Parent-Student-Teacher interviews will take place on Wednesday, October 25th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Thursday, October 26th, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Please note bookings for these interviews are now open.
To book your interview times please go to http://www.schoolinterviews.ca/, enter the school code wzm2f (all lower case) and follow the screen prompts. You will need to enter an e-mail address to receive confirmation of your conferences and will be able to book conferences for both evenings. You will not be allowed to schedule any conferences before that time.
You will need to enter your son’s/daughter’s name, the class, and teacher with which you would like to schedule a conference. You are limited to one conference time per teacher. Each conference is 10 minutes in length. If your son/daughter has a particular teacher for more than one subject, please just book one 10 minute time slot. If you need more time with a teacher, please arrange a separate meeting or phone call.
Please do not schedule your conferences “back-to-back”. Instead, allow 10 minutes between conferences. This provides “transition time” as you travel from one classroom to another and allows the conferences to stay on schedule. For example, if you book one conference at 5:20 pm, please do not book your next conference until 5:40 pm. Once your conference is finished at 5:30, you will have the necessary time to proceed to the next conference.
We suggest you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your first conference so that you can see which rooms you will be going to for all of your conferences. We will have a school map and students to help you find the correct room.

Ardrossan Jr. Sr. High School fee information for the 2017-18 school year is now posted on the PowerSchool Parent Portal. All fees are due within 30 days of being posted, October 31st. To access your fee information, simply log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and go to “Student Fees.” There you can view your fees and pay them online using Visa, MasterCard or INTERAC Online—when available from your financial institution. We are not able to accept credit or debit cards at the school or over the phone. If this is not an option, cheques can be brought to the school office. Paper statements have also been mailed along with the EIPS Correction/Demographics form. Thank you for reviewing, making any changes, signing and returning to the school office. Alberta Education requires that this form is signed and returned even if there are no changes made. We rely on the most up to date information.
Don’t forget to also log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal regularly throughout the year. Fees are often added to your child’s account to cover the cost of various school activities such as field trips, class projects, athletic-team fees and more.

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.
