     Please see our School Supply List for 2024-2025. Students should have items for the first day of school.

    Please note that the Grade 7 Orientation will be held on Tuesday, August 27, 2024, from 9:00 am until 11:00 am. All new to VB students and parents invited to attend. You will meet some of our teachers, learn a little bit about our school and what to expect on the first day of school, find your classrooms without other students in the school, find your locker, practice your combination lock, and basically have a chance to start to get settled with only Grade 7s and new students in the building.
    ▪ A parent from each family is also invited to attend if possible. We will have a separate parent information session for you which will cover some basic information about our school as well as provide parents with a chance to ask questions about junior high. Please read Orientation Letter 2024-2025 to learn more. We look forward to meeting all our new students!


    For the 2024 - 2025 school year, Vernon Barford School is now full in all planned classes in Grades 7 to 9 in the Regular and Gifted and Talented programs.

    For the regular program, we will only accept resident students in Grades 7 to 9 whose parent(s)/legal guardian(s) have newly
    moved into the school’s attendance area. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools who is not Roman Catholic has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton.

    Non-resident students may enroll in another division school with space in planned classes.

    New to the Division?
    Students new to Edmonton Public Schools must submit a completed Student Registration form found on the EPSB New Student Registration page. 

    Supporting Documentation for registration:

    • Student’s Canadian Birth Certificate with parents’ names printed on it (or proof of eligibility to attend school in Canada, for example, Canadian Passport/PR Card/Citizenship Card or Certificate WITH Non-Canadian Birth Certificate if the student was born outside Canada), AND
    • Minimum of five documents from the following list for proof of residence address:
      • Parent’s Driver’s License
      • Utility Bills for the residence – gas, water and power
      • Government-issued documents
      • Car/Property/Tenancy Insurance
      • Mortgage document

    Please note that the above documents must show the guardian(s) name and consistent mailing/service address within the school attendance boundaries.  A rental agreement does not qualify as valid proof of residence.

    Please check our current Primary Boundary Maps to see if you reside in our boundaries. 


    Update your student’s address with the school office before pre-enrolling in SchoolZone.
