Pre-Primary and Primary Registration Jan. 11-15

Registration for 2021-22

Please note that families can register their child for school (Pre-Primary to Grade 12) at any time.

This year registration will looka little different.  To limit non-essential visitors, we encourage families to register using the following steps:

  • Please complete all sections of the online registration form OR if you are planning to register your child at Aspotogan Consolidated Elementary School please select the ACES registration form and email it to If you do it this way, it will be the only form you have to complete.
  • You must provide proof of residence (power or water bill), Nova Scotia Health Card and your child’s birth certificate. Please either upload these documents through the online form OR include as an attachment with the email to the school. If either of these options do not work for you, please bring a copy to SSRCE regional office at your earliest convenience or to your home school on the first day of the 2021 school year.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, registrations will be done electronically following the process outlined above.
