2023–24 Division calendar

Take a look at the 2023–24 Division calendar for dates you need to know about for this school year.

Health and safety

The Division continues to use several strategies that work together to protect our school communities and keep staff and students as safe as possible. Read how we’re working to prevent illness in schools.


SchoolZone is a secure website that holds important information about your child’s learning. Sign in to SchoolZone to find out more about:

  • homework
  • attendance records
  • progress reports (report cards)
  • school news and events

If your child is a new student, your school will give you a parent username and password. If you already have an account, but can’t remember your sign-in credentials, contact your school for help.


SchoolMessenger is an urgent message system that can call and text you when there is an emergency, like a fire or evacuation, at your child’s school. Learn more about SchoolMessenger and how to sign up.


Parents of students taking the bus can find route information and yellow bus tracking on SchoolZone.

Slow down

We want to remind motorists to slow down as students head back to classes. Drivers are required to slow to 30 km/h in all in playground zones from 7:30 a.m.–9 p.m. every day.

Celebrating the first day of school

School staff are so happy to have everyone back that they’re dancing. Check out their welcome-back video to kick off another incredible year.
