Complete the Returning Student Registration: February 1-28

Elk Island Public Schools’ (EIPS) returning student registration process is open Feb 1. All returning students must complete the online Returning Student Registration Form to confirm their child’s enrolment in a school for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. Additionally, students who want to attend a non-designated school need to make that request through the returning student registration process—acceptance is based on available space. All returning EIPS students are required to complete the form by Feb. 28, 2022.


To access the Returning Student Registration Form, simply log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal.


If you don’t have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, you do need to set one up. For help see: Create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account



For more information contact Rudolph Hennig directly at 780-998-2216.

Calling in Absences

We have had a high number of unexcused absences lately. From a safety perspective, we require all students who will be absent from school to be excused by a parent or guardian. Please contact the school before school begins if possible. This can be done by:



Moving forward we will be calling the families of students who are away to confirm the absence, but our preference is that families reach out to the school. Thanks for your support with this.

Career Exploration Opportunity at RHJ

RHJ will be part of a pilot centered around the Career Exploration Quiz for Teens, and will take place during Health class. The Daily Quiz guides students through college and university websites to build their knowledge of the possibilities, capture their interests, and spark a conversation.

The quiz is a 10-minute, daily self-discovery activity that serves students with a new set of questions every day that becomes more personalized over time. This tool will help students explore post-secondary, labour markets, and career options, and match their interests to higher education and career pathways. We are excited for our students to see what is out there beyond high school!

Student Voice

Mr. Shudra and Mrs. Orr met with all of the grade 8 classes and will meet with the last grade 7 class this week to talk about student citizenship at Rudolph Hennig. It is important to connect and listen to all of the different school community members. Our students are the reason we are all here and a vital voice in the process.

In February, we will again be connecting with our students to get feedback on our option courses, and continue our conversation about student citizenship. The goal is to highlight all of the amazing things that our students do to respect and help each other!

High School Information Nights and Open House

Fort High Open House

It is hard to believe that we are already getting our grade 9's to head off to high school, but here we are! Below are some information nights for some of our Division Programs. The Fort High Open House is scheduled for Thursday, February 17 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. We will share more information as we get it.


High School Information Nights

To help you make an informed decision about high school, senior high schools throughout Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) are hosting information sessions for all Grade 9 students and their families. The sessions allow students and families to meet the staff; tour the school; learn about the curriculum, course offerings and alternative programming available; discuss diploma requirements and various career paths; plus, more. Decisions about whether each event will take place virtually or in-person will be made closer to each date. Refer to the event calendar on each school website for details in the coming weeks. Make sure to take part to learn everything you need to know about the Division’s senior high programs and courses. Senior High Information Nights: Dates and times EIPS senior high programming

Preparing for the World of Work

Career Pathways is designed to develop skills that students can apply in their daily lives when preparing for entry into the workplace or for further learning opportunities. Competencies achieved will allow students to make relevant connections with work and/or post-secondary training.

Each month Career Pathways distributes relevant planning material, presentation sessions, occupational spotlights, and other helpful information meant to support students and families. It is our hope students in Junior High begin to understand opportunities available to them and explore and reflect on a variety of experiences to help them plan their next steps. High School students continue to set goals and further develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes that increase their readiness to successfully transition beyond high school.
