As this is a regional program, classes may be located outside of your home school area. Please be advised that transportation will not be provided if your child does not meet the Board’s eligibility requirements as per Board Policy II-24 Home to School Transportation.

Can siblings attend the same school if my child is in the Early French Immersion program?

Enrolment in Extended French Immersion does not guarantee that siblings can attend the same school. It is possible to have one sibling attending one school while another sibling attends a different school. Parents have the option of submitting a cross-boundary​ request, however, these requests are subject to approval and annual review. Transportation is not provided to cross-boundary students. If a sibling is granted cross-boundary permission, s/he must apply for a courtesy seat​ on the bus, which is also subject to approval. It should be noted that each year, the siblings must re-apply: there is no guarantee from year to year.
