School Registration for 2020-2021
We are now only accepting new registrations in grades 4 and 5. All other new registrations will be directed to our over-flow school, Donald R. Getty School (Updated September 8, 2020).
Dr. Lila Fahlman School serves the attendance area of Allard and Callaghan neighbourhoods only.
Our school is implementing a lottery process for new students enrolling at our school for the 2020-21 school year. This only impacts new students wishing to attend the school and does not impact students currently at our school.
Each grade will have a cap for the number of classes for all grade levels. If the number of new students who want to enrol exceeds available spaces, a lottery process will be used.
LOTTERY PROCESS ONCE PRE-ENROLMENT CLOSES
After pre-enrolment closes on April 15, families will:
- receive a call from the school about the lottery results by April 23,
- be able to attend their overflow designated school, another school with space, or remain at their current school. Siblings may also enrol at the overflow school, and
- request to be placed on a callback list if spaces open before September 30, 2020. Students must be enrolled at a Division school for the 2020-21 school year to stay on the callback list.
REGISTERING AT AN OVERFLOW DESIGNATED SCHOOL OR SCHOOL OF CHOICE
Our school will help families register at their overflow designated school, Donald R Getty School. If families are choosing to go to another Division school, they will need to call or email their preferred school to see if there is space.
Siblings will also be able to attend the overflow designated school, but if families choose to go to another school with space, siblings are not guaranteed to attend.
REGISTRATION AFTER APRIL 15
- Students who move into the attendance area between April and June will be asked to remain with their current school for the remainder of the 2019–20 school year because schools are closed.
- New students to the Division who register for the 2020–21 school year after pre-enrolment closes on April 15 can be added to the bottom of the callback list of classes which are currently full. They can attend our overflow designated school, another school with space, or remain at their current school. We are currently full in Kindergarten, Grades 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, and 9 (Updated September 8, 2020). Any registrations for grades that are now full, will be added to the bottom of our callback lists in case we have students move. We are still accepting new registrations for grades 4 aqnd 5 only.
- Schools with a lottery will not accept registrations for the 2020-21 school year from new families moving into the attendance area if the student is not considered a resident* of Edmonton Public Schools.
- * A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent living in Edmonton who is not declared Roman Catholic on the student registration form. All other students are considered non-resident students.
TRANSPORTATION TO OVERFLOW DESIGNATED SCHOOLS
- Yellow bus service to the overflow designated school will be available for eligible students. Bus fees will apply.
- Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) is the preferred transportation method for junior high students; however, if ETS does not meet Division standards, eligible students attending their designated school may be able to apply for yellow bus service. Bus fees will apply.
More information about the lottery process is available on the Edmonton Public Schools website.If you have any other questions, please contact our school office at 587-489-4710
NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION

Our school will no longer accept printed registrations. Do not drop off student registration forms at the school.

The intake lottery will take place the week of April 20 and those applicants not successful will be directed to our overflow school, Donald R. Getty School for K to 9. 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.
