Back to School: 2016-2017

Classes resume Tuesday, August 30.

We are looking forward to welcoming all returning and new students in the 2016–2017 school year.

Lamont Elementary School is now closed for the summer break. Our office will reopen on August 22.

Below you will find answers to many of your back-to-school questions.

Kindergarten
Kindergarten classes begin on Aug. 30, 2016. A letter will be sent out at the end of June to all parents with instructions and details for your child’s first day of Kindergarten.

 

New Student Registration
If you have a child starting at Lamont Elementary for the first time in the upcoming 2016–2017 school year and haven’t yet registered them, there’s still time. Simply, fill out the Student Registration Form and drop it off at the school office at the times noted below:

  • Date: August 23-24
  • Time: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Location: 4723 – 50th Ave., Lamont, AB.

*Be sure to bring with you the following: proof of residency and the student’s birth certificate.

 

Important Dates and Times
For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2016–2017 school year, refer to the EIPS Division Calendar; school-specific dates and activities are available on our School Calendar. Our Bell Schedule is also available to assist you with future planning.

 

School Supply Lists
To assist with the purchasing of school materials, we have compiled a School Supply List.

 

Tools for School
If you are a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies this year, we can help. Elk Island Public Schools has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2016–2017 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. When classes resume, we will respectfully distribute the backpack to your child. To place an order, contact EIPS’ Central Office at 780-464-3477.

 

School Fees
Families will be 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 using ACORN. Simply login to PowerSchool and go to “Student Fees,” there you will be able to view your fees and pay them online using Visa, MasterCard, or INTERAC—when available from your financial institution.

You can find more information about school fees at www.eips.ca/schools/school-fees.

 

Student Transportation
All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2016–2017 school year should have already received a tentative route schedule. Those required to pay applicable transportation fees should have also received a separate invoice outlining payment information—we encourage parents to pay fees online. All transportation fees are due by June 30, 2016.

If you haven’t receive a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.

NOTE: Bus passes and any updated route information will be mailed to families in August.

School Fee Payment

Thank you for another great year using the Acorn Online QuickPay system.  Please continue to go online to check that all your schools fees have been paid for the 2015 – 2016 school year as field trips, yearend activities and lost books may be added until school lets out for the summer.

 For outstanding fees for 2015 – 2016, online payments for students returning to an Elk Island Public School for 2016 – 2017 may be made throughout the summer, using the PowerSchool parent portal.  After August 4, 2016, online payments for students who are graduating or leaving Elk Island Public Schools will need to be made through the Student Quick Pay link https://www.studentquickpay.com/eips.  Parents will then create a new account and link their student with the student ID.

 All fees for the 2016 – 2017 school year will be available at the beginning of September.  PLEASE NOTE that Junior High and Senior High fees may change as courses are added and deleted.  The course change deadline is September 12, 2016.

 If you have any questions regarding your students’ fees, please call the school at 780-895-2269.
