Registration 2024-25

Registration opens on February 1, 2024. All new registrations, including Kindergarten should be done online. Children who are five years old on or before December 31, 2024 may register in Kindergarten for the 2024-25 school year. Learn more about kindergarten registration.

If your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, you can register for school online. Visit the Division website to learn how to register for school.

Dr. Lila Fahlman School serves the attendance area of Allard and Callaghan neighbourhoods only. 

We will continue to have a lottery process in place for new resident attendance area students enrolling at the school for the 2024–25 school year. This will not impact current students who attend the school.

The school will not accept new registrations from families in the attendance area if the student is not a resident of Edmonton Public Schools. In most cases, a resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic.


Resident students who aren’t selected through the lottery process can attend the overflow designated school, Johnny Bright School, a Division school with space in planned classes, or remain at their current school, if applicable.

Each grade will have a limit for the number of classes for all grade levels. If the number of new students enrolling exceeds available space a lottery process will be used.

Siblings of Current Students Attending Our School

New resident students in the attendance area with a sibling returning to the school next year will get priority, but are not guaranteed to attend.

Dr. Lila Fahlman Registration for 2023-24

We are currently full in all planned classes for Kindergarten, grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 for the 2023-24 school year.  If you have recently moved into our neighbourhood, please contact Dr. Lila Fahlman School first at 587-489-4710. 

Transportation to Overflow Designated Schools

Yellow bus service to Johnny Bright School will be available for eligible students. Bus fees will apply.

Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) is the preferred transportation method for junior high and high school students; however, if if ETS does not meet Division standards, eligible students attending their overflow designated school may be able to apply for yellow bus service. Bus fees will apply.

Students who require yellow bus service must apply before June 1, 2024. Information for new and current riders and application forms can be found on the Applying for Yellow Bus Service page on epsb.ca.
