D.W. Poppy Secondary will begin accepting new registrations on Monday January 15 for students wishing to enroll in grades 9 to 12 for the 2018/19 school year and for any students wishing to enroll in grade 8 who do not currently attend one of our elementary feeder schools. We will be accepting registrations for both students who live in our catchment area and out-of-catchment students. All registrations must have all of the required paperwork in order for them to be considered complete and in order for students to be placed on our waiting list. In catchment students MUST register before March 31 to be guaranteed a spot at Poppy for 2018/19. In catchment students who register after March 31 will be placed on a waiting list. May 31 is the last day we will accept out of catchment registrations – please register as soon as possible. All registrations must include the following documentation in order to be considered complete:
- Completed District Registration Form Student Registration Package
- Copy of student’s birth certificate or passport
- Proof of address in the form of a current utility bill
- A copy of the student’s most recent report card
- Proof of parent’s citizenship
- A signed cross-boundary form for out-of-catchment students Cross Boundary Request Form
Once registrants have all the required paperwork, it should be dropped off at the main office during office hours (7:45 am to 3:30 pm). In-catchment students will be processed in late February and early March and will be contacted to set-up an appointment to meet with one of our counsellors prior to or immediately after spring break. Out-of-catchment students will be added to the out-of-catchment waiting list on a first-come, first-serve basis starting on January 15. Out-of-catchment registrants WILL NOT be contacted until the beginning of June at the earliest and should be registering in their catchment or current school as there is no guarantee that we will be able to take any out-of-catchment students for the 2018-19 school year.
If you have any questions about the registration process, please contact the school at 604-530-2151.
Additional registration documents such as our course planning guide and course selection forms are available under the ‘Course Planning’ tab in the ‘Student Life’ section of our website.
