Important Information About Registration
To meet the anticipated growth of the vibrant Stonebridge community, enrolment in Chief Whitecap School will be limited to families who reside in Stonebridge, the Willows and Whitecap Dakota First Nation.
Chief Whitecap School is expected to open with a robust student enrolment, and projections by the school division show that the student population is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. In order to properly plan for future growth, the school division is limiting enrolment to families that live in the three designated communities.
Students in Grade 5-8 from the Whitecap Dakota First Nation currently attend several schools in Saskatoon as part of the First Nation's education agreement with Saskatoon Public Schools. Beginning in the fall, Chief Whitecap School will become the home school for these students.
Saskatoon Public Schools' elementary schools offer Kindergarten to Grade 8 for students 5 years of age to 13 years of age.
Registering for Kindergarten
Registration for Kindergarten begins in January for the next school year. Children must be 5 years old by January 31 of the school year in which they begin Kindergarten. For example, to start Kindergarten in September 2017, your child must be five years old by January 31, 2018.
Registering for all other grades
Students can register at any time during the school year (September to June). When you enroll your child/children, you must provide the school principal with documentation that verifies their age. One of the following documents may be used:
- Certificate of Birth
- Baptismal Certificate
- Status Card
For children who have moved from another school, it's a good idea for them to bring along any documents from their last school (i.e., report cards) that will help our staff get to know your children better.
Some families, whose first language is not English, may need help with English as a Second/Additional Language (ESL/EAL). Staff at our Newcomer Student Centre will recommend support and programming for students needing EAL services. If your child is not a Canadian citizen, you will need to register through the Newcomer Student Centre. In addition, students who are new to Saskatoon Public Schools, and who do not speak English as their first language, should visit our Newcomer Student Centre located at 310 21st Street East in down town Saskatoon. Call 683-8400 for an appointment.
The individual school principal is responsible for the decision on the admission of students to schools.
