Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools has decided on which neighbourhood children will have the opportunity to go to their newest school.

Trustees approved on Tuesday the attendance boundaries for Fr. Henri Voisin School set to open September 2014 in Clearview Ridge.

The school will serve pre-kindergarten to Grade 5 students in Rosedale, Clearview, Clearview Ridge, Timberlands, Garden Heights, as well as students living north of 39th Street in Deer Park.

Students living in Vanier Woods will become part of Holy Family School boundaries after being within St. Elizabeth Seton school boundaries.

Fr. Henri Voisin School will have space for 300 students in 2014, with the capacity to expand to 500. Based on current projections, the school is expected to open with about 200 students.

“The board consulted with its stakeholders and believes that the new boundaries well serve students and their families well,” said board chairwoman Adriana LaGrange in a news release.

Middle school and high school boundaries will remain the same.

The board accepted administration’s recommendation to allow Grade 5 students who wish to remain in their current school in September 2014 to do so. Students will receive transportation.

“The Grade 5 students in 2014 will be in their last year of elementary school and the board felt it was very important for them to finish their elementary education together without the added stress of changing schools two years in a row.”

All other students living within the new boundaries in 2014 will attend the new school.

This will affect some students enrolled at Holy Family School, Maryview School and St. Elizabeth Seton School.

Parents of children affected by the new boundaries will soon be notifed by letter.
