Squamish Catchment Boundary Change

In June 2021, the Board approved changes to catchment boundaries, resulting in Northyards and Loggers Lane at Finch Drive falling within the Mamquam Elementary catchment boundaries and Tantalus Road (north of the Executive Suites Hotel), and the Skyridge development falling within Brackendale Elementary catchment boundary, effective September 2023. These changes apply to future students who are of Kindergarten age starting September 2023 or later, and siblings of these students currently attending school will not be affected.
