Important Dates and Times

For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2016–2017 school year, refer to the EIPS Division Calendar; school-specific dates and activities are available on our School Calendar. Our Bell Schedule is also available to assist you with future planning.


School Supply Lists

To assist with the purchasing of school materials, we have compiled a School Supply List.


Tools for School

If you are a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies this year, we can help. Elk Island Public Schools has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2016–2017 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 will respectfully distribute the backpack to your child. To place an order, contact EIPS’ Central Office at 780-464-3477.


School Fees

Families will be 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 school fees is by using ACORN. Simply login to PowerSchool and go to “Student Fees,” there you will be able to view your fees and pay them online using Visa, MasterCard, or INTERAC—when available from your financial institution.

You can find more information about school fees at


Student Transportation

All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2016–2017 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 fees online. All transportation fees are due by June 30, 2016.

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.

NOTE: Bus passes and any updated route information will be mailed to families in August.
