Riverview Attendance Area Redesignation

ATTENDANCE AREA REDESIGNATION

The Grand Isle, Stillwater and White Birch neighbourhoods in Riverview will be redesignated for Kindergarten to Grade 6 for the 2018–19 school year.

REASONS FOR THE CHANGE

  • The Grand Isle, Stillwater and White Birch areas will be undergoing major development, beginning in spring 2018.
  • The redesignation will create much-needed space at Michael A. Kostek School, which is facing enrolment pressure. Michael A. Kostek School will not be able to accommodate students from these neighbourhoods as development progresses.
  • Our five-year projection data shows that enrolment at Michael A. Kostek will continue to increase steadily. The District has already added the maximum amount of portables at the school, and we aren’t able to add any more because of how the school site is laid out.
  • Ormsby School currently has room to accommodate elementary school students from these neighbourhoods; students would continue to be designated to S. Bruce Smith School for junior high.

TIMELINES

The change will be in effect for the 2018-19 school year.

CHOOSING TO REMAIN AT YOUR CURRENT SCHOOL

Once a student enrols at a school, they can continue to attend that school. This means students attending Michael A. Kostek School can choose to stay, if they wish. Siblings of these students would also be able to attend, as long as the student and their sibling attend the school at the same time. 

YELLOW BUS SERVICE

Michael A. Kostek School will no longer be the designated school for the Grand Isle, Stillwater and White Birch neighbourhoods. Only eligible students who attend their designated school receive yellow bus service.

PRE-ENROLMENT FOR THE 2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR 

Parents of students attending a District school can pre-enrol in SchoolZone between March 12 and April 16, 2018. If your child is entering Grades 1-6, sign in to your parent account to select either Michael A. Kostek School or Ormsby School as your preferred school, depending on where you choose to send your child.

Students are guaranteed entry to their designated school if they register (new students) or pre-enrol (current students) no later than April 16, 2018.
