About Our School

Welcome to the About Our School section of this website.  These pages are geared towards providing the information you need to know about how our school operates, what our educational focus is as well as what makes us unique. Select from the left sidebar or drop down menus to read more.

 

Schools are currently Closed to Students and Visitors due to Covid - 19

If you are new to the district (i.e. did not attend an Edmonton public school in the last year, or have a child that will be a new student at an Edmonton Public School ie. Kindergarten) please review the adapted registration process below for the 2020/2021 school year. 

 

 

 

 

New Student Registration Information: 2020-2021 School Year

Which Grades and Classes are no longer accepting registrations?

Please note that Rideau Park is full in planned classes in Grades 4 and 5 in the German Bilingual Program. The school is also full in Grades 2 to 6 in the Regular Program. We are still accepting registrations in these grades in the Regular program if you are a resident of Edmonton Public Schools and have newly moved into our attendance area after April 15, 2020.  A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian that is non-Roman catholic and who resides within the City of Edmonton. Non-resident students may only enrol in another Division school with space remaining in planned classes. 

 

 

New Student Online Registration Information  

Because schools remain closed to students and visitors due to Covid-19, New Student registrations will now be submitted online. If your child is new to the division, you must complete our school's online registration form, fill out and upload the student registration form and supporting documents before your child(ren) can be registered for the upcoming school year. 

Our school will no longer accept printed registrations. Do not drop off student registration forms at the school.  
Submitting a registration package after the deadline of April 15, 2020 may limit your options to schools with available space. Learn more about registration Dates and Deadlines.
