  • Registration for the 2021-22 School Year

    Registration for the 2021-22 School Year


    Please click on the link to view the York School Virtual Open House. 

    York School is full in planned classes in Kindergarten to Grade 6 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 6 who newly move into the school's attendance area for the regular program.  A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has a 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 register for Kingergarten or if you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online. 


    If you have questions about registering for school, contact the school office.

    If your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, you can register for school online. Visit the Division website to learn how to register for school.

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

    Families who are unable to register online can mail or drop off completed student registration forms and supporting documents to the school.  Please contact the school office at 780-476-6336 to inquire about the process.

    Submitting a registration package after the deadine of April 15, 2021 may limit your options to schools with available space. Learn about registration dates and deadlines.


    STEP 1:  FILL OUT THE EPSB Registration Form

    STEP 2: UPLOAD A COMPLETED Student Registration Form and Supporting Documentation

    Upload copies of the following documents:

    • a completed, signed Student Registration Form (fill out the form electronically)
    • 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

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

    You will be asked to provide two of the above for confirmation of address.


    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 know 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
