First Nation, Metis and Inuit Education at Fort Elementary
We are very proud at our school to have Miss Crowe on our staff. She has/is providing valuable education and learning experiences for our staff and students in regards to First Nation, Metis and Inuit history, culture and celebrations. Most recently Miss Crowe and Mrs. Mikulecky performed the Blanket Exercise with our grade 5 and 6 classes. Mrs. Mikulecky has also started the Spirit Singers Flute Club. We will keep you up to date on what is happening here, but in the mean time, check out the link below to see what EIPS is up to.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fee are now available on PowerSchool and a copy was sent home 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.
Canadian Anti-Span Law
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.
