Parents and Guardians: please read the messaging below as it may help you register to come to St. Emily. School begins on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.
If you are a NEWCOMER enquiring about registration for school - please REGISTER ONLINE at ocsb.ca/register; see below for further details and information.
Need to register your child?
Your first step is to register online at ocsb.ca/register. Students in grades 2-12 who meet the criteria for an assessment will be forwarded to Family Welcome Centre and you will receive information from us on the next steps involved. Students will not begin school until the assessment is performed.
Elementary schools are closed for the summer and will reopen on August 28th. If you are registering your child for an elementary school, the school will be in contact with you at that time. If you are registering for Junior Kindergarten please look to receive communication by email from your child's school on their staggered entry start date.
Need to know what school to register with?
Please use our school locator tool to determine which school is within your boundary:
If you are looking to register at a school outside of your boundary please see https://www.ocsb.ca/our-schools/boundaries/
What can you do to help plan for a smooth registration?
Prepare your supporting documents. The Ministry of Education regulations require that we verify supporting documents for every child attending school in Ontario. You are going to be asked to provide the following documents when completing your registration and these must be verified before students can begin school:
Proof of your child’s age - birth certificate, passport, or baptismal certificate.
Proof of your address in Ottawa (recent) - rental or purchase agreement for where you are living, recent utility bill, recent bank or credit card statement, recent cable/internet bill. Driver’s license and cell phone bills are not accepted.
Proof of Status - Canadian Passport, Permanent Resident document, Refugee or Refugee Claimant document, Parent Work Permit, Parent Study Permit, Diplomatic status. If submitting a Parent Study Permit a Letter of Acceptance is also required.
