Welcome to Elk Island Public Schools
Bright and early, buses were running this morning and school doors reopened. The 2015–2016 school year has officially begun for our more than 16,700 Elk Island Public Schools students. We hope all our students and families enjoyed a relaxing summer and are looking forward to an exciting school year.
Throughout the year we invite you to regularly visit www.eips.ca for the latest news and events happening within the division. Please also visit your child's school website for the latest school news updates.
To help plan for the school year, view our division calendar for important dates during the 2015–2016 school year including: school-closure dates; holidays; dates for the winter, spring, and summer breaks; the first and last day of classes; professional learning days; and early dismissal dates. Print a copy and keep it somewhere close-by for easy reference throughout the year.

Online Fee Payment System Updates
The ACORN online fee payment system (available through the PowerSchool Parent Portal) and the Student Quick Pay system will be unavailable Monday, August 31 at 6 p.m. to Tuesday, September 1 at 6 a.m. as we roll over all the necessary information from the 2014-2015 year to the 2015-2016 year. Families will be unable to access their online ACORN accounts or pay transportation fees online during this time. We encourage you to pay your transportation fees before the update to avoid a delay in getting your 2015-2016 bus pass.
Regular services, and the ability to pay student transportation fees online, will resume as soon as the roll over is complete. Schools will notify all families when 2015-2016 school fee information is available and payable through the online fee payment system.
Thank you for your patience as we complete these updates.
