Wee Read Volunteer

Be a wee read volunteer!

Brentwood is pleased to announce that we are implementing an exciting program called wee read. This eight-week program was designed by Alberta Reads (www.albertareadsnetwork.com) to help Kindergarten and Grade One children strengthen the foundations for reading and school success, and help children develop a love for books.

We are looking for volunteers who can come to the school for about 30 minutes, once a week, for eight consecutive weeks to read with two children, talk about books, and play games that support literacy skills. If you are interested in being part of this fun and meaningful opportunity, or know of someone who might be, there will be a volunteer training session held in the library on Thursday, October 12th from 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm. We hope that you will consider partnering with us on this. Please let Mrs. Russell (tracy.russell@eips.ca) know by October 6th if you would like to volunteer and will be at the training session.

Request for Medical Information/Update

**Only to be filled out if your child carries an EpiPen/requires medication at school or any other information you feel the school should be aware of**

To ensure that we have current and accurate information, we ask that you complete applicable medical forms for your child.

This information is vital for those students who may require the use of an Epipen for anaphylactic allergies and/or a puffer for asthma.  If your child requires administrations of any prescription at school, then a medication/Personal Care Request and Authorization must be filled out. 

Please complete the ones that pertain to your child and have them returned to the office by September 29th or sooner.

Synrevoice

Ongoing communication with our families is important to us. Elk Island Public Schools uses SchoolConnects Synrevoice 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.

In order to ensure that we continue to comply with federal anti-spam legislation, we require parents/guardians to either subscribe or unsubscribe for emails as of February 15, 2017.  Please note: if you unsubscribe, you will no longer receive routine emails from either your school or the Division that might include information about school-based events, fundraising activities, musical or theatre productions, school photos, graduations, dances, etc. 

Even if you unsubscribe, you will continue to receive emergency messages, information about the online posting of school fees and, where applicable, high school student attendance notifications.

All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2017-18 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 pay fees online.

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

Look for bus passes and any updated route information in your mail in August.

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 using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. 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.
