Please Be Advised: Student schedules
Student schedules posted on PowerSchool are not yet finalized and could change at any time. All schedules are finalized at the start of the new school year. Parents or students needing more information about timetables should contact their school, when it reopens in late August.
School Closed for Summer
Our office will reopen on Aug. 21. If you have any school-related questions or concerns while the school is closed, contact the Central Office at Elk Island Public School at 780-464-3477—the office is open all summer.

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.
Important Dates and Times
Course registrations take place August 21-29 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Grade 7 Orientation: Aug. 29 from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Please join us on Tuesday, August 29 at 1:00 pm for our Grade 7 orientation afternoon! Our grade 7's will be able to set up their lockers, practice with their locks, meet their teachers, and get their schedules. A very important day for our new grade 7's, hope to see you then!
For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2017-18 school year, refer to the EIPS Division Calendar.
Sync the School Calendar to your personal calendar
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.
Purchasing school materials? Before you shop, check your child’s School Supply List.
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.
