Planning Ahead: Back to School Registration + 3 Tips for a Smooth Transition Back to School


The month of August can bring some additional stress for young families looking to move and secure a closing date before the first day of school.

“I’m new to the area where and when do I register my child for school?”

All school registration can be completed online through the Simcoe County District School Board website. Click the link below to be redirected to the appropriate registration forms:
Not sure the school boundary in your area? Click here to determine the appropriate school. This is an excellent tool for families when researching homes to purchase as you can easily determine school boundaries and whether the home is within walking distance or if bussing will be required.

3 Tips to Help You Take the Stress Out of Back To School: Bussing, Child Care and PA Days

1.  Transportation.

“Will my child be bussed to school?”
The Simcoe Board has created a Bus Planner tool to help determine whether or not your child requires bus transportation. Simply click here to be redirected. You will be prompted for your street number, street name, city and school board. Have more questions about bussing? Click here to check out the Simcoe County Student Transportation Consortium FAQ page.

2.    Arranging Before/After School Care

“Does the school offer on-site before and after school care?”
More and more schools are setting space aside for on-site before and after school care programs for parents. Click here to review the Simcoe County District School Board’s comprehensive list of 2018-2019 Before/After Child Care.

3.     Plan Ahead for PA Days with the 2018/2019 Simcoe County District School Board Calendar 

“Another PA day?”
All parents have been here at one time or another when just as you’re settling in for some quality family time, your child announces that tomorrow is a PA day. Getting blindsided by a PA day isn’t fun and leaves many parents scrambling for additional care. Take the stress out of PA days by marking them ahead and setting notifications in your calendar.
