Kindergarten Registration 

Are you interested in  your child  learning another language? Join us, for our German Language Program (K-6).  No German background is necessary.

Come to Mills Haven School to celebrate German language and culture!

To be eligible to attend kindergarten in the 2018-19 school year, your child must turn five years old on or before Dec. 31, 2018.  The German program will run using the Group A Kindergarten Calendar, English programs will use both A and B calendars.

Kindergarten Calendars

Group A Kindergarten students attend school on Mondays, Wednesdays and every first and third Friday.

Group B Kindergarten students attend school on Tuesdays, Thursdays and every second and fourth Friday.

All families registering their children for kindergarten in 2019-20 must complete the New Student Registration Form. For tips on filling out the form, refer to How to Register a New Student.

Requesting to attend a non-designated school? (formerly boundary exemption request process)
Kindergarten students may request to attend a non-designated school by indicating their preference on the New Student Registration Form.

Hot Lunches/Milk Program at Mills Haven

Please go to to order hot lunches for your children. Our school access code is MHHL. Just remember menus will open on the 1st of every month and close at midnight on the 15th of the month, except for September that date will be announced.


Safety First – No drop offs in the bus zone

On days where the weather is inclement, there is the temptation to drop off your children in the bus zone. Please use the drop off zone by the playground. It is difficult for the buses to pull into the bus zones and it is hazardous to our children who are trying to disembark from the buses. We have 333 families that come to Mills Haven School. If all parents chose to drop off their children in the bus zone there would be chaos. Bylaw may be contacted if individuals still chose to use the bus zone as a drop off zone. Thank you to all the parents who drop off students in the designated areas.

Still have questions about school startup?

Contact the EIPS Central Services office at 780-464-3477 or visit for more information about back to school.

We look forward to a great year ahead and seeing all of our students back on September 3!
