Parents/Guardians of Muir Lake Students
Beginning April 1, 2018 registration for the 2018-2019 school year will be conducted exclusively online. ALL parents/guardians MUST select from the following options to begin registering your child(ren) for school and/or busing with Parkland School Division for the upcoming school year.
There are two online forms for the 2018-2019 school year. Parents will be either filling out the ‘New Student Form’ or the ‘Returning Student Form’ via the online registration software PowerRegistration.
A New Student is one who has never attended a Parkland School Division school or a student attending a non-Parkland School Division school who has never rode on a Parkland School Division bus before (e.g. students entering Kindergarten, new residents).
Returning PSD families will receive an email directly from central office which will contain a hyperlink for the parents to launch into the process.
This email will be coming from “PowerSchool Registration Support” <firstname.lastname@example.org>
It’s an easy process for parents/guardians:
- Make sure you have a Power School Parent Portal. If you have not already created one or need assistance then please contact the Muir Lake School Office.
- Click on the hyperlink in the email that will be sent April 1st and follow the instructions.
This process will pre-populate the fields on the PowerRegistration form with all the information we currently have on file in PowerSchool. This will give parents/guardians the chance to confirm the information is accurate or to make changes. This process will need to be done for EACH child attending a PSD school OR riding a PSD bus.
While filling in the online registration form parents/guardians will be asked if they require bussing for their child(ren) for the 2018-2019 school year. Please be sure to check off the appropriate answer otherwise bussing will not be provided.
In order for your child to have his/her bus pass for the first day of school (Tuesday, September 4, 2018), bus pass applications must be received no later than 4:30pm on Friday, June 29, 2018 to be included in the routing process. Payment arrangements must be received through PSD’s online payment system (Acorn) or in the Division Office on or before Friday, August 10, 2018 to be eligible to ride the bus the first day of school. Any applications received after the application deadline may not be processed in time for the first day of school. If your child does not have a valid bus pass for the 2018-2019 school year, he/she will not be able to ride the bus.
It is imperative that parents/guardians complete this registration/data verification process before the June 29th deadline. Links to both the PowerSchool Parent Portal and the Online PowerRegistration are available on the PSD 70 Website at http://www.psd70.ab.ca as well as the Muir Lake School Website at http://muirlake.psd70.ab.ca. Instructions and a tutorial video are also available there.
Should you have any questions or require any assistance please do not hesitate to contact the school office at 780-963-3535 or email us at email@example.com.
We thank you in advance for your attention to this matter and for your co-operation in getting this process completed BEFORE June 29th 2018.

Parkland School Division is changing the way families sign up for Transportation Services. For the 2017 – 2018 school year, we require ALL families to register in advance online starting Monday, June 5th. This includes riders whose Transportation Fees will be $0. Details and links will be shared with parents via email. The good news is, once parents/guardians register online in advance, long line-ups for bus pass sales at the Centre for Education in the fall can be completely avoided.
For the 2017-2018 school year, in order to ensure transportation on the first day of school, applications must be submitted before July 15th, 2017.
Routes and stop locations will be created from application forms received before the July 15th deadline. Applications will continue to be processed throughout the summer; however families are encouraged to guarantee their spots as some routes are currently at or near capacity.
For more information, contact:
