    LOTTERY PROCESS AT SVEND HANSEN SCHOOL FOR 2024-2025

    To help address enrolment growth and space shortages, Svend Hansen School has a lottery process for new students enrolling for the 2024–25 school year. The lottery only impacts new resident students living in the designated attendance area who wish to enrol in a grade that does not have space in planned classes. Students who are currently enrolled at Svend Hansen or who wish to enrol in a grade with space in planned classes, are not impacted. 

    REGISTERING AT AN OVERFLOW DESIGNATED SCHOOL OR OTHER DIVISION SCHOOL

    Svend Hansen will help resident families who were not selected in the lottery process to register at their overflow designated school, Weinlos School for Kindergarten to grade 6 and Kate Chegwin School for grades 7 to 9. If families choose to go to another Edmonton Public school, they will need to call or email their preferred school to see if there is space in planned classes.

    Siblings will also be able to attend the overflow designated school, but if families choose to go to another Division school with space in planned classes, siblings are not guaranteed to attend. 

    REGISTRATION AFTER MARCH 22

    New resident students who newly move into a Level 3 school’s attendance area for the 2024–25 school year after pre-enrolment closes on March 22 can be added to the bottom of the callback list. Students can attend their overflow designated school, another Edmonton Public school with space in planned classes, or remain at their current school, if applicable.

    TRANSPORTATION TO OVERFLOW DESIGNATED SCHOOLS

    Yellow bus service to Weinlos will be available for eligible students. Bus fees will apply.

Principal's Message

Welcome Svend Hansen School families and supporters,

Where did the summer go! I trust you have all had some quality family and friend time to connect through important and meaningful trips and events. Summer always goes by fast and my wish for all of us is that we have had time for quality time together with our loved ones. My summer was wonderful and the weather cooperated nicely to spend many hours outside.  

The 2023-24 school year will see the Svend Hansen School Plan  become the foundation of our work in the school community.  The plan was co-created throughout the 2022-23 school year and aligns with the Vision Mission Values Division Priorities of Edmonton Public Schools. Parents and families are partners in education as we work together to ensure our children receive the best possible public education experience. I am communicating this important information with you as our children begin the school year. 

Please take the time to read the information and contact the school if you need any clarity (587-489-4724). Please make sure you read and access all the information being posted on Schoolzone and check back frequently. Our team will be working hard to share important information daily.   

Looking forward to the school year ahead as we together support your children.

~ Christina Jones, BPE, BEd, MEd

Principal, Svend Hansen School
