Online Regisration/Verification for the 2019-2020 School Year
Registration for school and/or busing in Parkland School Division is conducted exclusively online. ALL parents/guardians MUST complete a registration form or verify and/or update information on file before their student(s) can be registered for the upcoming school year.
All students from K-12 will be able to either register (new students) or verify their existing data (returning students) online, beginning February 4, 2019.
To ensure that their child receives a bus pass prior to the start of the school year, parents are required to complete registration by 4:30pm on March 22, 2019. This deadline will facilitate the routing of buses, bus pass production and data verification before the summer break while schools are still operating.

Stony Plain Library Event
We are invited to a program at the Library on Saturday afternoon, March 16th between 2:30-4pm to help bring continued awareness to families in need. They are sharing with the families of the community free baked goodies and lemonade made by the My PATH students in hopes of collecting voluntary donations to any or all of the following groups, APFA (in support of new mom’s in need), the Parkland Food Bank, and the Pet Food Bank of Parkland County. Representatives from APFA, and the Pet Food Bank will be present to answer any questions about the role they play to support the community. They hope to have the Mayor of Stony Plain stop by and we will be offering everyone an opportunity to plant a seed, or create a cookbook to be donated to the Parkland Food Bank and distributed to their families.
