Coming Soon: School Supply lists for the 2018-19 school year
New next year, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is adopting a Division wide school-supply list to lift some of the financial burden from families. Each grade will now have a standardized list of required supplies to complete the year to ensure families aren’t purchasing materials in excess of what is being used in the classroom. The grade-specific lists are posted to the school website and will remain throughout the summer months.
Tools for School
Salisbury Composite High School has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2018-19 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks and school supplies to students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. If you’re a parent or know a parent who needs access to the program, contact our school directly. We’ll discretely provide the backpack to your child at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year.
Alternatively, if you’d like to donate to the program, you can pick up few extra supplies when you’re out shopping for back to school. Drop-off boxes are located at various businesses in the community during the summer months—including Staples and the Central Office at Elk Island Public Schools. All supplies donated within our community are invested back into in our region.
For more information about Tools for School, contact Sherry Feledichuk or call the Central Office at 780-464-3477.
Student Transportation Services for 2018-19
Planning to use Student Transportation in the 2018-19 school year? If so, make sure your child is registered so Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) can plan routes and send your child a bus pass before the first day of school.

Share your Thoughts: Provincewide Student Transportation survey now open
Currently, Alberta Education is conducting a survey regarding student transportation. Parents, school authorities and stakeholders are asked to take the survey. The feedback received will help determine if changes need to be made to the distance criteria, mandated service levels and the safety considerations. When completing the survey keep in mind the government has said there is no more money for Student Transportation, which means if something new is funded something else may be lost. The survey closes June 15, 2018.
