To register a student for the 2022 - 2023 school year please click here.

Nuts, Sesame, Scents

Please do not bring nut (peanuts, tree nuts) or sesame (includes hummus which is made from sesame seeds) products into our school.
There are students and staff at BA who have LIFE THREATENING ALLERGIES to these foods. As well, be aware that we are a scent "sensitive" property as we have staff and students with severe scent sensitivities.

School Start Time

Instruction starts sharply at 8:25am for all students.
We ask that students arrive no later than 8:20am so they have plenty of time to get prepared for their morning lessons. Students are welcome to enter the school at 8:05am.

Happy Holiday's From Bluenose Academy

Welcome Ms. Shaw

Bluenose Academy students and staff would like to welcome Ms. Cathy Shaw to our staff as our new Vice-Principal. Ms. Shaw is looking forward to meeting all staff, students, and the school community. Let's extend her a warm Seahawk welcome!


Parents/Guardians are not permitted to PARK & EXIT THEIR CARS in the Drop-off Loop in front of the school during arrival and dismissal times.

Also note: This area is for Pr - 2 Student Drop-off ONLY. Parents/Guardians dropping off students in higher grades are to do so from the community center parking lot.

Parents/Guardians using the Parent Drop-Off Loop are NOT TO EXIT THEIR CARS. Please remain in your car at all times. A staff member will help with opening the door to assist children out of vehicles. The drop-off loop is to be a steady flow... no parked/unattended cars. This is to avoid congestion of vehicles which could create a dangerous environment for traffic on Green Street. Please ensure you follow this process. Your safety, our student's safety and the safety of the general public are counting on this. (If you are a parent/guardian of a Pr-2 student and you want to walk your child to or meet them at the front doors, please go to the community centre, park there and walk over.)

DOG OWNERS: Dogs are not permitted on school grounds. Please do not bring them with you for student drop-off or pick-up. We have several children who have very real fears of dogs and seeing them on site creates unnecessary stress and anxiety for them. Thank you in advance for being respectful of our students, their safety and needs.
