Cranston Second Elementary School (Sibylla Kiddle School)

66 Cranford Drive SE, T3M 0J1

Anticipated Opening Date | September 8, 2020
Grades | K-4

Registrations for kindergarten at Sibylla Kiddle School will be collected at Cranston School. Kindergarten registration begins on Jan. 20, 2020.​

The Calgary Board of Education is scheduled to open a second elementary school in the community of Cranston during the 2020-2021 school year. The opening of this school will have an impact on grade configurations and attendance areas for existing CBE schools in the Cranston community. On Sept. 18 we held an open house for the community to learn about the changes. Thank you to everyone who attended.

The information presented at the open house can be found in Supporting Documents.

Delay in School Opening

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am very excited to open Sybilla Kiddle School in the Cranston community, and I know that you and your children are equally excited! On May 27, 2020, I communicated that the school opening would be delayed and that Sibylla Kiddle School would operate temporarily out of Cranston School and Dr. George Stanley School.

I’m please to advise you that construction progress over the summer has surpassed expectations and although there will be a short delay our school will open following the Labour Day long weekend.

Change to the First Day of School

The first day of school will be changed to Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020 for students at Sibylla Kiddle School.

  • Please make child care arrangements for September 1, 2, 3 and 4.

I want to ensure that you are well informed and I understand that a delay in opening may cause child care difficulties for families. We believe it is in the best interest of our students and staff to open in our new school rather than start in the contingency school for such a short time and with the guidelines for Covid-19 in place.

One of the immediate benefits will be our increased capacity to socially distance the children for everyone’s health and safety. Further information on some of the site specific plans we will have in place will be coming later this month.

I look forward to seeing you and your children on September 8. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at


Brad Emery, Principal
Sibylla Kiddle School
