Inclement Weather Procedures
Please click on the following link for information regarding Elk Island Public Schools procedures for inclement weather.
With colder temperatures upon us, it is important that your child come dressed appropriately: snow pants, winter coat, warm hat, mitts and winter boots. It is also a good idea to pack extra clothing and mitts for those occasions when clothing items might get wet or lost.
ECS Registrations for 2015-16 School Year
Register for Kindergarten
Registrations for Kindergarten are currently being accepted for children within our boundary. To determine if you live within the Pine Street School attendance area, please call the school at 780-467-2246 or Elk Island Public Schools, at 464-3477 or visit the School Locator on the Elk Island Public Schools website.
Children are eligible to register for the upcoming school year if they will be five years old on or before December 31, 2015. Please bring your child’s birth certificate or passport in order to complete the registration process. This documentation must be provided before the first day of school.
Check out the Elk Island Public Schools division website at www.eips.ca/kindergarten for information about Kindergarten programs, registration details, and division information. The 2015-2016 Kindergarten guide, Kindergarten, It’s Only the Beginning, is also available online and in free magazine racks throughout the community.
There is a fee for Kindergarten noon hour busing. Children attending a full-day Kindergarten program would access regular student busing at the beginning and end of each day.
Please join us on Wednesday, May 20th at 6:30 pm for our Kindergarten Information Night to meet the staff and take a school tour.
Kindergarten Options at Pine Street School for 2015-2016
We are exploring the option of running two full-day Kindergarten programs, along with one morning, and afternoon half-day program at Pine Street School for the 2015-2016 school year.
The half-day program would run every day, Monday to Friday, either in the morning or the afternoon. The full-day program would run either on Monday and Thursday, and alternating Wednesdays, or Tuesday and Friday, and alternating Wednesdays.
When parents come to register their child for Kindergarten, they will be asked to state their preference: half-day program (morning or afternoon) or full-day program (Monday and Thursday, alternating Wednesdays, or Tuesday and Friday, alternating Wednesdays). We will do our best to honour parents’ preferences, however there is no guarantee.
The decision to offer a full-day Kindergarten program for 2015-2016 will be made later this spring, dependent on whether the required enrolment numbers are reached for two full classes. If it is not reached, we will return to offering two morning and two afternoon programs. We will notify all parents as soon as the decision is made. If you have any questions, please contact our principal, Evelyn Gaudet.
