My child currently attends Kindergarten in HSD. Do I need to register for Grade 1?

No. Children currently enrolled in HSD Kindergarten classes are not required to register for Grade 1.

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?

Please send email to info@hsd.ca or visit the school nearest your residence.
