August Registration: Locker and Timetable Pick Up

We have an exciting year planned at Salisbury Composite High and we look forward to welcoming new and returning students for the 2018-19 school year.

Each grade has an August date to pick up timetables, receive locker numbers and pose for photo I.D. Because timetables are reviewed by counsellors and administrators prior to that date, there should be minimal timetable changes. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. and close at 11:30 a.m. on these days.

Grade 12: Monday, August 27

Grade 11: Tuesday, August 28

Grade 10: Wednesday, August 29

Lockers will be allocated according to grade level. Students may reserve a locker for one friend if they have written permission from the friend or friend's parent.

Students who are new to our district and are living within our attendance boundaries, are asked to complete a New Student Registration Form. You will then be contacted beginning August 23 for a registration appointment. Appointments will be conducted during the afternoons of August 23, 24, 27 and 29. 

First Day of School

Classes resume Tuesday, September 4. For the 2018/2019 school year we are excited to continue the First Day of School format. Grade 10 students ONLY will attend school in the morning starting with a Welcome Breakfast (pancakes, sausage and fruit) in the cafeteria at 8:15 a.m.

We will then have special presentations and activities that will help students to become familiar with their new school building. The Grade 11 and 12 students will join the Grade 10's and staff at 11:34 a.m. for the Welcome BBQ (hot dogs and water will be provided - fries will be available for purchase).

Students will then attend a shortened version of their Semester 1 classes in the afternoon.

We look forward to a great start to a new school year!

School Fees

Fee statements will be available to parents/guardians mid-September through PowerSchool Parent Portal. If you have not already created your PowerSchool Parent Portal account, or require assistance with your online account, please contact the school.

2017-2018 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report

2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report 

The results are now available for the 2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey conducted in March. Thank you to all families who took the time to share their feedback with the Division. The survey included 20 questions related to the three priorities outlined in the EIPS 2015-2018 Three-Year Education Plan:

  • Priority 1: Promote growth and success for all students
  • Priority 2: Enhance high quality learning and working environments
  • Priority 3: Enhance public education through effective engagement, partnerships and communication

The overall Division results represent 2,918 responses from parents and guardians across EIPS. This was an increase in responses from 2,678 in the previous year.

The survey results for Salisbury Composite High School have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.

Areas of strength:

  • Open and honest communication
  • Staff care about the students
  • The School is safe
  • Growth in numeracy
  • Students are encourage to do their best

Opportunities for growth:

  • Students have the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to be successful in life.
  • Students have an understanding of First Nations, Metis and Inuit culture and history.

The feedback gathered will help our school and the Division measure its progress toward meeting the priorities and goals outlined in the EIPS 2015-2018 Three-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve students and the wider community moving forward.
