Want to stay up-to-date on the latest news and events taking place at your school? Make sure to subscribe to Elk Island Public Schools’ (EIPS) email distribution list.

NOTE: Even if you’re not subscribed, you will continue to receive emails regarding emergency situations and financial matters. Those who received notifications about high school attendance will also continue to receive those messages.

Guide To Reporting Student Achievement
This guide will help parents and guardians understand:
- the responsibilities of students, staff, and parents and guardians;
- how and when achievement information will be communicated or reported;
- how marks and grades are determined; and
- the steps taken when summative assessments are missing or incomplete.
For more details please click on the following link Guide to Reporting Student Achievement
All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2017-18 school year should have already received a tentative route schedule. Those required to pay applicable transportation fees should have also received a separate invoice outlining payment information—we encourage parents to pay pay fees online.
If you haven’t received a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.
Look for bus passes and any updated route information in your mail in August.
Important Dates and Times
For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2017-18 school year, refer to the EIPS Division Calendar.
Sync the School Calendar to your personal calendar.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30-days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
