Welcome to Athlone Elementary School.

WELCOME! Athlone is located in the Athlone Community and includes the Dunvegen Community to the west of the school. Our school is a working partnership between students, staff, parents, and the community. We are a student-centred school community committed to strong educational programs delivered in a supportive, nurturing, and safe environment. We believe that our school-wide focus on literacy in all subject areas will provide a strong foundation for students to attain their personal optimum levels of achievement across the curriculum.

We offer three educational programs at Athlone: Full Day KindergartenRegular Grade 1 - 6, and Behavior and Learning Assistance Program

Pre-enrol in SchoolZone 

Get ready for the 2022-23 school year! Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between March 8 and April 14 to select your child’s preferred school for next year. If you're interested in online learning pre-enrol at Argyll Centre.

Whether your child is staying at the same school or changing schools, all students need to pre-enrol. Knowing how many students to expect helps schools prepare to welcome them in September.

 If you need help, contact the school or read the pre-enrolment handout


Update your child’s current address with the school office before pre-enrolling in SchoolZone. 

New to the Division?
Instead of using SchoolZone, students who are new to Edmonton Public Schools need to submit a completed Student Registration form. Find the form and list of supporting documents you need to provide. 

Update for our school community 

Athlone School is temporarily closed for repairs. Students and staff have relocated to Kensington School for the remainder of the 2021–22 school year. 

Construction will begin in June and continue throughout the summer break. We plan to reopen Athlone School on September 1, 2022, in time to welcome students back for the first day of the 2022–23 school year.

Students who normally walk to Athlone School

Students who don’t normally take the bus and require transportation to and from Kensington School will be picked up and dropped off daily at Athlone School. Athlone staff will be at Athlone School to help students get on and off the bus safely and to ride the shuttle with students as they get used to their new routines.

  • Pick up: Students will need to be at Athlone School by 8:15 a.m. for transportation to Kensington School.
  • Drop off: Students will be dropped off at approximately 3:40 p.m. at Athlone School, and at approximately 12:25 p.m. for early dismissal on Thursdays.

Principal's Message

On behalf of the staff at Athlone School, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all students and their families. 

I am excited to join the Athlone school community as principal for the 2021-2022 school year, and look forward to working and learning together, as I get to know each and every student, staff member and family.

 At Athlone school we focus on “Learners as leaders”, and strive to build leaders, one child at a time.  Our students work together as learners to build and gain self-confidence while developing skills in; leadership, accountability, problem-solving, and effective communication. 

We work each day to uphold Edmonton Public Schools Vision of: “Success, one student at time”.  

In this regard we focus on literacy and numeracy skills; while meeting each and every student where they are at. School staff provide engaging high quality learning opportunities that are supported by strong teaching practices.   

 Parent engagement in their child’s learning is welcomed, and encouraged and we look forward to working with families to enhance their childs elementary school experience.  

The A-team works alongside parents and it’s many community partners towards fostering success for all.  Together is better! 

Yours in partnership,


Janette Pethick, Principal
