Parenting Teens in the 21st Century

In this session you will explore the challenges of being a teenager and parenting a teenager. You will also learn how to discipline and establish healthy, respectful boundaries with your teen. Register for this FREE session on the homepage of Ardrossan Jr. Sr. High School website.

Your Feedback Matters

We are inviting parents and staff to complete a brief survey to provide us with feedback regarding the Division’s Draft Policy 19, Welcoming, Caring, Respectful, and Safe Learning and Working Environments and what should be included in the student code of conduct.  

Elk Island Public Schools reviews its policies and procedures on a regular basis and will be getting feedback from our students at a student forum on February 16.

Your feedback is important to us and will be used to ensure all our stakeholders—trustees, students staff, parents, volunteers, and contractors working for the school board—have access to a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning and working environment.

The survey is anonymous and will take roughly 10 minutes to complete. The survey closes March 2, 2016

Please visit the Elk Island Public School website to read the policy and complete the survey by clicking here.

PowerSchool Parent & Student Portals

The PowerSchool Parent and Student portals are now accessible at all EIPS schools using your mobile devices and connecting to the school guest wireless networks. The PowerSchool portal allows access to Flex scheduling as well as other PowerSchool information.

Included in this email is information on the Student portal as well as how to access your Powerschool information using your iPad or iPhone and the downloadable application. The Apple IOS and Android applications on first login can take up to 5 minutes to login.  This is due to a large amount of data being downloaded to the mobile device and not because of a slow wireless or Internet connection.

You can connect to the Parent or Student portal by going to https://powerschool.eips.ca/public and logging in with your assigned user ID and password.
