Welcome to Joey Moss School
See all that Joey Moss School has to offer.
Joey Moss School opens for learning September 2022. The Board of Trustees approved our school name at a public board meeting on June 22, 2021.
Joey Moss captured the hearts of Edmontonians for decades. He became a household name working as a dressing room attendant for the Edmonton Oilers and the Edmonton Eskimos (now the Edmonton Elks), since the 1980s. Players and fans alike looked up to Joey for his passion, positive attitude and incredible work ethic. He taught many people about acceptance and inclusivity through his work, community involvement and advocacy for supports for people with disabilities in the Edmonton region.
Joey Moss School will be home to a school community that fosters a sense of belonging and where students are celebrated, respected and challenged. With a focus on building relationships and connections, the school will strive to provide enrichment and leadership opportunities that nurture the whole child in a welcoming and supportive environment.
For the 2023 - 2024 school year, Joey Moss School is full in planned classes from Kindergarten to Grade 8 in the regular program. A Kindergarten student who is a resident and lives in the school's attendance area may still register. We will only accept resident students in Grades 1 to 8 who have newly moved into the school’s attendance area for the regular program. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes.
If you are registering for Kindergarten or if you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.
Joey Moss School has a desire to engage with parents through School Council. Our School Council focuses on building a community at Joey Moss that works in collaboration with the Fundraising Society to sponsor events. As a member of the School Council, you are able to provide valuable input and gain insight into the education your child is receiving. Involvement also helps parents gain a greater understanding of the school and the educational process. All parents are encouraged to attend monthly meetings. Meeting information is posted for parents on SchoolZone.
A School Council Introduction and Establishment Meeting was held on June 20 at 6 p.m. via Zoom.
The Joey Moss Fundraising Society runs fundraising events to provide financial support to enhance the education of all the children that attend Joey Moss School. The Fundraising Society supports artist in residences and school performances to enhance the arts at our school. They also raise funds to support field trips, purchase technology and offer any other financial support that may be needed. Fundraising meetings will follow School Council meetings each month. Watch SchoolZone for more information.
The Joey Moss Playground Committee works with the City of Edmonton on the consultation, fundraising, designing and construction of a new playground.
A major role of the Playground Committee is to organize a variety of fundraising activities at the school and in the community. The committee will also raise funds through grant applications and private donations. We hope all of our families get involved to help us build a playground in a timely manner.
Joey Moss’s drive-through drop-off is a great feature of the school! It’s handy for parents in a hurry and great for students’ independence.
We have created the following set of rules in order to keep our parking and drive through safe and efficient for everyone. Please note the following:
1. Parents must stay in their vehicle. Children must exit from the passenger side, so please arrange your car seats accordingly. We will have volunteers to help open the door and unbuckle car seats if needed.
2. Primary drive through users MUST turn RIGHT to exit the school lot, secondary drive through users MUST turn LEFT to exit. If we have cars trying to cross into the other lanes this will lead to collisions.
3. When you enter the drive-through pull up all the way to the front.
4. All of your children must exit the vehicle at the same time. Please do NOT do two drop offs.
5. Children should only exit the vehicle along the STRAIGHT part of the sidewalk, NOT back where it begins to curve. If you need volunteer assistance, please continue to drive forward until one is available.
6. Please do not pull around slower vehicles. We greatly risk hitting a child crossing in the crosswalk if there is more than one lane of traffic trying to drive through.
7. Angle parking during drop off and pick up is for parents with students in kindergarten and our Interactions program ONLY. Drive through cars have the right of way and if you choose to use the angle parking you will have to wait until the drive through hours are over before exiting your parking space.
8. If you would like to wait with your child until they enter the school and they are not in kindergarten or Interactions, please use the street parking.
Drive through hours:
Morning 8:15 – 8:35
Afternoon 3:28 – 3:40
Please refer to this Traffic Map.

Welcome to Joey Moss School! We have had an amazing first year and we look forward to continued growth. Our staff team is so proud of our learning community, and the opportunities and support that we offer our students.
At Joey Moss, we are committed to providing a positive, welcoming learning environment that will foster and support student learning. We focus on creating a school community where diversity is celebrated and valued, and relationships are nurtured. Our goal is to ensure all students feel safe and happy every day.
Our priority is student growth and success. We provide opportunities for students to explore, create, collaborate and work to their greatest potential. We focus on literacy, numeracy, experiential learning, the arts and physical education. Our team encourages students to be confident in their own learning and be positive, contributing citizens in our school community and beyond.
We welcome and encourage our families to play an active role in their children’s education. Joey Moss School is currently collaborating with our School Council and the Joey Moss Fundraising Society to raise funds for our future school playground. We encourage all families and community members to get involved and support this project.
I look forward to meeting new students that join Joey Moss for the 2023-24 school year.
