- Photos will be taken during the planning days (August 25, 26, and 27). Student IDs will be available the first week of classes.
- Lockers will be assigned during the planning days on a “first come, first serve” basis. Locker Agreement forms must be signed by the student and parent/guardian and be presented before a locker is assigned.
- Student Parking Pass is available to grade 12 students. Students are selected from a random draw of applicants. For the 2014-2015 school year, students will be charged a fee of $27/semester. Students without a parking pass are recommended to park at SAP.

All families using EIPS’ student transportation services (http://www.eips.ca/student-tran) for 2014-2015 should have received tentative route information in May.
