What is the age eligibility for Kindergarten Registration
Children must be 5 years of age on or before December 31, 2019.
My child currently attends Kindergarten in HSD. Do I need to register them for Grade 1?
No. Children currently enrolled in HSD Kindergarten classes, do not need to be registered again for Grade 1.
May I complete the online registration anytime after Jan. 7, 2019?
Parents/Guardians are encouraged to register their children as soon as possible upon the opening of registration, or by mid-February at the latest. Registering early will assist schools in preparation and planning for the upcoming school year. Early registration also provides parents/guardians with the opportunity to participate in upcoming 2019-20 orientation activities.
Can I register in-person at the school, or call to register?
We encourage all applicants to register online as this is the most efficient means to collect the necessary information. If you do not have access to the Internet, please visit the school nearest your place of residence for assistance (after Jan. 7, 2019). Staff will assist you in completing the registration form on a school computer
Which catchment school should I select on the registration form?
Students are required to attend the school within the catchment area in which they reside. Click to View Catchment Area Maps. If unsure of your designated catchment school, proceed with online registration and select “unsure” in the respective drop-down box provided on the registration form. School officials will confirm your child’s designated school based upon address documentation.
I will be moving to the Hanover area, can I register for the catchment school where I intend to live?
Yes, but you must provide proof of purchase or rental agreement that verifies address of residence.
May I choose to send my child to an HSD school outside our designated residence catchment area?
The Schools of Choice initiative facilitates parental/student choice, within limits, in selecting the public school best suited to the student’s learning requirements. If planning to make application for School of Choice, first proceed with online registration based upon current residence catchment – then follow instructions on how to apply for School of Choice. School of Choice Applications have a provincially-mandated deadline of May 15.
If I have additional questions, who can i ask?
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be happy to assist you.
