Important Time-Sensitive Info For All SWH Students for 2018-2019 School Year
All SWH current students must complete the NEW online pre-enrolment process between March 1st and 15th. This process applies to all grades and to all students whether you plan to continue on at Sherwood Heights or register at a different school for next year.
Our Central office sent out an email communication to all EIPS families on Monday, February 12th with information regarding the enrolment process in a school for the upcoming school year. This process asks families to indicate the school their child plans to attend; apply to attend a non-designated school, if applicable; and update any required student information—such as phone numbers, addresses and emergency contacts.
If circumstances change, families also have the ability to update their child’s data at any time throughout the year. This eliminates the need for the Correction Forms that were sent home with students each September.
Boundary Exemption Process Changed
To be considered for a non-designated school in 2018-19, you must make that request through the pre-enrolment process between March 1 and 15, 2018. The pre-enrolment process eliminates the annual Boundary Exemption Request Process. Now, returning student families who want to apply to enrol their child at a non-designated school can do so through the pre-enrolment process—acceptance is based on available space. Some EIPS schools have closed boundaries because of high enrolment numbers and will not accept non-designated students for the 2018-19 school year.
Elk Island Public Schools' website also has some information regarding the new enrolment process. Link below.
Registration Information Evening
Parents/students new to Sherwood Heights for the 2018-2019 school year are welcome to attend our registration information evening on Wednesday, April 11th from 7:00-8:30 p.m. This is an open house style event with no formal program - come and go as you are able. The intent of the evening is to allow students and parents to visit all programs offered at SWH to help make final decisions about specific course requests for the fall. Our staff and administration will be available during the evening to answer any questions you may have. See you then!
