The first step to starting the upcoming school year will be taking place this week across the Fort.
Registration days are set up at most schools where students will receive identification pictures, locker selections and their timetables for the upcoming semester.
At Fort High, registration will start tomorrow (August 22) for Grade 11 and 12 students, with Grade 10 students registering the following day.
For ElCS, they'll start the final high school registration at JPII later this week with Grade 9 and 12 on Thursday and Grade 10 and 11 on Friday.
"This year will be a transition year for some of our students since we're opening up St. Andre Bessette in the summer of 2018," said Justine Wright, board chair and Fort Saskatchewan trustee with Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS).
Wednesday, August 30, is the first day of school for both Elk Island Public Schools and Elk Island Catholic Schools.
