    IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT REGISTERING AT DR. MARGARET-ANN ARMOUR SCHOOL

    Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour School has closed boundaries and there is a cap on the number of students enrolled at each grade level

    We will have a lottery process in place for the 2021-22 school year. This means that if the number of students who wish to enrol in a specific grade exceeds available space, a lottery process will be used. The process only impacts new students who wish to attend our school. It does not impact students who currently attend our school.

    The lottery process will be used to enrol new students for 2021-22 in the following order:

    - resident students who live in the attendance area and have a sibling at the school who is returning next year
    - resident students who live in the attendance area
    - resident students who live outside the attendance area and have a sibling at the school who is returning next year

    PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT EXPECT TO HAVE SPACE FOR ANY NEW STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES 1-9 FOR THE 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR.

    Families may request that their child/ren be placed on a callback list for spaces that open at Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour School before September 30. Students must be enrolled at a Division school for the 2021-22 school year to be placed on the callback list. 


    Students not able to attend Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour School

    We will help all families who have children not able to attend Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour School register at their overflow designated school. Siblings will be guaranteed a space at the overflow designated school (if the grade is offered).

    OVERFLOW DESIGNATED SCHOOLS

    McKee School for Kindergarten to Grade 6. Yellow bus service is available. Bus fees will apply.

    Vernon Barford School for Grades 7 to 9. ETS is the preferred transportation method. If ETS does not meet Division standards, students may be able to apply for yellow bus service. Bus fees will apply.

    Students may also attend a school of choice with space or remain at their current school (if the grade is offered). Yellow bus service is not available (except for some alternative programs). If families would like to go to another Division school, they will need to call or email their preferred school to see if there is space.  If families choose to go to another school with space, siblings are not guaranteed a space.
