For the 2023 - 2024 school year, Svend Hansen School is full in planned classes from Kindergarten to Grade 8 in the regular program. Currently, we are only accepting resident attendance area students in Grades 9. 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 a new resident attendance area student in Kindergarten to Grade 6, please contact the school to learn about your options.
If you are registering for Kindergarten or are new to Edmonton Public Schools, please register online.

LOTTERY PROCESS AT SVEND HANSEN SCHOOL
Svend Hansen School 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 schools, Weinlos School for Kindergarten to grade 6 and Kate Chegwin School for grades 7 to 9, a Division school with space in planned classes, or remain at their current school, if applicable.
Siblings of current students attending Svend Hansen School
New resident students in the attendance area who have a sibling returning to the school next year will get priority, but are not guaranteed to attend.
More information about the lottery process
Watch the Growth Control Model video for an overview of the lottery process. You can also read more about the lottery process on the Edmonton Public Schools website. If you have any other questions, please contact the school at 587-489-4724.
LOTTERY PROCESS ONCE PRE-ENROLMENT CLOSES
After pre-enrolment closes at 4 p.m. on March 22, families of resident students will:
- receive a call from the school about the lottery results by April 12;
- be able to attend their overflow designated school or choose to enrol at another Division school with space. Siblings may also enrol at the overflow designated school, and
- request to be placed on a callback list if spaces open before the last day of school in September 2024. Students MUST be enrolled in a Division school for the 2024-2025 school year to stay on the callback list beyond the first day of school.
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 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 MARCH 22
New resident* students to the Division who register 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 school with space, or remain at their current school, if applicable.
*A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic.
TRANSPORTATION TO OVERFLOW DESIGNATED SCHOOLS
Yellow bus service to Weinlos 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.
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.
