With a focus on unifying the community, the tour brought together all ethnicities, as we achieved a goal of intercultural understanding.
Omari Newton, urban poet-actor-Playwright gave us a history presentation, which included snippets of historical music recordings from legendary artists of the African Diaspora, as well as performances of original spoken word pieces and excerpts from impactful Historical speeches.

No Student Drop Off Times
Advanced Placement at Bev Facey
All classes start immediately at 8:35 a.m. and students are to be in class before the bell rings. Students who are late to class, regardless of reason, disrupt the learning environment. Consequences for being late will be assigned by the classroom teacher until the student has accumulated a cumulative total of ten lates. At the tenth late, and every fourth late after that, consequences will be assigned by administration. The consequences for late referrals are: assignment of study halls, in-school suspension, out of school suspension, and course withdrawal.
Students who are more than 30 minutes late to class will be marked absent. When students are on the school grounds after classes have begun, they must proceed to the office to check in.
Updated February 3rd: Boundary Exemption Process
Boundary Exemption Request Process for 2015-2016
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) reminds families that the boundary exemption request process will take place February 17 to March 13, 2015 for students who want to attend a non-designated school in the 2015-2016 school year. During this time, interested families must fill out and submit the Boundary Exemption Request Form (posted on the EIPS website starting February 10) to the requested school.
As of the March 13 deadline, if the boundary exemption request demand at a school does not exceed the number of spaces available in a grade/program, all families who submitted a boundary exemption request form prior to the deadline shall be registered at their requested school. If the demand exceeds the number of available spaces in a grade/program, the school shall participate in a random selection procedure. This procedure provides an equal chance of registration to all students in EIPS.
EIPS encourages families to register their children at their designated school as all schools in the division offer quality educational programming. However, we recognize there are situations where families would like to register their children at a non-designated school. More information about the 2015-2016 boundary exemption request process, key dates, and frequently asked questions are available on the division website at www.eips.ca/boundary-exemptions.
