2017-18 Student Timetables

Just an FYI for our families that the 2017-18 student timetables will not be finalized until the end of August. Any timetable you may see in the portal over the summer is not to be considered official until the students receive them at school. We continue to work on timetables up until August 30 and changes could be made up until then. All grade 8 and 9 students will receive their official timetable on Aug. 30. Any Grade 7 students attending the Grade 7 orientation on August 29 will receive their timetable then.

Thank you

Important Dates and Times

Course registrations take place August 21-29 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

New Students

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 1:00 and 2:00 p.m.

Don't forget to bring with you: proof of residency and the student’s birth certificate.

Note to other incoming families who wish to attend FRH: Because we are a "closed" school, in order for FRH to accept your registration, you must provide proof of residence, such as a utility bill or drivers license. Please see the Registration page for forms. If you have any questions, please contact the office at 780-467-3800.


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.

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 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.
