And that’s a wrap on the 2023-24 school year!  

Before you head into summer, be sure to take a quick look back at the year that was in this short highlight reel. Thanks to all staff, students, and families for another awesome year of learning!  

Here are a few important notes:  

Student Registration 

Are you moving this summer? Looking to sign up for Pre-Primary? Know someone who is new to our school system? We are accepting registrations for Pre-Primary through Grade 12 online. You can find more information here. If you need assistance with registration, our Parent Navigators are available to help.   

Summer Support for Families 

Our SchoolsPlus Team is available throughout the summer months to support students and families. Parents, guardians, and students (12+) can self-refer by calling 902-464-2041 or emailing schoolsplus@hrce.ca. Support is free and confidential. 

Student Transportation  

If your child is eligible for busing, you will be able to view their 2024-25 schedule in BusPlanner’s Parent Portal at the end of July. An email notification to bus-eligible families will be sent as a reminder. If you need support or have any questions over the summer, please call 902-431-4723 or email transportation@hrce.ca. Please have your child’s name, grade, school name and student ID number ready.  


As we update our systems for the coming year, PowerSchool will be offline as of July 2. It will reopen to students and parents/guardians on September 4, 2024.
