Posted August 23, 2022

GUELPH, ON – Get ready for school!

As the new school year quickly approaches – and parents/guardians prepare backpacks and lunch bags – we want to ensure that all students living within the boundaries of the Upper Grand District School Board are registered to their appropriate school.

On August 30, 2022 from 1 PM to 4 PM, registration will open online for parents and guardians to register their child to their home elementary school.

Note: Only newcomers to the UGDSB are required to register for the 2022 – 2023 school year. If your child attended a UGDSB school last year, you do not need to re-register.

Please register at your local school. To determine which school your child is eligible to attend, visit the UGDSB’s School Locator.
