Registration for JK/SK Children – January 21 – February 1, 2019

To find out which school your child will attend, visit http://www.rcdsb.on.ca/en/parents/registration-and-transfers.asp

There are two ways to register your child for kindergarten.

Online Registration

Use our online system anytime to register your child starting JK/SK September 2019 by visiting http://www.rcdsb.on.ca/en/parents/registration-and-transfers.asp.   Please be sure to complete the School Based Extended Day Program Family Survey that is at the end of the online registration if you are interested in a licensed child care program.  You will receive a confirmation email after submitting your online registration.

In Person

Visit the school for a registration package between 9:30 a.m and 3:00 p.m. on Monday, January 21 to Friday, February 1, 2019.  If you are interested in a licensed child care before and after program, complete the School Based Extended Day Program Family Survey online at https://goo.gl/yJg6rA.

Both registration methods require you to bring the following documents to your school. If you have questions about the registration process, contact the elementary school nearest you.

Required Documentation (bring to the school):

  • Completed, signed and dated registration form (access the form online, complete it and bring it to schooll

  • Proof of address (Utility bill or proof of ownership/ tenancy)

  • Proof of student’s birth date (birth certificate, passport, birth registration, citizenship card or statement of live birth)

Voluntary Early Years Experiences Data Collection

Included in the registration process will be an additional voluntary survey through which the Ministry collects information from families about the experiences of children in child care and early years programs in Ontario. This information will help the government understand how families access programs and services in their communities and better define how the early years experiences influence children's outcomes.

Extended Day Program for Children between Ages of 3 - 12

The Renfrew County District School Board  and your school may be offering a School Based Extended Day Program for students (from JK up to age 12) starting September 2019.  This School Based Extended Day Program will operate within the school by an Early Childhood Educator before and after school and is meant to complement the regular day program.

The School Based Extended Day Program is contingent on enrolment and is funded from parent fees.  Subsidies may be available from the County of Renfrew http://www.countyofrenfrew.on.ca/_documents/childcare/FeeSubsidyApplicationForm.pdf.

WHEN BUSES ARE CANCELLED and your child is a walker who plans on not attending school for the day, we ask you phone the school.  Parents are not required to call when students are busers. 

A Mesage from Bob White, General Manager of the Renfrew County Joint Transportation Committee:

A Reminder to Families with Kindergarten Students:

We all share in the duty to ensure the safety of our students.  We would like to remind parents/guardians that you are responsible for the safety and conduct of your child(ren) at the bus stop prior to boarding the bus and in the afternoon following the drop-off.  In the case of a Kindergarten student afternoon drop off, a trusted responsible person (e.g. parent/guardian/babysitter) must be waiting at the bus stop to receive your child(ren). If no one meets the child(ren) at the bus stop, drivers are directed to take the child(ren) back to school. Repetitive failure to receive Kindergarten student(s) at the bus stop may result in the removal of transportation privileges.

We thank you for your commitment to student safety.
