NEW! June 29 Grade Six Farewell
Our Celebration of Learning we have held on the last day of school is changing. All students will be celebrating the end of the year with a Grade Six Farewell. There will only be a few awards given out to the Grade Six students: the Internationale Vergleichsarbeit awards for the Grade Six German Students and the Ed Kostyshen Award for the most well rounded Grade Six student. Individual awards will no longer be given out for Grade 4-6 students in a school wide assembly. We are looking forward to this new celebration on June 29 at 9:00 am.
Email contact between Elk Island Public Schools and parents/guardians
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) appreciates the opportunity to stay connected with parents and one of the ways in which we do so is through email.
Due to Canada's new Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL), effective 7 a.m. on February 15, we are not allowed to send you any type of email that may contain commercial content unless you have given us consent.
You must either subscribe or unsubscribe with every email address that you’ve provided to the school (home email(s); business emails of parents/guardians; emergency email contacts). This same message will be sent to all emails we currently have in our system.
In order to continue receiving routine emails from both the Division and the school(s) your child or children attend, you must click on the link below and select 'Subscribe.' If you no longer wish to receive routine emails, please select 'Unsubscribe.'
Once you have subscribed/unsubscribed from the first email, you will be given the option to enter other emails you’ve provided to the school and select the subscribe/unsubscribe option for each of those as well.
IMPORTANT: If you unsubscribe, you will not receive email with content or attachments including school newsletters, information about upcoming school and/or Division events, parent/community engagement opportunities, and occasional updates from Alberta Education. These messages may contain advertising or promotional content from time to time (e.g., school fundraisers; lunch programs; field trips; the sale of yearbooks; purchasing of student photos, books, graduation or dance tickets; athletic events with an entry fee; or similar events and offers), and are not allowed under the new legislation.
Please note that even if you unsubscribe, you will continue to receive emails regarding emergency situations and notice that school fees are posted online. Those parents/guardians who signed up for emails regarding high school attendance will also still receive those messages.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this very important matter.
