Important Information for the 2018-19 School Year

Students and parents should be able to access their 2018-19 timetables through Powerschool prior to August 27. Students who wish to make 2018-19 Semester 1 timetable changes can meet with counsellors during the following dates and times (although we attempt to work as quickly as possible, please be prepared for a wait). Please note that timetable changes are very difficult as there are many variables and constraints that make up a student’s timetable.

Grade 7 Orientation
Grade 7 Orientation meeting for new Grade 7 students and their parents will be on Thursday, August 30 at 6 p.m. in the theatre. Come to meet the staff, explore your timetable, open your locker and see your homeroom.

Registration Dates

Course registrations take place on the following dates:

  • Grade 12: August 27, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. 
  • Grade 11: August 28, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
  • Grade 10: August 29, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
  • New registrants: August 27-29, 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. by appointment only

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 2018-19 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 Administration office at 780-464-3477.

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 by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." 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.
