Brentwood’s store is now up and running until October 29th. We are offering select Brentwood clothing options to all students so they can show off their Bobcat Pride! Once the store has closed the company will process all of the orders and have them shipped directly to our school (processing time will be approximately 5-6 week).
We will have a table set-up at Parent/Teacher Interviews with sizers so you can ensure what is being ordered will fit properly. Please check out the store at www.brentwoodstore.ca and check out what we have.
If there is a lot of interest we will be reopening the store in the spring with more options for purchasing.
**All orders are processed through the website, the school cannot take any orders through the office**
Parent Teacher Interviews Sign up
You are available to start booking appointments on www.schoolinterviews.ca starting Thursday, October 18th at 4:00 pm. Our school code to book for Brentwood which is "snuua".
Email Sign Up
Ongoing communication with our families is important to us. Elk Island Public Schools uses School Messenger as one way of sharing information directly with our families by phone and email. Messages may include bus cancellations or delays, inclement weather, upcoming events, last-minute cancellations, parental engagement opportunities, emergency notices and more.
Effective November 1, all phone calls going out through SchoolMessenger will display one of the following toll-free numbers rather than the school or Division number.
- Messages programmed from Student Transportation: 1-833-298-5234
- Messages programmed from schools and the Division office: 1-833-202-1419
With this change, parents/guardians have the ability to call back to this number to replay all recent phone messages they’ve received through SchoolMessenger. If you’ve missed a call or would like to replay a message to confirm you have all the details, simply call back the applicable 1-833 number and follow the prompts to repeat any recent messages.
Seeking Book Donations
Have any age appropriate books you are no longer using? We are seeking children’s books for all grades. Donations accepted in the office. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Scholastic Book Fair
We will be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair October Wednesday October 24th and Thursday October 25th. We are hoping to have some parent volunteers to help set up, help with sales during parent/ teacher interviews and help box it up. Setting up will take place Monday October 22. We need volunteers for Wednesday October 24th and Thursday October 25th starting at 3:30pm to 7:00pm. Task will be taking payments, helping parents find books and tidying up. We will be boxing up the Book Fair Friday October 26th. Please contact Shila King 780-467-5591 or email@example.com if you would like to volunteer. All sales go directly to the Library for purchasing books.
Dress for the Weather
Students are expected to bring jackets and appropriate clothing to stay warm and dry during these upcoming cold winter months.
Please ensure that your student is equipped with proper winter wear (warm footwear, jacket, mitts, hats, raincoats)
Thank you, and stay warm!
With the winter season already here, we want to remind parents to dress children appropriately for the weather when getting ready for school or the bus. The weather often changes unexpectedly throughout the day, so please select suitable outerwear and ensure your child is prepared for changing conditions.
If inclement weather conditions occur, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) advises parents of any bus cancellations using various communications tools—automated-telephone messages, alerts posted on www.eips.ca and school websites, Twitter, Facebook, local radio stations and on Versatrans My Stop. Any morning bus cancellations are posted on www.eips.ca by 6:30 a.m.
Decisions regarding bus cancellations are guided by EIPS administrative procedures that states, “school bus service may be suspended…when Environment Canada reports a temperature of -40 C.” Other reasons for suspending or delaying school bus services include adverse weather and poor road condition.
When school bus services are suspended, schools remain open to students. EIPS believes parents have the right and responsibility to make choices for their children based on their beliefs and perceptions of safety during times of inclement weather.

No Child Without: Free MedicAlert for students
In our ongoing effort to provide safe and caring schools for our students, Brentwood Elementary is once again participating in the Canadian MedicAlert Foundation’s No Child Without program. The program is a national initiative that provides no-cost MedicAlert services to children—between the ages four and 14—who have chronic health conditions. The goal is twofold: to help children with severe allergies, medical conditions or special needs and to assist schools with medical-emergency plans for students.
Once a child is registered, their school is provided with advice on a medical-emergency plan for that student and given a list of medications, allergies and medical conditions the student has. If your child has a serious medical condition or allergy and could benefit from MedicAlert services, contact the school office at 780-467-5591 To learn more about the No Child Without program, visit www.nochildwithout.ca.
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.
