Tools for School 
If you’re a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies, we can help. EIPS has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2020-21 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, the backpacks are respectfully distributed to students who’ve ordered them. To place an order, contact the EIPS Central Services office at 780-464-3477.

All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2020-21 school year have received a tentative route schedule and the applicable invoice. Transportation fees can be paid online by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Bus passes and updated route information are mailed to families shortly before classes resume.

Haven’t registered for Student Transportation yet? There’s still time. Contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.

Bus passes and updated route information are mailed to families in August.

School Fees

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 school fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. There you can view your fees and pay online using Visa, MasterCard or INTERAC Online—when available from your financial institution.

If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees in fall 2020.
