Elementary 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 elementary 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.

Collegiates are open for early registration beginning Aug. 21 when counsellors and administrators are in the office. New students in Grade 9-12 or students who have not yet registered for fall classes should phone the school to book an appointment. The first full day of school for high school students is Tuesday, Sept. 3.

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.

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