Returning Student Registration Opens February 1!

The Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) returning student registration process for the 2020-21 school year is now open! To register your child for the upcoming school year, simply complete the online Returning Student Registration Form by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal—step-by-step instructions are below.

All returning EIPS students are required to complete the form by Feb. 29, 2020.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Visit the PowerSchool Parent Portal and log in using your username and password.
  2. Select the student you want to register—located along the top of the screen.
  3. Select the Returning Student Registration Form link on the left side—this is your landing page each day, by default, for February.
  4. Review the information and answer the questions as outlined.
  5. Sign and submit the form.
  6. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each student attending an EIPS school.


Frequently Asked Questions

I can’t remember my login information for the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
If you aren’t able to retrieve your login credentials using the “Having trouble signing in?” link on the Sign In page, contact your school directly for assistance.

What if I don’t have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account?
Instructions on how to create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account are available on the Division website. If you still need assistance, contact your school directly.

What if my child is not returning to an EIPS school next year?
Current Grade 12 students do not need to complete the Returning Student Registration Form. All other students still need to complete a Returning Student Registration Form, even if they are not returning to an EIPS school next year. Simply answer “No” to the first question and select “***This student will not attend an EIPS school next year***” from the second drop-down menu that appears.

Do I have to answer all the questions?
Yes, answers to all questions are required.

What if I make a mistake?
If you want to make a change before submitting the form, you can do so in the applicable field. After submitting the form, you can only make a change by contacting your child’s school.

Can I complete the form on the PowerSchool app?
No. The Returning Student Registration Form is not available on the PowerSchool app.

Can I complete the form on my mobile device?

Yes, but the form is not accessible on the mobile version of the PowerSchool Parent Portal. After you log in on your mobile device, select “Exit to Main PS site” at the bottom of the menu. It will direct you to the desktop version of the Parent Portal. You can then complete the form. You can also complete the form directly from your desktop computer.

I’ve completed the form, now what?
Once you’ve finished entering your information, click “Submit for Review by the School.” If you’ve requested a non-designated school or are registering your child for kindergarten, school staff will contact you the week of March 9-13, 2020. They’ll advise you of the outcome of your non-designated school request and inform you of the kindergarten schedule your child will have for the coming year, as applicable. For all other registration, refer to your school website for details about planning for back to school.

Help! I’m having trouble.
If you’re having trouble with the Returning Student Registration Form or your PowerSchool Parent Portal account, contact your child’s school for assistance at 780-467-2246 or email to have your password reset.
