2020/21 SCHOOL YEAR
We are busy planning for the upcoming school year. If you are moving, please inform the school as soon as possible. We greatly appreciate your help.

Kindergarten

Grade 1

Grade 2

Grade 3

Grade 4 / 5

Grade 5 / 6

2020/2021 Bell Schedule 

All elementary schools have been asked to use a common timetable of ten 32 minute periods. The rationale is to ensure that instructional minutes and teacher instructional assignments are consistent across EIPS. It will help with deployment of substitute teachers and the assignment of surplus staff. This eliminates our ability to offer instructional recess. Our Draft timetable includes a reverse lunch with students heading out for recess and then washing up and eating. This should help with students being more settled for the eating time and not wasting food or rushing through their meal.  As always, students have nutrition breaks throughout the day and hungry tummies are always helped!

EIPS ELEMENTARY ALTERNATIVE LEARNING OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES WEBSITE
EIPS has developed an Elementary Alternative Learning Optional Activities website that is linked within the Division’s Alternative Learning Toolkit. Parents are able to access optional learning activities for their children in non-core classes. Within this website we have Art, Music, Physical Education and, most recently, French activities in which students and families can participate. The site is updated every Monday at 9 a.m. with new and exciting weekly activities.


CAREGIVER EDUCATION SERIES
Children Youth and Families (CYF) Caregiver Education sessions are available online.


WELLNESS GOOGLE CLASSROOM TO SHARE WITH PARENTS AND STUDENTS
To support the well-being of our children and youth, there are two wellness classrooms available to students within the EIPS community. One classroom is specifically for youth in grades 7 to 9 and the other classroom for children in grades 4 to 6. The classrooms provide fun and engaging opportunities that support mental health and well-being in difficult time and do not require additional time or support from parents/caregivers.
Kids Zone for Wellness (grades 4 – 6): udw52m7
Youth Zone for Wellness (grades 7 – 9): ie6emuh


ALTERNATIVE LEARNING TOOLKIT
To help make the shift to alternative learning as smooth as possible, EIPS has developed an online toolkit for families and students. The toolkit includes learning resources, supplemental lessons, tips on navigating Google Classroom, strategies for supporting students, and more. Information is updated on an ongoing basis, and every day a new tip for families and students is posted online. In addition to learning supports, the toolkit also lists various mental health resources families can access to help navigate the global COVID-19 pandemic. 


SCHOOL FEES DURING COVID-19
The Government of Alberta, on the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, closed schools to students for the remainder of this school year. As a result, EIPS schools are in the process of determining which fees are refundable – for example those paid for lunch hour supervision and student transportation. Further information to parents is forthcoming in June. Of course, if you have outstanding fees, you are welcome to pay them online through your parent portal or call the school at 780-796-3936 to make arrangement for payment.
