Have a safe & fun filled summer! (& some helpful information)

The school is closed for the summer! Have a great time away.

If you would like to support New Norway School's International Travel Club over the summer, please bring your cans & bottles to the New Norway Bottle Depot!  

First day of school for Grades 1 - 12 is Tuesday September 3rd. Kindergarten will have a staggered start on Tuesday, September 10th, with half of the class starting in the morning and half in the afternoon. Mrs. Gutmann will send a parent letter home with more information prior to their start date. Classes start at 8:40. Please see here for updated bell times. 

Bus transportation next school year: if you are an existing 2024-2025 bus student, you will automatically be assigned a route. If you are a new student (or returning after being away from NNS last year), you will have to apply for transportation at this link. Please note that we are all RURAL bus students at NNS.

  • Deadline for transportation applications is June 27, 2024. Applications received after this time may not be processed until after school has started.
  • One transportation form, per student who requires transportation, should be filled out. In cases of joint custody, please fill out only ONE application per student to include both households. 
  • Rural bussing families will hear directly from their bus driver in mid-August regarding stop times

Battle River School Division is open in the summer; their website is brsd.ab.ca and their phone number is 780-672-6131.

There will be someone in the NNS School office after August 27th.

If calling to register your son or daughter for September 3rd, please go online to brsd.ab.ca and register them. Information on navigating the PowerSchool tool is linked here.  Transportation should also be arranged (see paragraph above).

Supply lists for next year's school supplies can be found at the Families tab of this website. The Parent Council is doing an (optional) fundraiser with SchoolStart.ca and offering bundled supplies delivered to your home over the summer.  That company offers an Early Order Prize Draw for orders placed by July 18th. Or you can buy your own school supplies at a local vendor.

We look forward to seeing you all in September!
