    Svend Hansen School is full in all planned classes in the Regular program. We will no longer be accepting any students in those grades. Any new resident students who newly move into Svend Hansen's attendance area are guaranteed a space at one of our overflow schools or they may attend a school with space in planned classes. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes.

    If you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.


    Our school 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, or Kate Chegwin for grade 7-9. If families choose 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.



    Yellow bus service to  Weinlos School for kindergarten to grade 6, or Kate Chegwin for grade 7-9, 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 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, 2022. Information for new and current riders and application forms can be found on the Applying for Yellow Bus Service page on epsb.ca. 



    More information about the lottery process is available on epsb.ca. If you have any other questions, please contact our school office at 587-489-4724 .

Principal's Message

August 31, 2022

Welcome Svend Hansen School families and supporters,

I hope this communication finds you well. 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 enjoying our summer weather. 


As the incoming principal, I am so very grateful for Mr. Ron Thompson and the leadership he provided for a new school community. He has left an important legacy of work which we are all the beneficiaries of - students, staff, families, community. Thank you Ron. 

I am communicating important information with you as you get ready to send your children to school tomorrow. 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
