Lock Return Information

Before students leave for the summer we need them to turn their lock in to the office, even if they haven’t been using the locker. If they can’t remember the combination, it is in the PowerSchool Student Portal. Here is the information on how to return locks:


  1. LEAVING PRIOR TO JUNE 18: Please bring the lock to the office and write the combination on a tag and lock it.
  2. JUNE 18:
    1. If a student only has a morning class, please bring lock to the foyer at the end of block 1.
    2. Afternoon classes will empty their locker and return the lock during grade level break time. Return the lock and write the combination on a tag and lock it.
  3. ONLINE LEARNERS: Please come after school any day before 4 p.m. to return your lock and empty your locker. Please return lock to the office.


Starting on Tuesday, June 22 we will be removing locks and emptying locker materials. Any items remaining on June 28 will be donated or disposed of. Please note classes continue June 21-23 with project completion, assessment opportunities and final exams. Students will need to bring required materials to their classes with them.

2020-21 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report 

The results are now available for the 2020-21 EIPS Parent Survey conducted in April. Thank you to all families who took the time to share their feedback with the Division. Part A of the survey included 21 questions related to the three priorities outlined in the EIPS 2020-24 Four-Year Education Plan:

  • Priority 1: Promote growth and success for all students
  • Priority 2: Enhance high-quality learning and working environments
  • Priority 3: Enhance public education through effective engagement


The overall Division results represent 3,198 responses from parents and guardians across the Division. This was an increase in responses from 2,967 last year. The survey results for Bev Facey have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.

Areas of strength:

  • How satisfied are you with the quality of teaching at your child's school? (Strongly Agree 45.88%, Agree 44.13%) 90.01%
  • My child's school encourages my child to be a responsible, respectful and engaged citizen. (Strongly Agree 50.20%, Agree 41.18%) 91.38%

  • How satisfied are you with the leadership in your child's school? (Strongly Agree 56.08%, Agree 35.69%) 91.77%

  • My child has an understanding of First Nations, Métis and Inuit culture and history. (Strongly Agree 35.45%, Agree 50.00%) 85.45%


Opportunities for growth:

  • My child's demonstrating growth in literacy. (Strongly Agree 32.46%, Agree 51.49%) 83.95%
  • My child's demonstrating growth in numeracy. (Strongly Agree 36.57%, Agree 48.51%) 85.08%

  • How satisfied are you with the resources available to support your child's learning (Strongly Agree 40.08%, Agree 46.03%) 86.11%


The feedback gathered in Part A of the survey will help our school and the Division measure its progress toward meeting the priorities and goals outlined in the EIPS 2020-24 Four-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve students and the wider community moving forward.


After the local election this fall, the feedback gathered in Part B of the survey will be used by the incoming Board of Trustees to develop a new EIPS Four-Year Education Plan for 2022-26 and beyond—one that’s responsive to student and community needs and focused on continuous improvement. Thank you to all parents who provided suggestions on how the Division and Board of Trustees could consider updating the Four-Year Education Plan for future years. The Division will share more information about the feedback collected in Part B of the survey after the Board and administration complete their review of the data collected this fall.
