You can use your parent's address if you meet the below criteria.
You will than be able to register under P2C <1KM if your parent's is less than 1KM.

My child is being looked after by my parent or my sibling. Can we make use of their residential address for the purpose of registration?
Statutory declaration is required for parents who wish to register their child using the address of the child's grandparent or the parent's sibling and the address is within 2 km from the school of choice. The eligibility criteria are:

Both parents are working full-time at the time the statutory declaration was made; and
The child is under the full time care of a grandparent or a parent's sibling; and
The child's grandparent or the parent's sibling is not employed.

In addition, a child who gains priority admission into a school through distance category based on the child’s grandparent or parent’s sibling’s address is required to continue with the child-care arrangement at the address used for registration for at least 30 months, from the commencement of the P1 Registration Exercise on 30 June 2016. If this condition is subsequently not met, MOE reserves the right to transfer the child to another school with vacancies, as the basis of the priority admission to the first school is the declared address used for registration.
Did they change the regulations recently?

If not, you will fall under 1-2km if you use your parents' address even if they are within 1km of the school.

( Best to check with the school directly first)

cast2, this is incorrect. Even if your parent lives within 1km, you will still be grouped under 1-2km. So if the school goes for balloting for those <1km, you will be out.

No, they did not.

From https://www.moe.gov.sg/admissions/prima ... eclaration

If statutory declaration is used, children who are registered using either the grandparent’s or the parent’s sibling’s address and residing within 1 km or between 1 km and 2 km from the school of choice are balloted together with the other children of the same citizenship residing between 1 km and 2 km from the school. - See more at: https://www.moe.gov.sg/admissions/prima ...

Will your son be staying at your sister's place? Will she be your son's legal guardian? If so, yes, you can use your sister's address. Otherwise, no, you can't.
