Tools for School 
If you’re a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies, we can help. EIPS has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2021-22 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School in EIPS provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in kindergarten to Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. When classes resume, the backpacks are respectfully distributed to students who’ve order them. To place an order, contact the EIPS Central Services office at 780-464-3477.

The Division is also accepting donations for the campaign. If you have the means to do so, why not pick up a few extra supplies when you’re back-to-school shopping. Donations can be dropped off at EIPS Central Services.

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 school fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. There you can view your fees and pay them online using Visa, MasterCard or debit card—when available from your financial institution.

If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees. The 2021-22 fee waiver application deadline is Dec. 15, 2021.

All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2021-22 school year have received a tentative route schedule and the applicable invoice. Transportation fees are now due and can be paid onlineBus passes and updated route information are mailed to families in August.
