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.
For more information about school fees, waivers and payment deadlines visit www.eips.ca/schools/fees and www.ardrossan.ca- about-fees. Alternatively, contact Shelly Zaharichuk, Business Manager, 780-922-2228.
