School District 5 Southeast Kootenay welcomes all children born between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018, and encourages parents to register their children at their catchment area school for September 2023 Kindergarten entry. 

School District 5 Southeast Kootenay provides a warm, caring learning environment for all students.  We offer our Kindergarten students a developmentally appropriate program along with access to computer technology, a Fine Arts program, student services support and, if parents choose, French Immersion.  French Immersion Kindergarten is available at T.M. Roberts Elementary School. 

To ensure your child is able to attend your catchment area school, please register early.

In any given year, registration and enrolment application forms shall only be accepted by the catchment area school commencing on the first school day in February. If you are unsure which school is your catchment area school, please visit the "school locator" on our district website at

All such applications will be dealt with on a first come, first served basis. A birth certificate or government issued documentation, along with proof of B.C. residency (i.e. mortgage statement, rental agreement, utility bill) must be provided at the time of registration. The child will not be registered until such documentation is made available.   

Parents who wish their child to attend a school outside their catchment area still need to register their child at their catchment area school.  To request a transfer, pick up a "Family Request for Student Placement Form" from your catchment area school and return to the School Board Office. These completed forms shall only be accepted by Board Office staff commencing on the first school day in February. Forms can also be submitted via email to  Please refer to Administrative Procedure 300 for more information.
