2014/2015 Transportation Fees

2014-2015 Student Transportation Fees and Payment Process

Elk Island Public Schools’ (EIPS) Board of Trustees has approved student transportation fees for the 2014-2015 school year, and families are now able to pay Student Transportation fees through ACORN, which is the same process that has been used this year for school fees. ACORN is accessible through the Parent Portal of PowerSchool or Student Quick Pay. This system replaces the online transportation fee payment process previously housed on the division website. This is great news for parents as you will now be able to pay all school-related fees in one centralized area.  

In May, Student Transportation sent out invoices to all applicable families regarding 2014-2015 transportation fees. This communication included information on how to access the ACORN system and pay your transportation fees online. The deadline for paying transportation fees is June 30, 2014. Transportation fees will increase after this date. Save time by paying your fees online through the ACORN system.

More information (including links to the Parent Portal and Student Quick Pay, additional instructions, and examples about reviewing and paying your 2014-2015 transportation fees online) is available on the division website at

If you have any questions about the invoice you received or about paying your fees online, please contact EIPS’ Student Transportation at 780-417-8151 or by using the online contact form at

2014 / 2015 Registration Process

Haythorne Cares!

Of course it does, and you knew that, but have you heard about the newest initiative here at FRH? Let me tell you about it!

The Haythorne Cares Project is an exciting, locally developed program that is in its first year of implementation.  Growing from a professional development activity in May, it is developing into something that has the potential to make our amazing school truly exceptional.  It calls upon the abundant human resources we have, our fantastic students, dedicated staff and committed parents. It is very exciting and full of tremendous possibilities. 

You can find updates on the Haythorne Cares Project on our connections page.
