Opening of Schools 2014 - 2015

Welcome back to all students and families from Grand Manan to Sussex Corner for the new school year!

All Kindergarten children will enter school through a staggered entry process on September 2nd and 3rd, 2014 with half of the students attending each day.  All Kindergarten children will attend together on September 4thSchools will communicate to families their scheduled time of entry.

All grades 1-5 students will begin classes on September 2nd.

For all middle and high school students, there will be a ‘transition day’ with only grades 6 and 9 attending on September 2nd.  Some exceptions to this are:  Grades K-8 schools will not have a grade 6 transition day so all students will attend on September 2nd.  Grades 6-12 schools will not have a grade 9 transition day, and in grades K-12 schools there will not be a grade 6 or 9 transition day.  The transition day is intended for students who will be starting middle or high school in a different building.  If you are unsure, please call your school the week before school begins or check the school website.

For high schools in Saint John (Saint John High School, Simonds, St. Malachy’s and Harbour View) only the grade 9 students will attend on September 2nd, grades 10-12 students attend on September 3rd , and all grades 9-12 students attend on September 4th.

Teachers and school administrators will be involved in meetings and professional learning activities the week of August 25th-28th.  The complete 2014-15 school calendar can be found on our website


Students should be at their bus stop five minutes before the scheduled time.  It is normal for bus schedules and stops to be adjusted during the first few days of operation.  Your patience in this regard is appreciated.

Hampton and Saint John Education Centres: The District will send home letters with busing arrangements for all Kindergarten children by the last week of August. 

Busing information can be obtained on the Anglophone South website: located under “Busing”.  If busing is not available via the website please contact your school of residence after August 18th and someone will be able to assist you.

Saint John Education Centre (High Schools): Students that are eligible to travel on Saint John Transit will have their Student Bus Passes available at school on the first day of class.  Students must sign for a pass and assume responsibility for it.  Passes are not available at the Centre office. 

Best wishes to all students and staff for a happy and safe new year!
