Schools hold early registration day Aug. 29; first day of classes Sept. 3

July 02, 2019

Saskatoon Public Schools is welcoming new students and families back to school with an early registration day set for Thursday, Aug. 29, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at all of our schools.

The morning allows students and families who are new to the school division, or who are transferring from another SPS school, to take a tour, ask questions and register. Families of students who were registered at their school during the previous school year do not need to attend early registration day.

Collegiate offices will be open during the summer. Interested families can call collegiates to book an appointment for a visit or can attend during Early Registration Day on Aug. 29.

The first day for elementary school students is Tuesday, Sept. 3. The morning welcome bell will ring at the usual time for each school. Students will attend school for the morning only and will be dismissed at each school's usual noon-hour dismissal time. The morning allows schools to register new students, welcome students and families and determine enrollment and classroom assignments.

The first full day of school for students in Grade 1-8 is Wednesday, Sept. 4. Kindergarten students will have a staggered start to allow them to become comfortable with the school and their classmates. Information on the kindergarten start schedule at individual schools is available from the school office.

Offices at all of the division's elementary schools are closed for the summer but will reopen during the last week of August.

School supply lists for the 2019-20 school year are posted on each school website, usually under the About Our School menu or on the Registration Information page.

High school students in Grade 9-12 will attend classes for the full day on Sept. 3. Offices at all Saskatoon Public Schools collegiates are open during the summer months. For information and summer office hours check with each collegiate.

A full list of the division's elementary and high schools, along with school contact information and website addresses, is available at
