All Grade 7 students are invited to a preview afternoon on Friday August 29.  This is exclusively for Grade 7 students and they will have a chance to learn more about the school before everbody starts back on September 2.  The preview will begin at 1:30pm in the gym and last 1 hour.  After a short welcome and introductions, students will have the opportunity to meet their teacher, find their homeroom, check out who is in their class, locate their locker, learn their combination, and practice getting around the school.  Parents are most welcome to attend as well.

Attendance to the preview is not required, but we certainly hope our Grade 7 students will be able to make it on Friday August 29.

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
