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.

Historical Information:  Pre-enrolment for the 2023-24 School Year (closed April 14th, 2023)

To help address enrolment growth and space shortages, Svend Hansen has a lottery process for new students enrolling for the 2023–24 school year. The lottery only impacts new resident students within the 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. 

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


After pre-enrolment closes at 4 p.m. on April 14, families of resident students will:

  • receive a call from the school about the lottery results by April 24;

  • 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 2023. Students MUST be enrolled in a Division school for the 2023–24 school year to stay on the callback list beyond the first day of 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. 


New resident* students to the Division who register for the 2023–24 school year after pre-enrolment closes on April 14 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.


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.

Students who require yellow bus service must apply before June 1, 2023. Information for new and current riders and application forms can be found on the Applying for Yellow Bus Service page on epsb.ca.
