Updates Regarding the New K-9 School in Fort Saskatchewan

The new K-9 school in the City of Fort Saskatchewan now has a name: SouthPointe School, named after the community it resides in. The Board of Trustees approved the name at their meeting on April 21, 2016.

During the same meeting, the Board also approved the new elementary attendance school boundaries for the City of Fort Saskatchewan, which take effect at the start of the 2017–2018 school year. The new elementary boundaries will help ease current utilization issues at the elementary schools in Fort Saskatchewan; provide a more balanced long-term growth strategy between schools; and offer a healthy sense of community at each school.

In May, all families directly affected by the new attendance boundaries will receive a letter in the mail to notify them what their new designated school is for the 2017–2018 school year.

More detailed information about the new SouthPointe School, the elementary attendance boundary map, grandfathering, student transportation, and the extended boundary exemption request process is available on the Division website.

These boundaries do not effect Fort Christian as we are a school of choice.
