Ferris Elementary School


School Boundary Proposed Changes


School Announcement - Email

October 21, 2019


Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Richmond School District has proposed some school boundary revisions that may affect Ferris Elementary School.  The purpose of a school boundary revision is to reflect the regional strategy contained in the Long Range Facilities Plan. Please see the attached document for detailed information on the proposed school boundary revision.

It is important to note that families that have a child currently attending Ferris Schoolwill:

  • not be affected by the boundary revision, 
  • have the choice to remain in their current catchment or transfer to their newly proposed catchment, 
  • have the choice to enrol siblings in their current catchment or their newly proposed catchment. 

Who is affected?

As of September 2020, all newstudents living in an adjusted catchment area will be part of the newly formed catchment.

If you have any feedback, please respond by November 15, 2019 by providing your comments on the Let’s Talk website https://bit.ly/2MiMwir or by submitting written feedback to the school office. All comments will be considered prior to the Board of Education making a decision on the proposed boundary revisions on December 11, 2019.



Mrs. D. Steele, Principal
