School Fees

Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fee are now available on PowerSchool and a copy will be sent home tomorrow, September 20. 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.

For more information:

Student Transportation fees

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.

Get Involved in Your Parent Council!

Our first Parent Council and Parent Society meetinga will be on Thursday, September 21.  The meetings start at 6:30 p.m. and usually run until 8 p.m.  Please join us in the staff room for some information sharing, connecting with others and volunteer opportunities. We hope to see you on the 21st.

Ongoing communication with our families is important to us. Elk Island Public Schools uses SchoolConnects Synrevoice as one way of sharing information directly with our families by phone and email. Messages may include bus cancellations or delays, inclement weather, upcoming events, last-minute cancellations, parental engagement opportunities, emergency notices, and more.

In order to ensure that we continue to comply with federal anti-spam legislation, parents/guardians are required to subscribe in order to receive routine emails from schools and the Division.  Please note: Those who are not subscribed risk missing important information on activities and projects including school-based events, fundraising activities, musical or theatre productions, school photos, graduations, dances, etc. 

Regardless of whether you subscribe or not, you will continue to receive emergency messages, information about the online posting of school fees and, where applicable, high school student attendance notifications.
