Staggered Entry

We will be having a staggered start for Kindergarten students only.  The start of the year will look a bit different.  Essentially this means not all Kindergarten students will start school at the same day.  Half of our Kindergarten students will come to school the first day and then the other half will come to school the next day. Please reach out to us preferably by a phone call if you have further questions.   

  • Kindergarten families with their last name starting alphabetically from A - L will start on Wednesday September 1 2021.  They do not attend school on Thursday September 2 2021. 
  • Kindergarten families with their last name starting alphabetically from  M-Z will start Thursday September 2 2021.  They do not attend school on Wednesday September 1 2021. 
  • All Gr 1 - 4 students return to regular classes on Wednesday September 1 2021.

Our bell times are 8:02 AM - 2:50 PM as posted on our Contact Us page.

​​​Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2021-22 school year are created o​ver the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in June. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline; however, students are added to the closest existing stop with available space. Processing times could be up to six weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

More information about 2021-22 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Your bus stop location and time will be available in your MyCBE account by mid-August.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed.

Learn more about transportation on the CBE website.

We look forward to a great year ahead. If you have any questions that we haven’t addressed here, please contact the school.
