NOTE:

  • Once you Add a new student - parents will have access to register a child for kindergarten using the "A.2) EICS Pre-K to 12 Registration Form - In Person Learning."
  • For current EICS pre-K students registering for kindergarten, parents just need to fill out the "A.1) 2021-2022 Kindergarten/Pre-K Preference Form." This for is used by parents of existing students at EICS to indicate their programming preferences for next year Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten programming. 

To complete the form successfully you'll also need to ensure that you have a copy of the child's citizenship documentation (e.g. Canadian Birth Certificate, Permanent Residence Card, Student Study Permit, etc.).  For students who are not Canadian citizens, we are also required to maintain parent documentation on file (e.g. Permanent Residence Card, Work Permit, etc.)

Once your child is registered with the district they will automatically be added to your PowerSchool account.
