Public Advisory: Kinderstart/Kindergarten Registration to Reopen

Today (Wednesday, June 10), the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District is
reopening the online registration process for Kinderstart 2020-21/Kindergarten 2021-22.
Registration will remain open throughout the summer, until August 31, 2020.
This action is being taken as fewer families than expected took advantage of the annual
registration process held last month, likely because of circumstances surrounding the ongoing
public health emergency.
Families whose child will turn 5 years old on or before December 31, 2021 are encouraged to
avail of this opportunity to register, if they have not already done so.
Meanwhile, during a typical year, families would confirm their addresses in-person at their
zoned school to complete the registration process. However, given the current public health
emergency, all families will be contacted by their registered school in the fall
(September/October) to make arrangements to verify registration information (e.g., address,
MCP number). Confirmation of placement in Early French Immersion will also occur at that time.
Complete registration information is available on the District’s website or directly at:
https://www.nlesd.ca/families/kindergartenregistration.jsp
The District continues to encourage safety throughout the summer and urges communities to
follow the latest advice from public health authorities.

Google Meet — Privacy Guidelines for Teachers and Families (April 8, 2020)

Please find the memo from NLESD here

Guidelines for Families to Help Protect Student and Family Privacy:

Video meetings between teachers and students are extensions of the classroom and regular

classroom rules apply. While we are connecting with students in a virtual environment, everyone

has a responsibility to ensure the protection of privacy. Please strictly adhere to the following

guidelines:

● Teachers will invite students to participate in virtual meetings by sharing a meeting URL

or unique nickname through Gmail or Google Classroom. To ensure that only invited

guests have access to the session, please do not share this meeting information

publicly.

● The meeting will show the names and faces of student participants. To ensure that

identities are kept private, please do not post any photos or videos of your child’s virtual

meetings to social media if other student faces or names are shown.

● Discuss ways you can protect the privacy of members of your household, such as

physically locating in one spot without background activity.
