Please Be Advised: Student schedules
Student schedules posted on PowerSchool are not yet finalized and could change at any time. All schedules are finalized at the start of the new school year. Parents or students needing more information about timetables should contact their school, when it reopens in late August.
School Closed for Summer
Our office will reopen on August 21. If you have any school-related questions or concerns while the school is closed, contact the Central Office at Elk Island Public Schools at 780-464-3477—the office is open all summer.
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 want additional information you can also learn more at eips.ca.
See you soon!
Kindergarten classes begin on August 30, 2017.
August 30 is the first day for our kindergarten students. During the week of August 21 you will be receiving a letter informing you when your child will come for their orientation day (staggered entry), which will begin on August 30. Regular kindergarten classes will officially begin on September 5. Please feel free to call the school if you have any questions.
Is your child is starting at our school for the first time in the fall? If you haven’t yet registered, there’s still time—simply fill out the Student Registration Form and drop it off at the school when the office reopens on August 21 between 9:00 and 3:00 p.m.
Don't forget to bring with you: proof of residency and the student’s birth certificate.
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.

Our Supply Lists
Purchasing school materials? Before you shop, check your child’s supply list.
(Click on the link at the bottom of this section.)
We are continuing to offer school supply packages through Write-On-Stationery. They will purchase, package and deliver all of your children's school supplies for next year. As part of their service, they also provide pre-printed labels.
Go to the Write-On website www.write-on.ca and order online, click on "PARENTS - Order Here", School Name - Fort Saskatchewan Elementary School, choose your grade and place your order. They now accept Visa, MC, AMEX, Visa Debit and Interac On-line.
Delivery of the supplies will be the week of August 28, 2017.
Once these orders have been processed, they will open the ordering so you can place orders over the summer.
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.
Tools for School
If you’re a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies this year, we can help. EIPS has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2017-18 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in kindergarten through Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. When classes resume, we respectfully distribute these backpacks to students who’ve order them. To place an order, contact the EIPS Central Office at 780-464-3477.
