Have Your Say! Take the EIPS Parent Survey
Dear Elk Island Public Schools families,
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) wants to hear from you about your experiences with the Division and your school. Give your feedback by completing the 2018 Parent Survey—open March 5-23.
Annually, EIPS conducts a parent survey to gauge its progress towards meeting the goals and priorities outlined in its Three-Year Education Plan. Families are asked a series of questions about their experiences with EIPS and the school their child attends, the overall performance of the Division, the quality of education being provided to students and areas for improvement. At the end of the Parent Survey, French immersion families also have the opportunity to answer an additional series of questions regarding the French immersion programming offered within EIPS.
The survey feedback will help the Division develop new strategies to better serve students and the wider community.
TAKE THE SURVEY NOW
Survey closes March 23
NOTE: The survey is anonymous and only takes a few minutes to complete. If you want to share the experience of more than one child attending an EIPS school, simply complete the survey again.

Watch for Thin Ice
Elk Island Public Schools, along with our community partners, want to remind families about the dangers of thin ice during this time of year. Depending on changing temperatures, ice can form and melt to varying degrees on outdoor bodies of water. Please remind your children about the dangers of thin ice, to obey all posted signs and to take the proper care to remain a safe distance from the ice.
For more information on ice safety, visit www.lifesaving.org.
Did you know?
The way ice forms affects the way it melts in spring. Minerals in the water actually become concentrated in vertical veins throughout the ice as it freezes. Warm temperatures cause these veins to melt more quickly and weaken the ice, a process known as candling.
For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2017-18 school year, refer to the EIPS Division Calendar.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30-days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
