If you have any school-related questions or concerns during the summer, contact the Elk Island Public School Central Services office—the office is open all summer to complete year-end activities and prepare for the 2019-20 school year.

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.
