    McKernan School - Registration Information - UPDATE

    Please note that McKernan School is full in planned classes and will no longer be accepting enrolment in:
    1) French Immersion Kindergarten, Grades 1, 7 and 9.
    2) English Grades 4, 5 and 6.
    3) Spanish Grade 8
    4) Regular program Grades 7 and 9.
    We are accepting registrations in all other grade levels. For Grades 7 and 9 in the regular program, we will accept your registration 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 non-Roman Catholic and who resides within 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

    We will contact you if we need clarification about any of the documents you submit.

    For junior high and high school registrations—once we confirm your enrolment, we will reach out to you for your course requests. 

    Families interested in the Late French Immersion Program or Pre-AP, please submit the following documents to mckernan@epsb.ca

Principal's Message


Welcome to the 2019-20 school year. I hope that your summer was all that you wanted it to be. I am proud, and fortunate, to be the principal of McKernan School. The long standing tradition of excellence is well documented. I believe that the health of a school is determined by its culture, and that culture is based upon a solid foundation of respectful interdependent relationships between the home, the school and the community.

I am looking forward to continuing to develop strong, trusting, mutually respectful relationships with McKernan’s students and parents over the course of the 2019-20 school year.  Collectively, as the staff members of McKernan School, we appreciate that you entrust us with the educational, social, emotional and physical development of your children. The staff and I are committed to providing a safe, caring and engaging environment that is conducive to learning at the highest levels. We are focused on continuing to embed a collaborative culture in our practice that allows us to develop students as well-rounded, responsible, respectful citizens. This is how I strive to raise my own children.

I am, and always will be, a teacher first. I make all of my decisions in the best interests of kids; all kids. I hope that you share my enthusiasm, as we move forward together in the 2019-20 school year.

Pre-enrol for 2020-2021

Pre-enrol in SchoolZone 

  • Get ready for the 2020-21 school year! Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between March 9 and April 15  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, contact the school or read the pre-enrolment handout. 



  • Update your child’s current address with the school office before pre-enrolling in SchoolZone.
