Updating Your Contact Information

Have you recently moved, or has your contact information changed throughout the past year? EIPS encourages families to review the information it has on file to ensure it’s up to date. Using the Correction and Verification Form, available through the PowerSchool Parent Portal, families can review the current information on file for each student—addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, parent and guardian information, emergency contacts, medical details and other related information—and submit any updates needed.


Reviewing and updating the form ensures the Division has the most up-to-date information regarding your child. Your review is especially important if there’s any communication the Division or school needs to send out over the summer months related to classes next year.

All EIPS families are asked to review their child’s Correction and Verification Form by Monday, June 14 at noon. After this time, the form will be turned off for the remainder of the school year and not available again to families until the start of the 2021-22 school year.


NOTE: Only submit updates for the changes that have already taken place. If you’re moving this summer, you’ll submit the necessary updates to your address through the Correction and Verification Form at the start of next school year after you’ve moved.


If you have questions about the form or are having trouble with your PowerSchool Parent Portal account, contact the school at 780-467-0044.

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 780-467-0044.

Student Transportation: 2021-22 registration open

Planning to use Student Transportation in the 2021-22 school year? All students who indicated needing transportation services through the returning student registration process are now registered. Families registered will receive tentative route schedules and invoices by the end of the month—fees are due June 30, 2021.


For those students who didn’t indicate needing transportation service through the pre-enrolment process and want to now register, simply contact EIPS Student Transportation at 780-417-8151 or email st@eips.ca. For more information about EIPS Student Transportation visit www.eips.ca/transportation.


Families can pay fees online using the PowerSchool Parent Portal. To pay in-person contact Student Transportation to make an appointment.

Mental Wellness Day for Schools

On Thursday, June 3, the Government of Alberta is hosting a virtual Mental Wellness Day for Schools across Alberta to support and recognize the resilience of students, parents, teachers and staff. All students, parents, teachers and education staff are invited to take part in free, online sessions on mental health and wellness. Activities include:

  • inspirational messages by public figures such as country singer Brett Kissel and former NHL player and advocate Sheldon Kennedy;
  • engaging sessions by Alberta Health Services, Ever Active Schools, Jack.org and the College of Alberta School Superintendents; and
  • key learnings from speakers such as Dr. Jody Carrington and Dr. Michael Ungar.


Online events, of about one hour each, have been designed for specific audiences: kindergarten to Grade 3; grades 4 to 6; grades 7 to 12; school staff; administrators; and parents. There’ll also be a live kick-off session in the morning for everyone. To accommodate busy end-of-year school schedules, most sessions will be recorded and available to view online afterwards for up to two weeks. Program
