Back to School and Summer

Kindergarten Registration is Open!

Is your child turning five on or before Dec. 31, 2019? If so, it’s time to register for kindergarten.

Kindergarten registration opened for the 2019-20 school year on Jan. 15, 2019. To register, simply complete the online registration form at www.eips.ca/kindergarten.

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION CHECK LIST:

  • Determine your child’s designated school
  • Scan and upload all required documents: proof of name, residence, date of birth and citizenship.
  • Additional documents to scan, if applicable include: Guardian Letter and Parental Custody Agreement if restrictions on access.
  • Once the online registration is complete and submitted, a confirmation notice is sent to the given email address.

To help families prepare, Elk Island Public Schools has put together an online toolkit to make the transition as smooth as possible. The kit includes information on registration, important dates, programming options, what to expect, eligibility, how to find your designated school, transportation and more. Find it by visiting http://www.eips.ca/programs-services/kindergarten

Tools for School
If you’re a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies, we can help. EIPS has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2019-20 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in kindergarten to Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. When classes resume, the backpacks are respectfully distributed to students who’ve order them. To place an order, contact the EIPS Central Services office at 780-464-3477.

All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2019-20 school year have received a tentative route schedule and the applicable invoice—transportation fees can be paid online by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal or at the EIPS Student Transportation office.

Haven’t registered for Student Transportation yet? There’s still time.
Contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.

Bus passes and updated route information are mailed to families in August.

We look forward to a great year ahead and seeing all of our students back on September 3!
