Parents should be aware that students may be required to attend a school outside of their usual attendance area if class enrolments exceed 20.

Parents/Guardians of Early French Immersion applicants will be notified by Tuesday, February 8, 2024 if they have been accepted into the program, and what school they should register during the weeks of February 12-23. If your child has been placed on a waitlist, please register at your catchment area school to ensure a placement.

If a parent wishes for a child to attend a school other than their catchment area school, an online non-catchment application form must be completed. Non-catchment applications will be accepted online only commencing February 5, 2024 at 8:30 a.m. Applications received prior to March 1, 2024 will receive priority in their respective category. Approvals will be processed as soon as possible, but may be held until the second week of September, therefore, parents should register their child at their catchment area school the weeks of February 12-23, 2024 to ensure a placement. Schools will hold non-catchment forms until approved by the Assistant Superintendent; no approval of non-catchment requests may be given at the school level.

Non-district students applying for Kindergarten in Delta must complete an online non-district application form. Non-district applications will be accepted online only commencing February 5, 2024 at 8:30 a.m. Applications received prior to March 1, 2024 will receive priority in their respective category. Parents of non-district students should be advised that a decision regarding entry into the Delta Kindergarten program may not be made until the second week of September, therefore, should register for their catchment area school in their home district to ensure a placement.

Once the school has received approval from the Assistant Superintendents’ Office, non-district students may then register for the designated school.

Please fill out one Non-Catchment or Non-District Application form only. If you have a second and/or third choice, please make note of them on the same form and in order of preference. Please note: Due to space restrictions, Gray, Ladner and Richardson Elementary Schools will only be accepting Non-Catchment and Non-District Applications for those students who have siblings already attending the school. Families that fall in this category, please contact Gray, Ladner or Richardson for more information on how to apply.
