Please review the following information outlining documents needed and instructions to help register new learners. Due to COVID-19, our schools will be modifying registration this year to meet health and safety guidelines and support the needs of families. If you have any general questions about Kindergarten registration, please contact the school by phone: 604-888-5257 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You will need to produce the following documents:

You will need to do the following:

Please email Mrs. Sollows at email@example.com and submit copies of documents as attachments and not images inserted into the body of the email. This will streamline the process for both parents/guardians and staff. Registration may be delayed if the required documentation is not provided.
Please visit the school on Monday-Friday between 10:00 am-2:00 pm (you may be asked to wait outside if someone is currently registering). Upon arrival, please call Mrs. Sollows at the office for entry into the building (the school number is posted on the front door). Please abide by COVID-19 health and safety protocols, which include completing a health check upon entering, signing in as a visitor, maintaining physical distancing, and wearing a mask. Staff will make copies of any documents required. Registration may be delayed if the required documentation is not provided.
- Once your child’s information has been received, you will receive confirmation from the school informing you it has been received, along with other information, and further instructions (if necessary).
- We will be sending a ‘Welcome to Kindergarten’ package with valuable information and dates to get you and your family ready for September.
We look forward to meeting all our future JKE Jaguars very soon!
