    Registration for the 2020-21 School Year

    Lottery process at Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour School

    Dr, Margaret-Ann Armour School has closed boundaries and will implement a lottery process for new students for the 2020-21 school year. This process will only impact new students who wish to enrol at our school; it will not impact students who currently attend our school.

    What does this mean for my child?

    Each grade will have a cap for the number of classes and students for that grade level. If the number of new students who want to enrol at a particular grade exceeds available spaces, a lottery process will be used.

    Students who aren’t able to attend our school will be able to attend an overflow designated school, McKee School for Kindergarten to Grade 6 and Vernon Barford School for Grades 7 to 9. They may also attend a school of choice with space in planned classes or remain at their current school (if the grade is offered).

    What about siblings of students currently attending our school?

    As long as both siblings will be attending our school for 2020-2021 and both have registered and/or pre-enrolled by April 15:

    • a new sibling registering in Kindergarten will be guaranteed a space.
    • a new sibling registering or pre-enrolling in Grades 1-9 will be given priority but is not guaranteed a space (new siblings may have to take part in the lottery process). 

    Where can I get more information?

    More information about the lottery process is available on the Edmonton Public Schools website. If you have any other questions, please contact our school office at margaretannarmour@epsb.ca or 587-489-4704.

     

    Kindergarten Registration - Begins Monday, February 3, 2020

    Children who are five years old on or before December 31, 2020 may register in Kindergarten for the 2020-21 school year. If your child will be six years old on September 1, 2020, they must start Grade 1 even if they have not attended Kindergarten.

    Completed Registration Forms must be accompanied by at least three documents that confirm your address is in Ambleside or Glenridding Heights. The Glenridding Ravine neighbourhood is designated to George H. Luck School (K-6) and Riverbend School (7-9).

    We will only accept 'complete' registration packages which include legal verification of name and DOB and proof of address (see registration form for details).

    Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour School will not accept registrations from new families moving into the attendance area if the student is not considered a resident of Edmonton Public Schools. A student is considered a ‘resident student’ if at least one parent or guardian lives in Edmonton and at least one parent is not Roman Catholic. New non-resident students in the school’s attendance area can attend a school in their resident school division or another Edmonton Public school that has space. 

    If your child has special education needs and requires specialized supports and services, please contact Celia Kim, Assistant Principal for Kindergarten to Grade 2.
