Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!
We are excited to begin a new school year at Fort Saskatchewan Elementary. Please check out all of the information on this home page to find out what's NEWS. If you have any questions or concerns please call us!
Picture Day on Wednesday!
School pictures will be taken on Wednesday, September 20, 2017. Information will be coming home today (Monday). Please read the information carefully so that you and your child know what to do on Wednesday. If you have any questions, please call the office.
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.
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.
