2017-18 PLANNING FOR BACK TO SCHOOL

We have had an exciting year at Win Ferguson Elementary and we’re looking forward to welcoming new and returning students for 2017/2018.

Win Ferguson Elementary will soon be closed for the summer, but will reopen again on August 23th at 9:00AM for new registrations. Please visit the school during the following times to complete the registration process for your children.

Main Office

August 23, 24, 25 2017  9 a.m to 3 p.m.

Browse through our website for registration, calendar, program, and other information to help you plan, for next year. For general information about back to school throughout Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS), visit the division website at www.eips.ca in August.

First day of Class for Grades 1-6 is Tuesday, August 30.

Students will come to the gymnasium on the first day where they will find out who their teacher is and meet him/her!

Kindergarten will have a staggered entry during the week of August 30 – September 1. Kindergarten parents will be contacted as to which day of the first week your child attends. Regular Kindergarten classes will begin on September 5th.

 

New Students

Is your child is starting at our school for the first time in the fall? If you haven’t yet registered, there’s still time—simply fill out the Student Registration Form and drop it off at the school when the office reopens on August 23 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Don't forget to bring with you: proof of residency and the student’s birth certificate.

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.

Important Dates and Times

For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2017-18 school year, refer to the EIPS Division Calendar.

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.

Tools for School
If you’re a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies this year, we can help. EIPS has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2017-18 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in kindergarten through Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. When classes resume, we respectfully distribute these backpacks to students who’ve order them. To place an order, contact the EIPS Central Office at 780-464-3477.
