November Break Student Travel Information

As November break approaches, we have received a number of inquiries asking when students are able to return to school after travelling outside of Canada.

Unvaccinated students under 12 years of age travelling with fully vaccinated parents or guardians cannot return to school or daycare for 14 days following their return to Canada, and must follow the mandatory requirements under the Minimizing the Risk of Exposure to COVID-19 in Canada Order.

Fully vaccinated students 12 years and older who travelled out of the country can return to school without delay so long as they are asymptomatic. If unvaccinated, these students are subject to the Government of Canada’s required 14-day quarantine, whether or not they are accompanied by a parent or guardian who qualifies as a fully vaccinated traveller.

Additional information on travel restrictions and public health requirements can be found at the Government of Canada’s website.

PowerSchool Student Login Update

Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is updating the student log in process for the PowerSchool Student Portal. Once updates are complete, students will use their EIPS credentials to login to the PowerSchool Student Portal or the PowerSchool mobile app. Student access to the portal and app may be intermittently unavailable while updates are taking place.

Effective November 4, students will use the new EIPS login credentials to access the portal or app. Students who use the mobile app will be required to log out and back in after the updates are complete.

If students are having trouble logging in to PowerSchool after the change, they can contact their teacher or a school office staff member for assistance. This update does not affect the log in process for parents or guardians for the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
