Today (Wednesday, June 10), the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District is reopening the online registration process for Kinderstart 2020-21/Kindergarten 2021-22. Registration will remain open throughout the summer, until August 31, 2020.
This action is being taken as fewer families than expected took advantage of the annual registration process held last month, likely because of circumstances surrounding the ongoing public health emergency.
Families whose child will turn 5 years old on or before December 31, 2021 are encouraged to avail of this opportunity to register, if they have not already done so.
Meanwhile, during a typical year, families would confirm their addresses in-person at their zoned school to complete the registration process. However, given the current public health emergency, all families will be contacted by their registered school in the fall (September/October) to make arrangements to verify registration information (e.g., address, MCP number). Confirmation of placement in Early French Immersion will also occur at that time.
Complete registration information is available on the District’s website or directly at: https://www.nlesd.ca/families/kindergartenregistration.jsp
The District continues to encourage safety throughout the summer and urges communities to follow the latest advice from public health authorities.
