Elk Island Catholic Schools and Elk Island Public School divisions are already looking ahead to the 2018-2019 school year.
 
This year though, gone are the days of filling the forms out by hand and making the journey to hand them in at the school.
 
All registrations must now be completed online for both EIPS and EICS. Parents who print the forms and hand them in to the office will no longer be accepted.
 
"It's a much more efficient way to handle the process," explained Laura McNabb with Elk Island Public Schools. "It also meets our commitments in terms of the provincial government's requirements to have all student records electronically."
 
Parents will little learners that turn five on or before December 31, can begin registering their kids for kindergarten starting on January 15.
 
"Parents will have to look at childcare needs, transportation needs so it's good to have that all sorted out well in advance and have people all set to go to start in September."
 
Come spring time, schools that offer kindergarten will be hosting a Kindergarten Information Night where parents and future students can tour the school, meet the teachers and learn more about the program, including what a typical day in kindergarten looks like.
