Kindergarten registration is open for the 2019-20 school year. To register, simply complete the online registration form at https://www.eips.ca/registration/Kindergarten.
KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION CHECK LIST:

To help families prepare, Elk Island Public Schools has put together an online toolkit to make the transition as smooth as possible. The kit includes information on registration, important dates, programming options, what to expect, eligibility, how to find your designated school, transportation and more.

Tools for School
If you’re a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies this year, we can help. EIPS has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2019-20 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in kindergarten to Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. When classes resume, we respectfully distribute these backpacks to students who’ve order them. To place an order, contact the EIPS Central Services office at 780-464-3477.
All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2019-20 school year have received a tentative route schedule and the applicable transportation fees. The simplest way to pay transportation fees is online by logging into the Powerschool Parent Portal.
