REGISTRATIONS for NEXT YEAR 2020-2021
Current EPSB Student Registrations:
For students currently in any of Edmonton Public’s schools, Riverbend pre-enrollments will be submitted in your Parent/Guardian SchoolZone account. Parents/Guardians within Edmonton Public need to have logged onto their SchoolZone Parent Account (not the student's account) and have electronically selected from the drop-down window the preferred school of their children for the Next Year school. Registrations of students within our Boundaries Map are ensured registration; while out-of-boundary registrations are considered by the school’s administration, dependent upon next year’s program capacities.
Sport Performance Program (Applications now Closed):
Sport Performance Program (SP) application process was open to all students registered for GRADE 8 next year at Riverbend (continuing Program participants please see bottom). Parents/Guardians were required to both 1) Register that student at Riverbend School for next year, and then 2) Additionally complete an SP Application Form. Both steps must have been completed before the deadline outlined below.
A single spot had become available in the GRADE 9 SP class for the 2020-2021 school year. Any Parents/Guardians who had wished to express interest in the grade 9 SP option class for next school year were asked to contact Riverbend School by April 27, 3:00 PM.
SP Application Forms were available here on the Riverbend School website April 16-27, 2020. Forms must have been received at the Riverbend School Office by the updated deadline of Monday, April 27th 2020, 4:00pm. Forms received after this time will not be accepted.
Students already in the program do not need to again apply, in order to remain through multiple years. Parents and students are encouraged to ask questions regarding the program. The program’s Twitter account (twitter.com/Riverbend_SP) offers insight, as does the informative Parent Meeting event, and of course questions can be asked of Mr. David (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Further information can be accessed in our SP Brochure. The dates within this brochure are void, due to COVID-19 delays. Only the updated SP information and dates, as stated above, are now accurate.
Academic Challenge Program (Applications now Closed):
Please note that Riverbend School is full in planned AC classes in Grades 7 to Grade 9, in the Challenge program. There is still room in the regular program.
Students that are not currently in our Academic Challenge Program (AC); who were interested in participating next year; and who are already assessed as Gifted and Talented, were required to both 1) Register at Riverbend School for next year, and then 2) Additionally complete an AC Application Form. Both steps must be completed within the pre-enrollment calendar window. AC forms were available here on the Riverbend School website during the pre-enrollment calendar window but are now closed. The deadline for AC applications to have been received at the school was April 15, 2020, 4:00pm.
AC applications were open to all students, Edmonton Public or otherwise, who are already coded Gifted and Talented, whether within Riverbend’s boundary or outside its boundary, equally and without advantage (the boundary or school division do not apply). Coding for Gifted and Talented is potentially acquired either at a student’s elementary school, or as assessed privately. Coding is not done by Riverbend School, no exceptions whatsoever, under any circumstances.
Please take note- It is important that students must have already been pre-enrolled at Riverbend in order to apply to AC. Applications received for those students not yet registered, or where coding does not exist, are therefore void and ineligible. Should AC program interest reach over-capacity, a random selection process* is held by the School Board by April 20, 2020 (*if necessary), and all AC applicants are each advised of their status, either way.
Further information can be accessed in our AC Brochure.
New to Edmonton Public Student Registrations:
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 school’s online 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 deadline of April 15, 2020 may limit your options to schools with available space. Learn more about registration dates and deadlines. Learn more about schools that have implemented a lottery process, and how it might impact new student registration.
