School registration is only necessary if your family has students who are new to the division. Students already attending an RVS school are automatically registered at their designated school.
Registration for students new to RVS in the 2024/25 school year is now open.
Students will be admitted to Grade 1 at their designated school if:
- The child has completed a Kindergarten program and is six years of age by December 31 in the year they begin school.
- The child is seven years old by December 31 of the current school year, and has not attended school previously.
* A child who has not completed a Kindergarten program and is six years of age by December 31 in the year they begin school may be admitted to Kindergarten OR Grade 1 at their designated school at the beginning of that year.
If you need to register, you will need some Registration Documents on hand.
All registration must be completed online. Paper application forms are no longer available. For assistance with digital registration, please visit your designated school.
Information specific to online school registration (RVS Online Elementary/Middle and RVS Online High School) can be found on RVS Online Schools.
For further information on registering for programs of choice such as Christian programs, French immersion, and home education please see Programs of Choice.
For assistance with registering online, please call 403-945-4115.
Expect to receive an email from the school a few days after your child has been registered notifying you if they have been approved.
If you have registered during the summer months when schools are closed, your registration will be reviewed when schools open during the last week of August. At that time, you will receive your notification email.
If your family has students currently attending RVS, but you have moved and your children need to transfer to their new designated school, please email both schools to request a transfer. You will need to provide your new address, as well as proof of residence and the start date.
RVS parents who would like to enrol their child at a school other than their designated school must complete AF305-A Out Of Attendance Area Application and submit it to their designated school.
After the form is signed by administration at your designated school, please bring the form and a letter outlining why you are requesting the change to your school of choice. That school’s administration will work with you to determine if the transition is possible.
Parents living outside RVS boundaries who would like to enrol their child in an RVS school must also complete AF305-A Out Of Attendance Area Application and submit it to the school of choice to be considered for out-of-area enrolment.
Unenrol a Student
To withdraw/unenrol a student from a school, please contact the school directly.
After completing your school registration, you may complete the Bus Registration form located in SchoolEngage just below the registration form. Visit Busing & Transportation for more information. Transportation registration for the next school year is available each spring.
