    2023-2024 NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION 

    New Student Registration

    New student registration began February 1, 2023. Families can visit the new student registration page on epsb.ca to register for the 2023-24 school year. This for students new to Edmonton Public Schools and Kindergarten. 

    Once you have submitted your completed student registration form and supporting documents, we will review all of the documents. We will contact you if we need clarification about any of the documents you submit. This does not mean your child has been enrolled at the school—we will call to confirm once your child is enrolled.  If the number of students who want to attend exceeds our available space, we may conduct a random selection.

    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.  

    Current Edmonton Public Students Pre-enrol in SchoolZone

    Get ready for the 2023–24 school year! Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between 9 a.m. on March 6 and 4 p.m. April 14 to select your child’s preferred school for next year. 

    Whether your child is staying at the same school or changing schools, all students need to pre-enrol. Knowing how many students to expect helps schools prepare to welcome them in September.

     If you need help, contact the school or read the Pre-enrolment Handout for Parents

    2022-2023 School Year

    Florence Hallock School is full in planned classes in the Regular program. A Kindergarten student who is a resident and lives in the school's attendance area may still register. We will now 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, you must register online.

    Children who are five years old on or before December 31, 2022 (born in 2017) may register in Kindergarten for the 2022-23 school year.  

    Online learning available at Argyll Centre

    Families of Grade 1–12 students who would like their child to learn online in 2022–23 can register or pre-enrol at Argyll Centre. Online learning will not be available at other Division schools. Families who choose Argyll Centre will not be connected to their current or designated school and may not be guaranteed a space there the following year.

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

    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

    Current School Year (2022-2023)

    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, 2022 to make sure your child receives service on the first day of school. Applications can be submitted throughout the school year.

    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. 

    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
