EIPS Division Calendars
The Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) Board of Trustees has approved the division calendar for the 2016 2017 school year.
We are pleased to welcome Mr. Lonnie Hicks as the new principal of FR Haythorne Junior High School. Mr. Hicks is currently the principal of Clover Bar Junior High School. Some of you may remember Mr. Hicks serving as the interim Acting Principal of FR Haythorne for 3 months in the spring of 2014. Mr. Hicks and I will be meeting over the next couple of weeks to transition the leadership of FR Haythorne.
Thank you for your support of me these past 2 years and I hope that you will welcome and support Mr. Hicks. Have a safe & relaxing summer. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at FR!
Newsletter Information Regarding Acorn and Student Fees
Thank you for another great year using the Acorn Online QuickPay system. Please continue to go online to check that all your schools fees have been paid for the 2015 – 2016 school year as field trips, yearend activities and lost books may be added until school lets out for the summer.
For outstanding fees for 2015 – 2016, online payments for students returning to an Elk Island Public School for 2016 – 2017 may be made throughout the summer, using the PowerSchool parent portal. After August 4, 2016, online payments for students who are graduating or leaving Elk Island Public Schools will need to be made through the Student Quick Pay link https://www.studentquickpay.com/eips. Parents will then create a new account and link their student with the student ID.
All fees for the 2016 – 2017 school year will be available at the beginning of September. PLEASE NOTE that Junior High and Senior High fees may change as courses are added and deleted. The course change deadline is September 12, 2016.
If you have any questions regarding your students’ fees, please contact Linda Wells, Business Manager, (780) 467-3800.
