Complete the Pre-Enrolment Process: March 1-15

Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is launching a new pre-enrolment process to simplify the way it registers students for the upcoming year, collects information and manages requests to attend a non-designated school.

On March 1, all EIPS families received an email from the Division asking them to confirm their child’s enrolment in a school for the upcoming year by completing the online Returning Student Registration Form—available by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Using the form, families can indicate the school their child plans to attend; apply to attend a non-designated school, if applicable; and update any required student information—such as phone numbers, addresses and emergency contacts.

All returning EIPS students are required to complete the form prior to March 15, 2018.

Applying to attend a non-designated school?
The new pre-enrolment process also eliminates the former Boundary Exemption Request Process. Now, returning students who want to apply to a non-designated school can do so through the pre-enrolment process by indicating on the form the school they want to attend. Acceptance is not guaranteed; rather, it’s based on available space. Some EIPS schools have closed boundaries because of high enrolment numbers and will not accept non-designated students for the 2018-19 school year. All families who apply to attend a non-designated school will be contacted and advised of the outcome in April.

NOTE: Any requests to attend a non-designated school or out-of-boundary program for returning students in grades 1-12 must be completed during the two-week pre-enrolment process to be considered for the next school year. The only exception: Students who move into the Division from outside the geographic area, or another community within the Division, following the deadline.

Pine Street School Library Redesign

Pine Street school is looking at making changes to our library.  Much of the shelving in the library is original or in need of a face-lift.  Pine Street School Parent Council and Society, along with our Library Redesign Committee and school administration have been examining ways of updating our library.  After many months of planning, several drafts and consultation we have come up with a NEW design for our library that we would like to share with all of you.  The NEW design includes creating a distinct space for both division one and two students, updating some of the furniture and making our library more user-friendly and welcoming.  We currently have some funds available (that was raised in previous years) for the library.  Our Parent Council, along with staff, will be doing a Math-A-Thon on January 26. Proceeds from the Math-A-Thon will go towards redesigning the library.  We have included a few pictures below of what we are planning to do to give you a better idea of our vision.

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.
