    New Student Registration and Pre-Enrollment

    Come check out our IN-PERSON OPEN HOUSE - March 8, 6:00 - 7:30pm. 


    New Student Registration

    Hardisty School is looing forward to seeing you here for the 2023-2024 school year!  Looking to register with us?  See the information below to help you out!

    If you are registering for Kindergarten or if you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online



    Sign in to SchoolZone between 9 a.m. on March 6th  and 4 p.m. on April 14, 2023 to select your child’s preferred school for the 2023/24 school year. 

    When you sign in to your parent SchoolZone account on your computer, tablet or smartphone:

    • choose the “Next Year” tab
    • select the name of the child you are pre-enrolling
    • follow the instructions to select your child’s preferred school for next year

    Each spring, parents across the Division pre-enrol to tell us the school they’d like their child to attend next year. We ask all families to pre-enrol, even if their child is continuing at the same school. Knowing how many students to expect helps schools prepare to welcome them in September.

    Online learning available at Argyll Centre

    Families of Grade 1–12 students who would like their child to learn online in 2023–24 can register or pre-enrol at Argyll Centre. Online learning will not be available at other Division schools. Families who choose Argyll Centre will not be connected to their current or designated school and may not be guaranteed a space there the following year.


    Kindergarten registration begins on February 1, 2023. Families register online for the 2023-24 school year. Learn more about Kindergarten registration on epsb.ca.

    Kindergarten registrations are not based on a first-come, first-served basis. Schools can only assign students to classes after pre-enrolment closes on April 14.

    When assigning students, the principal is responsible for organizing classes to meet the needs of all students within the school.

    On your registration form, parents are asked to indicate either Regular or Logos Kindergarten for students registering in Kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year.

    Kindergarten age 

    Children who are five years old on or before December 31, 2023 may register in Kindergarten for the 2023-24 school year. The Alberta government changed the entry age for students registering in Kindergarten, beginning in 2020-21.

 Welcome to the Hardisty Website!

As a staff, we are committed to serving our students and their families to the best of our abilities. Our goal is to create a community where:

  • we see everyone as a learner - children and adults alike
  • we face challenges by working to support our students and engage them in building the skills they need to succeed
  • we engage in clear and consistant communication with home, not only to inform, but also to seek input into how we can best meet the needs of our students
  • we are committed to continuous improvement in order to provide the highest quality education to our students and most effective services to our families

3 R’s

At Hardisty, our 3R’s - Respect, Responsibility, Relationships are front and center in our minds and hearts. You will see this commitment, not only in the halls on posters, but in our daily work. It is not simply an expectation for students but it serves as a basis for our decision making and how we interact as a school community.   Students, staff and parents are encouraged to show respect regardless of the actions of others, take responsibility for the learning and actions and to work to build relationships that create a positive, supportive and caring learning environment for all.  


We are home to 5 Division Programs that support the communities we serve.  There are two K - 9 programs:

Community: This program serves families in the greater Hardisty are for regular Kindergarten to Grade 9 programming.  We are open to registration for any students within our attendance area and beyond.

Logos Christian:  This EPSB  alternative program is a non-denominational, faith-based program that incorporates Christian teachings into the Alberta Program of Studies.  The program is open to students throughout the city and is served by a designated Transportation Service Area for all grades.  The program features daily devotions and prayer in every classroom, biblical verse memorization, monthly chapels and worship for all students and several special events for students such as City Wide Chapel and Faith Day.  There is no fee to attend this program and it is supported by the Logos Society of Edmonton.  Please check their website at christian program.ca.
