Westside elementary school boundaries now finalized for 2017/2018

Lethbridge School District No. 51 has finalized the new westside elementary school boundaries.

The boundaries have been adjusted in anticipation of the opening of Coalbanks Elementary School for the 2017/2018 school year. The new school, currently under construction, is located at 230 Coalbanks Boulevard West. 

Students who live west of Metis Trail will be within the boundary for Coalbanks Elementary School when it opens in 2017/2018. The boundaries for all four westside elementary school can be viewed above.

Also for 2017/2018, Nicholas Sheran Community School will feature a French Immersion program. Students who live 2.4 kilometres or further from Nicholas Sheran Community School will be eligible for transportation from any area on the westside to attend French Immersion at Nicholas Sheran.

A Spanish Bilingual program has also been approved for Coalbanks in 2017/2018. Only students who live within the Coalbanks Elementary School boundary, those who live beyond 2.4 kilometres away from the school, will qualify for bussing. Those living outside the boundary, who wish to have their students attend Coalbanks Elementary School for the Spanish Bilingual Program, will need to provide their own transportation to and from the school.
