    Registration for the 2020-21 School Year

    "Please note that York School is full in planned classes in Grades 1 to 6 for families outside of the school's attendance area.  If you live in our attendance area and are looking for a space in Kindergarten only, please register using the school's online process.  We are also still accepting registrations in all grade levels if you are a resident of Edmonton Public Schools and have newly moved into our attendance area after April 15, 2020.

    A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian that is non-Roman Catholic and who resides within the City of Edmonton.  Non-resident students may only enrol in another Division school with space remaining in planned classes. "

    Moved and/or changed your phone number?  Please e-mail the school (york@epsb.ca).


    Because schools remain closed to students and visitors due to COVID-19, new student registrations will now be submitted online. If your child is new to the Division, you must complete our York On-Line Registration Form, fill out and upload the Student Registration form and submit supporting documents before your child(ren) can be registered for the upcoming school year.

    Our school will no longer accept printed registrations.  Do not drop off student registration forms at the school.

    Submitting a registration package after the deadine of April 15, 2020 may limit your options to schools with available space. Learn about registration dates and deadlines.


    STEP 1:  FILL OUT THE York On-Line Registration Form

    You will need to use an existing Gmail account or set up a free Gmail account to fill out the York On-Line Registration Form. This helps us protect the privacy of your personal information. 


    Upload copies of the following documents:

    • a completed, signed Student Registration form (fill out the form electronically, print a copy and scan the completed copy, or print and take clear photos of each completed page).
    • confirmation of address for the student's parent/guardian (see below)
    • legal proof of the student's name, citizenship and birthdate (see below)

    All documents must be uploaded in order to submit the form.  Please ensure that you are providing clear photos and the entire page is visible for each document submitted. 


    Legal Proof of Student's Name:

    • Canadian provincial birth certificate
    • Canadian citizenship document
    • passport
    • student visa

    In some cases, immigration documents (e.g. landed immigrant documentation or a Permanent Residence Card) may also be required.  Visit Citizenship and Immigration Canada for more information.

    Confirmation of Address

    • driver's licence
    • utility bill
    • home insurance
    • property tax bill

    In some cases, you may be asked to provide more than one of the above.


    Families who are unable to register online can mail their completed Student Registration Form and copies of their supporting documents to the following address:

    Central Records

    18004-116 Avenue NW

    Edmonton, AB

    T5S 1L5

    To be part of the Edmonton Public Schools pre-enrolment process, we strongly suggest families register online to ensure their docments are received before 4PM on April 15, 2020, in case postal service is interrupted.


    Once you have submitted your completed student registration form and supporting documents, we will review all of the documents.  This does not mean your child has been enrolled at the school - we will contact you to let you once your child has been enrolled. 

    We will contact you if we need clarification about any of the documents you submit.

  • School Philosophy

    School Philosophy

    At York School, we believe that learning must be centered on each child’s ability to reach their full potential.  As educators and role models, we nurture this belief in all children.  We have a strong emphasis on academics and citizenship and provide a safe learning environment that encourages students to take risks in their learning.  Our students must have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be global citizens of the future.

    We believe that if children cannot learn the way we teach, we must teach the way they can learn.  We believe in fostering open and honest communication between teachers, students, and parents to develop positive self-awareness and a love of learning.

    We are committed to developing students who are truly literate.  Students must be actively engaged in their learning, think deeply about what they have learned and know how to problem solve.  Our goal is to ensure that every student at York receives the support and encouragement in their learning to ensure that they are successful in their futures.

York School is a safe, caring environment where all children are challenged to be their very best. The success of York students is due to their responsible and active participation in their own learning. Staff, students and parents work together to support the learning and academic success of each child.

At York, we are committed to developing students who are truly literate. The term literacy related to both reading and writing in all content areas and suggests the simultaneous development and mutually reinforcing effects  of these two aspects of communication. We want students to think deeply and express themselves in all content areas. Students need to become independent thinkers who know how to problem solve.




Principal's Message

Hello York Students and Families,

Welcome back to York School!

We are prepared and ready to take on this new school year with new protocols in place.  Our staff has been working hard to create ways of facilitating learning that take into account our new reality as we navigate the COVID-19 virus.  Things are different here as we have made changes for the safety of our staff and students, but there are some things that will never change --we are committed to doing our best to build relationships with our students and families, to help our students learn, and to create a school culture where we care about each other and strive to do our best.  There is much that we cannot control outside of our walls, but inside, we are still the caring school family we have always been.

As a new principal, I am excited to be on this journey with all of you, and I am honored to learn everything I can about how things work in elementary school from our amazing staff and students.

I know that together we will move past the challenges of COVID -19 and make the 2020-2021 school year the best it can be.  Please call me at the school if you have any questions or concerns.

In partnership,

Shelley Kotyk
