  • REGISTRATION

    REGISTRATION

    Important notice: Florence Hallock School is not holding an open house in 2024.

    2024-2025 NEW & RETURNING STUDENT PRE-REGISTRATION

    Registration and pre-enrolment for 2024-25 is from 8:00 a.m. on February 1, 2024 to 4:00 p.m. on March 22, 2024.

    Every year, Edmonton Public Schools asks families to pre-enrol their children so schools can make sure the right supports are in place to welcome students each fall. We wanted to let you know that, in 2024, the deadline to select your preferred school for the next school year will be earlier than usual. This change makes it easier for schools to plan the budgets and staffing they need to support students for the upcoming school year. 

    Due to high demand for space, Florence Hallock School has closed boundaries, meaning only resident students from within the attendance area and siblings of current students returning to the school the following year will be accommodated.  Use the Find a School tool to find your designated school.

    Kindergarten and Students New to Edmonton Public Schools

    • Resident students can attend their designated school if they make their selection between 8 a.m. on February 1 and 4 pm on March 22, 2024. In most cases, a resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. 
    • If you are registering for Kindergarten or are new to Edmonton Public Schools, select 2024-25 when you register online

    Children who are five years old on or before December 31, 2024 (born in 2019) may register in Kindergarten for the 2024-25 school year.

    Returning Florence Hallock students

    • Between 8 a.m. on February 1 and 4 pm on March 22, 2024, sign in to your parent SchoolZone account to choose where you would like your returning child to attend school next fall.

    Watch for important reminders about enrolment on SchoolZone and on the Division’s social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram and X, formerly Twitter).

    Read full details about pre-enrolment and see important dates and deadlines on epsb.ca.

     

    2023-2024 NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION 

    For the 2023 - 2024 school year, Florence Hallock School is full in planned classes from Kindergarten to Grade 9.

    A Kindergarten student who is a resident and lives in the school's attendance area may still register. We will only accept resident students in Grades 1 to 9 who have newly moved into the school’s attendance area for the regular program. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes.

    If you are registering for Kindergarten or if you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, please register online

    Children who are five years old on or before December 31, 2023 (born in 2018) may register in Kindergarten for the 2023-24 school year.  

    If you have questions about registration, please email us at florencehallock@epsb.ca or call the office at 780-478-1410.

    Transportation

    PARKING AND TRAFFIC

    Click to see the FLORENCE HALLOCK SCHOOL TRAFFIC APP

    Streets around our school are often very congested during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. To help keep our students safe, we need you to do your part by slowing down and following traffic safety laws.  

    30 km/h school zones

    Starting September 2, 2015 a lower speed limit in school zones came into effect in Edmonton. You must slow down to 30km/h around schools between 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. where signs are present. 

    Speed limits will be strictly enforced by both the Edmonton Police Service and the City of Edmonton’s Office of Traffic Safety during posted hours.

    General safety reminders

    • Remain courteous and patient
    • Drive slowly and watch for students crossing the road
    • Abide all traffic signs and laws
    • Use designated crosswalks
    • Respect school staff and volunteers assisting with drop-off and pick-up
    • Park further away from the school and walk the rest of the way
    • Use Edmonton Transit or other ways to get to school (walk, ride a bike or roll!)

    For information about getting to school, visit epsb.ca/schools/gettoschool.

    BUS SERVICE

    Service for Elementary Students

    Yellow bus (fixed route/regular) service is only provided to elementary students at their primary designated school. Transportation will not be provided to students living in the school's neighbourhood walk boundary or outside of the catchment area.

    Service for Junior High Students

    Edmonton Transit System (ETS) is the preferred way for junior high students to get to school. 

    Applying for yellow bus service

    2023-2024 School Year

    Whether your child is new to yellow bus service or a current rider, you need to apply for yellow bus service each school year.  The deadline to apply for yellow bus service is June 1, 2023 to make sure your child receives service on the first day of school. Applications can be submitted throughout the school year. To learn about busing, see Get to School. Please contact the school to see if transportation is available to your address.

    If your child has been approved for yellow bus service, you’ll be notified in mid-August with the route number, stop locations, pick up and drop off times and bus company contact information. 

    First Riders Program (TBA for 2024)

    All K–6 students taking the bus for the first time are invited to the Edmonton Expo Centre on Tuesday, August 29 for the 15th annual First Riders event. This free event is a unique hands-on opportunity for you and your child to get familiar with riding the bus before the school year begins. Grade 7 students new to Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) and families wanting a refresher are welcome too.  Afternoon sessions run every half-hour from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Evening sessions run every half-hour from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Please register by August 25 to save your spot.  

    Next School Year (2024-2025)

    • New applicants can register using the 2024-2025 Application form when in become available in early 2024.

    Bus passes

    Students who receive bus service must buy a bus pass. Yellow bus, and subsidized ETS passes, can be purchased at your child’s school each month.  If you wish to purchase an ETS bus, please contact the school so we can put the fee on your child's SchoolZone.

    Ride times

    Minimizing ride times for students is our highest priority. We’ll work to make sure yellow bus service is as efficient as possible and meets the District’s ride time standards. We’ll also continue our ongoing work with the City of Edmonton to discuss how to best provide efficient ETS service for district students.

    For information about getting to school, visit epsb.ca/schools/gettoschool.

Welcome

It is our goal to provide our very diverse group of students with exceptional opportunities to grow as individuals, and to grow together as a group. This can only be accomplished through the combined efforts of an exemplary staff, and supportive and informed parents, who, together, hold common expectations for appropriate student conduct and student learning.

We will continue to challenge students to be the best that they can be; to accept their own and others' strengths and weaknesses; to celebrate success, and to see mistakes not as failure, but as an essential part of the learning process; to be accountable for their conduct and the development of positive relationships with others; and to assume their rightful responsibilities as learners. Please see link to the left for the Student Rights and Responsibilities document.

Throughout the school year we will create opportunities for our families to participate in meetings, celebrations, after school activies and special days at school.  Parents and students will receive these communications through Schoolzone.

Florence Hallock School has been modeled around being environmentally friendly both with the structure of the building itself and the many practices that our teachers and students have put into place to ensure that we support our environment as well. With this goal in mind, please remember to check Schoolzone regularly—passwords are sent out in September for all parents to access Schoolzone for each child in the family. It is very important that you have current and valid email addresses in your child's demographic file so that you will receive notice of postings relative to your children at the school. SchoolZone gives you access to school information, report cards, attendance, as well as specific classroom information for each of your children. If you require assistance with this, please contact the school office.

Regards,

Tanis Marshall

Principal
