    2021/2022 Registration

    NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION

    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.

    CURRENT DIVISION STUDENTS PRE-ENROL

    You will need to pre-enrol on SchoolZone to tell us the school you’d like your child to attend next year. Find important dates and deadlines and learn more about pre-enrolment, which opens between March and April each year.

    If you have questions about registering please contact the school office.

    We are still accepting students into Kindergarten from our primary (Matt Berry, Hollick Kenyon) and secondary (Brintnell) attendance areas.

    Grades 1-9 are full.

    Please note that Dr. Donald Massey School is closed from Grade 1 to 9 for families outside of Matt Berry and Hollick Kenyon neighbourhoods.  We are still accepting registrations for these grade levels 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 a non-Roman Catholic and who resides withing the City of Edmonton.  Non-resident students may only enrol in another Division school with space remaining in planned classes.

    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 submit 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

    Learn more about schools that have implemented a lottery process, and how it might impact new student registration.

Welcome

Welcome to Dr. Donald Massey School!

  Student Drop-off and Pick-up/Parking

The Dr. Donald Massey School community serves students in Grades K-9 and  wants to ensure the safety of all our students. We require that all our parents/guardians follow safety standards when dropping off or picking up their children from school.   

Parents are still welcome to use one of several drop off areas near our school.  Make arrangements to pick-up your child at the same location as drop-off. These include:

  • The south side of 162 avenue
  • The west side of 55 street
  • The east side of 54B street
  • The corner of 54 street and 159 avenue (by the Hollick-Kenyon Park sign - students would walk across the school field)

 

Parents are not allowed to use the staff parking lot when dropping off students.

 

 

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Welcome to Dr. Donald Massey School.

At Dr. Donald Massey School we believe that every student has the right to an excellent education and the responsibility to develop their talents and abilities while learning to live peacefully, protect the environment, and respect others.  Our school supports almost 1000 students from Grades K-9.  Our learning environment is positive and caring and thus supports individual differences, allowing all students to take risks in pursuit of excellence.  We strive to build strong relationships between our staff, students, families, and community.

This school year will be like no other.  Classrooms, hallways and non-instructional times will look different.  Learning in cohorts will include restrictions never before experienced by staff and students while an “unwell” student will warrant a heightened response.  However, as we strive to continue providing the top quality education program our students deserve in these uncertain times, we must remember that:  

“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”

Albert Einstein

Therefore we, the dedicated, highly functioning and collaborative team at Dr. Donald Massey, will continue to use our collective wisdom to challenge students to be the best that they can be.   We will strive to create a safe and welcoming learning environment through this year’s theme  “Empower the Spirit” that is based on the Seven Sacred Teachings on human conduct towards others:  Love, Respect, Courage, Honesty, Wisdom, Humility and Truth.  We will endeavor to help students see mistakes not as failures, but as essential parts of the learning process whether they are learning in-class or on-line.  We will help students be accountable for their conduct and assume their rightful responsibilities as learners while developing positive relationships with others.  

We cannot do this incredibly important work without you.  It takes a village to support a child in their journey through life, through education.  We look forward to walking that journey with you and together making sure your child’s educational experience at Dr. Donald Massey is one they will forever be proud of.  



Sincerely,

Cheryl Belyea

Principal

Dr. Donald Massey School
