Also if you answer yes to any questions please refer to Alberta Health Services COVID-19 Self Assessment for further assistance.
In-school students who test positive for COVID-19 are asked to notify the school or Division to ensure the proper cleaning and public-health measures are followed. We also encourage you to review the EIPS COVID-19 Guidelines on an ongoing basis. The guide outlines how schools are operating, expectations and public-health measures in place until public-health restrictions lift.
Assistance for Families
EIPS Summer Hours
Summer Hours at Elk Island Public Schools
Throughout the summer break, Lamont High is closed. It reopens on August 25. If you have any school-related questions or concerns while the school is closed, contact EIPS Central Services—the office is open all summer to complete year-end activities and prepare for the 2021-22 school year. Students return to school on September 1.
EIPS Central Office Summer Hours: June 28 to August 24
Open: Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Address: 683 Wye Rd., Sherwood Park
Closed July 1 Canada Day
Closed August 2 Heritage Day
NOTE: Student Transportation also remains open during the summer months—operating during the same hours as EIPS Central Services.
Student Transportation: 2021-22 registration
Planning to use Student Transportation in the 2021-22 school year? If so, make sure your child is registered so Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) can plan routes and send your child a bus pass before the first day of school.
All students who indicated needing transportation services through the returning student registration process are now registered. Those families have also received tentative route schedules and invoices—fees are due June 30, 2021.
For those students who didn’t indicate needing transportation service through the returning student registration process and want to now register, simply contact EIPS Student Transportation at 780-417-8151 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information about EIPS Student Transportation visit www.eips.ca/transportation.
NOTE: Families can pay fees online using the PowerSchool Parent Portal. To pay in person contact Student Transportation to make an appointment.
Tools for School
Lamont High has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2021-22 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks and school supplies to students in kindergarten through Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. If you’re a parent or know a parent who needs access to the program, contact the school directly. Staff will discretely provide the backpack to the child at the beginning of the 2021-22 school year.
Alternatively, if you’d like to donate to the program, you can pick up a few extra supplies when you’re out shopping for back-to-school. Drop-off boxes are located at various businesses in the community during the summer months—including Staples and the EIPS Central Services office. All supplies donated within the community are invested back into the region.
For more information about Tools for School, contact Mrs. Doerksen (email@example.com) or call the EIPS Central Services at 780-464-3477.
Accessing User Accounts: Students Leaving EIPS
Is your child graduating from or leaving EIPS at the end of the school year? If so, they must ensure any information they want to retain from their school cloud accounts is downloaded onto a personal device before leaving.
- Google account – Students must download any wanted content before September 1—download files individually or in bulk using Google Takeout.
- Microsoft account – Students must download any wanted content from their OneDrive account before September 1.
After Sept. 1, 2021, EIPS will deactivate the account and delete all remaining files.
For more information, contact the school at 780-895-2228.

Visitors in Schools
Non-essential visitors and contractors ARE NOT permitted in the school or workplace without an appointment. To make an appointment, contact the school directly. If permission is granted and an appointment is made, the visitor or contractor must complete the verbal COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire. If any of the answers to the questions are “YES,” DO NOT enter the school or workplace. Similarly, if feeling unwell or have COVID-19 symptoms—fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell and taste, aches, pink-eye, nausea —DO NOT enter an EIPS-operated school or workplace. After entering, sanitize hands, sign the visitor log at the main office and wait for further instruction from school administration. For deliveries, offload at the designated location. And, as always, practice respiratory etiquette and physical distancing. Wearing personal protective equipment—a non-medical mask or face-covering—is mandatory.
Volunteers and volunteer opportunities within an EIPS school or building are suspended until further notice
