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 2018-19 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in kindergarten to 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 Administration office at 780-464-3477.
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 in to 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 2018-19 school year have received a tentative route schedule and the applicable transportation fees. The simplest way to pay transportation fees is online by logging into the Powerschool Parent Portal.
Haven’t received a letter from Student Transportation yet? There’s still time.
Contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.
Bus passes and updated route information are mailed to families in August.
Still have questions about school startup?
We look forward to a great year ahead and seeing all of our students back on September 4!
