Is my child eligible to go to school?

For the 2021-2022 school year (registration opens January 5, 2021):

What are the program choices for my child?

In the Upper Grand District School Board, we use the blended program model. Junior and senior kindergarten students learn in the same classroom. All our elementary schools provide Full Day Kindergarten (FDK) for 4 and 5 year olds.

As a parent/guardian you have the option of enrolling your child in the English program or the French Immersion Program. The French Immersion and English programs share the same Ministry Kindergarten Program and expectations. In French Immersion the program is taught only in French.

French Immersion caps and entry point

Please note that each UGDSB elementary school that offers FI has a Junior Kindergarten enrolment cap. JK is the only entry point for French Immersion in Upper Grand. Entry into FI from other jurisdictions is possible if your child has previous FI experience. Check with the school for more detail.

You can only register for one school in the UGDSB.  Registration in more than one school will void all registrations.
