Programs and Organizations
Vernon Barford School is organized on a two day, six periods per day schedule. The school presently has eighteen regular classes and nine challenge classes for grades seven to nine, as well as programming for English language learners and literacy students.
Complementary courses include French as a second language, Spanish language and culture, art, drama, instrumental music, clothing textile fashions, food studies, construction and career explorations. Special needs students are integrated into regular programming where appropriate.
There are a few of our students who have serious allergic reactions to scented perfumes and hair sprays. We are asking, for the safety of these individuals, that students, staff and parents avoid the use of such items when in school. Your understanding and cooperation are appreciated.
Parents of students who have purchased Edmonton transit passes can claim a non-refundable tax credit on their income tax returns. Receipts will be posted on SchoolZone. Parents are advised that they need to retain the transit passes together with the receipts provided. The credit applies only to the purchase of public transit passes.
