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 2018-19 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 order them. To place an order, contact the EIPS Central Administration office at 780-464-3477.

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 schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." 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.

For more information:

Student Transportation fees

All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2018-19 school year have received a tentative route schedule and the applicable invoice—transportation fees can be paid online by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal or at the EIPS Student Transportation office.

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.

Still have questions about school startup?

Contact the EIPS Central Administration office at 780-464-3477 or visit for more information about back to school.

We look forward to a great year ahead and seeing all of our students back on September 4!

Walking to School Safely

Strathcona County is implementing many different calming measures to ensure students can walk to school safely.  Check this link to see what is being put in place in your neighbourhood.

The intersection of Lakeland Drive/Clarkdale Drive will be signalized by mid-August and activated before the opening of our school.  This will ensure a safe place for students to cross and will facilitate the movement of buses and other traffic out of the Davidson Creek subdivision safely.

A flashing beacon will be installed at the T-intersection of Summerland Drive and Lakeland Drive to help students cross safely.  As well, there currently is an overhead pedestrian amber flashing light at the intersection of Lakeland Drive and Davenport Drive.
