Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to the Frequently Asked Questions section of our website.
I am looking for a school for my child. How can I find information about the various programs schools provide?
How can I find out when my child’s school will have inservices?
Can my child attend the WSD free nursery program?
Will my child have to go outside for recess when it is very cold outside?
How do I know if school buses have been cancelled on mornings when the wind chill is very high?
School bus transportation for all school divisions in the City of Winnipeg is cancelled when the wind chill reaches -45° C by 6:15 a.m. based on the Environment Canada readings at The Forks, Winnipeg (click here for latest readings at The Forks). When bus transportation is cancelled in the morning, it will not resume later in the day even if weather conditions improve.
Who runs the school lunch programs?
We live within WSD boundaries. Do my children need to go to the school within the catchment area where we live?
I do not live within the boundaries of WSD. Can my child attend a school in Winnipeg School Division?
A non-resident student may be admitted to a school of choice: provided there is space available in the class or school; the student does not require an individual educational plan or additional support services which would incur costs to WSD; and the student is not seeking to register in a program of studies for which the home school division is obligated to pay under the Public Schools Act (e.g., vocational programs).
The priority for accepting students is as follows:
- Resident students from within the local catchment area;
- Resident students aged 4 to 20 from other school catchment areas;
- Resident students aged 21 years and over;
- Non-resident students aged 5 to 20 years;
- Non-resident students aged 21 years and over (fees applicable).
Non-resident students must register before September 30.
