after the deadline of April 15, 2020 may limit your options to schools with available space. Learn more about registration dates and deadlines.
