    Registration - Lottery Process


    Welcome to Jan Reimer School! 

    If your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, you can register for school online. Visit the Division website to learn how to register for school


    Get ready for the 2024–25 school year! Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between February 1 and March 22 to select your child’s preferred school for next year. 

    Whether your child is staying at the same school or changing schools, all students need to pre-enrol. Knowing how many students to expect helps schools prepare to welcome them in September.

    If you need help, please contact the school office at 587-489-4716.

    LOTTERY PROCESS at Jan Reimer 

    Jan Reimer will continue to have a lottery process in place for new resident attendance area students enrolling at the school for the 2024–25 school year. This will not impact current students who attend the school.

    The school will not accept new registrations from families in the attendance area if the student is not a resident of Edmonton Public Schools. In most cases, a resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic.

    Resident students who aren’t selected through the lottery process can attend the overflow designated school, Satoo School (K-Grade 6) or KISÊWÂTISIWIN School (Grade 7-9), a Division school with space in planned classes, or remain at their current school, if applicable.

    Siblings of current students attending Jan Reimer
    New resident students in the attendance area who have a sibling returning to the school next year will get priority, but are not guaranteed to attend. 

    More information about the lottery process

    Watch the Growth Control Model video for an overview of the lottery process. You can also read more about the lottery process on the Edmonton Public Schools website. If you have any other questions, please contact the school at 587-489-4716

    REGISTRATION AFTER March 22, 2024

    For the 2024 - 2025 school year, Jan Reimer School is full in planned classes in Kindergarten and Grade 5. Resident students in Kindergarten and Grade 5 whose parent(s)/legal guardian(s) have newly moved into the school’s attendance area for the regular program will now have access to the overflow designated schools - Satoo School (Kindergarten to Grade 6). For these grades, new resident* students to the Division after pre-enrolment closes on March 22, 2024, can be added to the bottom of the callback list.

    Students can attend their overflow designated school, another school with space, or remain at their current school, if applicable. *A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic.

    We remain open for all other grades to resident attendance area students only.

    Yellow bus service to SATOO SCHOOL or KISÊWÂTISIWIN SCHOOL will be available for eligible students. Bus fees will apply.

    Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) is the preferred transportation method for junior high and high school students; however, if ETS does not meet Division standards, eligible students attending their overflow designated school may be able to apply for yellow bus service. Bus fees will apply.
