Welcome to Elk Island Public Schools

Flags at Half-Mast, October 23 & 24 
You may notice Elk Island Public Schools' central services and schools have lowered flags to half-mast on Thursday, October 23 and Friday, October 24. This is in recognition of the tragic loss of Canadian Forces soldiers in recent events in Ottawa, Ontario and Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, Quebec earlier this week. 

Flags are at half-mast at all Government of Alberta buildings and they have encourged schools and related buildings to do the same.

Division Calendar Consultation
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is currently seeking input from parents and other stakeholders as part of our division calendar consultation process. The feedback collected will help inform the Board of Trustees when they review and approve a division calendar model for the 2015-2016 school year at their December 2014 Board Meeting.

Background information about the process and the work the Calendar Consultation Committee has completed to date is available to give you some context. Four calendar models have been developed by the committee for your review and consideration. A presentation is also available to provide you with more information about the four calendar models coming forward for your input. (This presentation works best if opened in Chrome.)

In developing the calendar models proposed, the committee discussed the authority and guidelines for developing division calendars and used the results from the division’s 2011 calendar survey and consultation process to guide this year’s work. In 2011, survey results from 2,900 parents, staff, and students strongly supported a five-day Fall Break, as well as Winter and Spring breaks coinciding with that of Edmonton Public Schools. Of the respondents, 77% of parents supported full-day professional learning and 71% of EIPS staff supported full-day professional learning. 

Once you have reviewed the information and calendar models, please share your input using our online survey. This survey will be open until November 15, 2014.

We invite and encourage parents to be part of this important planning process.


Grade 3 Student Learning Assessments
As you may be aware, Grade 3 students across the province are piloting the Student Learning Assessments (SLA) for the 2014-2015 school year. Elk Island Public Schools' Grade 3 students are participating in this pilot. Assessments will take place September 29-October 24, 2014. 

We encourage parents of Grade 3 students to visit the Alberta Education website for more information about the SLAs and answers to some frequently asked questions.

After reviewing this information, if you have any questions, please contact your child's school.
