Grade 7 Orientation

Grade 7 orientation will take place on Friday, August 31 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. for all grade 7 students joining us for the 2018/2019 school year. During the afternoon students will meet their teachers, be assigned their lockers, practice using their locks (provided by FRH), tour the school, etc. Students will also be able to bring their school supplies to put into their locker and will receive their schedule for the school year. 

Tools for School
If you’re a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies, 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, the backpacks are respectfully distributed to students who’ve order them. To place an order, contact the EIPS Central Administration office at 780-464-3477.

School Fees

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 by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." 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.
