Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of each quarter. Fees are due within 14 days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to review and pay school and transportation fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." There you can view your fees and pay them online using Visa, MasterCard or INTERAC Online—when available from your financial institution.
Don’t forget to also log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal at the start of each quarter and regularly throughout the year. Fees may be added to your child’s account at any time to cover the cost of various school activities.
If you have additional questions regarding your child’s fees, or if you are new to the school and need assistance, please contact our main office at 780-467-0044.
Fee Waiver Applications
The Division is now accepting applications for fee waivers. Parents/guardians can find the form and information on the Division website, and the associated information on all school website has also been updated. The deadline for receiving fee waiver applications is December 15. An extension will be granted for students transitioning from out-of-school learning to in-class learning and for families new to Elk Island Public Schools after December 15.
If it’s determined fees aren’t eligible to be waived, based on the submitted application, payment options may be made with the school’s administration or the director of Student Transportation.
School Fee Refund Statement
Students who leave their school prior to the end of the school year or semester shall be refunded school fees (excluding activity or extracurricular fees) on a prorated basis.
One of the following statements regarding refunds will be outlined on each activity or event when the fees are assessed:
- Refunds will be issued when students are unable to participate in this activity.
- Refunds are available for the registration portion only. The cost of busing cannot be refunded.
- We are unable to issue refunds for this activity due to fixed costs.
If a student is not able to participate in an activity and a refund or partial refund is available, it is the responsibility of the parent to contact the school to have the applicable portion of the fee removed from their account.
A student registered for an optional course—where a substantial amount of the course is related to activities—is not eligible to be refunded and is responsible for any related outstanding fees if the student is not able to participate or chooses not to participate in the activity.
School fee refunds and credits on accounts will be applied in the following order:
- Payment of outstanding fees
- Left on account for future fees
- Transferred to sibling fees, on request
- By cheque
