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.

In order to ensure we comply with federal anti-spam legislation, parents/guardians are required to subscribe in order to receive routine emails from schools and the Division.  Please note: Those who are not subscribed risk missing important information on activities and projects including school-based events, fundraising activities, musical or theatre productions, school photos, graduations, dances, etc. 

Regardless of whether you subscribe or not, you will continue to receive emergency messages, information about the online posting of school fees and, where applicable, high school student attendance notifications.

Manage your subscription preferences online or through the School Messenger app, available through the App Store or Google Play.

  • The first time you log in, select Sign Upin the top, right corner and create your account using the same email address on file with your child's school

If you have questions about School Messenger or need help creating your account and managing your preferences, contact EIPS Student Transportation at 780-417-8151 or through our online contact form.


If your student is on medication please fill out the correct forms and submit to the office ASAP. 

Attendance Reporting

Attendance & Safe Arrival: We have a # of non-reported absences. One measure of keeping students safe is ensuring students have safely arrived at school. If your child is going to be late or absent for any reason, it is important that you contact the office immediately via email or phone (available 24hours/day) no later than 8:30am and report the reason for the absence/late. **Thank you kindly for your co-operation and support.

Parking & Speed Limits

Playground zones remain unchanged at 30 km/h and are in effect daily starting at 8:30 a.m. and ending one hour after sunset.
