Registration will be held by appointment only at St. Margaret of Scotland School

We are very excited as we plan for Kindergarten next year!  Check out our school website and look at “Getting Ready for Kindergarten” to meet our educators, see our school and learn more about our kindergarten program and what you can do to help your child get ready for school: https://stmargaret.wcdsb.ca (under the ‘About Us’ tab)

The mother, father or legal guardian of the child registering for Kindergarten is asked to visit our Waterloo Catholic District School Board website at wcdsb.ca to register their child(ren) for Kindergarten. Look for the tab at the top of your screen that says, “Register”. Next, scroll down and select “Kindergarten Registration”. You will start by completing our online registration.  You will next call our school at 519 622-6100 to schedule a time to visit us to complete the registration process. If you do not have internet access, we invite you to call our school to schedule an appointment to come in and register your child(ren). Children with special needs (e.g., speech and language, vision, hearing, intellectual) should register at the school in their home area.

When you visit our school, we will be very happy that you are here but there will be health and safety protocols to follow.  Whenever possible, please have only one parent or guardian attend, wear a mask, sanitize hands upon entry, maintain physical distancing when in the school and stay behind the plexiglass in the main office. The following documents will be required: a birth certificate or other legal proof of your child’s age, proof of home address and a Catholic Baptismal Certificate of either parent or child.  If you are a non-Catholic, but wish to explore a Catholic education for your child(ren), please review the WCDSB Admissions to Catholic Elementary Schools policy or give us a call to learn more!

    The Immunization of School Pupils Act, 1982 states that the Region of Waterloo Public Health must have a record of your child’s immunization in order to attend school in Ontario and you can complete this report online at:  Region of Waterloo, Immunization Reporting.  If you choose not to list immunizations for your child, you must contact the Region of Waterloo Public Health at 519-575-4400 x. 5003 for exemption information.

 

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our St. Margaret of Scotland- community.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
