​Important Dates

We follow the CBE Traditional Calendar. The calendar sets common start and end days, non-instructional days and holidays. For our school’s additional non-instructional days, late entries, early dismissal days and events, see our school calendar page.


The Alberta Government announced on July 21 that schools will be in Scenario 1 as of Sept. 1, 2020.  

The CBE's 2020-21 re-entry plan is subject to change as more information becomes available from the province. We will continue to update schools with more details during the next school year.​​

Registration Information

Please visit our How to Register page for all registration details and registration forms. 

We are a capped school for the 2020-2021 school year.  We are no longer accepting registrations for the year as we are full and have students on a waitlist.  Our overflow school is McKenzie Lake School.  Please contact them to register your child for the school year.  Please let us know via email at newbrighton@cbe.ab.ca if you would like to be placed on our waitlist. 

Yellow School Bus Transportation

New Brighton School will not have transportation as everyone lives within the walk limit.  However, New Brighton families attending McKenzie Lake School will need to register for transportation.
