Mark your calendars! Kindergarten registration for the 2018-19 school year is Jan. 9-19

November 13, 2017

GUELPH, Ontario – Exciting changes are coming as Upper Grand District School Board staff get ready to welcome our newest students to the board.

Kindergarten registration for the 2018-2019 school year will take place from January 9 to 19, 2018, and will feature a new online pre-registration process.

All Kindergarten students (JK and SK) who are new to the UGDSB must pre-register online at Students entering SK next year who are already attending an UGDSB school this year are not required to pre-register online.

Pre-registering online will allow parents to fill out a Student Admission Form at a time and place that’s convenient to them. Each elementary school will have a computer available for families to pre-register online at the school if you do not have access at home. 

Once they’ve pre-registered online, parents must go into their child’s home school before the Jan. 19th deadline, to drop off required documentation and complete their registration.

Kindergarten Registration steps for all new Kindergarten students

  1. Between Jan. 9-19, 2018, pre-register your child online at UGDSB Pre-Registration Online Form
    1. In the online pre-registration site, use the school locator feature to determine which school your child can attend
    2. Check for a confirmation email indicating you’ve successfully completed pre-registration
