School Notice

School Closed for Summer

Our office will reopen on Aug. 23, 2017. If you have any school-related questions or concerns while the school is closed, contact the Central Office at Elk Island Public Schools at 780-464-3477—the office is open all summer.

Staggered entry.

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 23 between 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. & 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

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


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.

Important Dates and Times

For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2017-18 school year, refer to the EIPS Division Calendar.

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.

Summer Hours at Elk Island Public Schools

Throughout the summer break, Pine Street School will be closed and will reopen on August 23rd from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm (closed for lunch from 12:00 – 1:00).

If you have any school-related questions or concerns during this time, contact the Central Office at Elk Island Public School—the office is open all summer to complete year-end activities and prepare for the 2017-18 school year.

EIPS Central Office Summer Hours (July and August)


Open: Monday to Friday; 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Phone: 780-464-3477 Address: 683 Wye Rd., Sherwood Park

NOTE: Student Transportation is also open during the summer months and operates during the same hours as Central Office. Student Transportation can’t accept in-person transportation payments on the days it’s closed.

Routine Head Checks for Lice

The end of the school year brings forth a great deal of excitement and lots of different kinds of activities with family and friends. It is most important for parents to do regular head checks for lice during the summer.  There have been two reported cases at the school in the last three weeks, and we are encouraging parents to continue making routine head checks so that other cases can be treated should they occur. More information can be accessed on our website by clicking here.

Should you require more information, please contact Alberta Health Services.
