Foothills School Division Okotoks Boundary Review


Be advised an attendance boundary review is underway for all Okotoks area elementary and junior high schools.  We anticipate changes will be made to our existing boundaries as we prepare to open Meadow Ridge School in September of 2019.  We are unable to confirm which school location your child will attend for the 2019-2020 school year until boundaries are finalized in the spring of 2019.

FSD selects attendance areas that allow as many students as possible to attend a school close to home.  We do our best to keep families and communities together.  Careful consideration is given to ensure the school doesn’t fill up too quickly while a community is still growing.  The school will carefully manage enrolment to make sure there’s room for new students who move into the school’s attendance area.

We appreciate your input and the opportunity to openly communicate our process and timelines with you.
