Fort Saskatchewan Boundary Review
In February 2014, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) received the announcement regarding a new ECS-Grade 9 school in Fort Saskatchewan. As you are aware, the new school is scheduled to open in September 2016 and will relieve some of the enrolment pressures currently existing in the Fort Saskatchewan elementary and junior high schools.
EIPS is pleased to announce it recently completed phase one of the Fort Saskatchewan Boundary Review consultation process. It is now moving ahead with phase two—the design options for the new school boundaries. In March, the Board of Trustees approved changes to the Boundary Review timelines. The changes will allow EIPS administrators the time it needs to contract a planner to assist with the boundary review process and consultation to ensure adequate time and expertise is put into the process. All of the information gathered during the consultation process will help inform the recommendations on new boundaries that is scheduled to come forward to the Board for approval in the fall of 2015.
Throughout the boundary review process, EIPS will be providing updates and key information on the New Fort Saskatchewan School at www.eips.ca/fortsask-newschool. Please check back throughout the year for the latest information.

Boundary Exemption Process 2015/2016
Boundary Exemption Process 2015/2016
Win Ferguson Elementary will have closed boundaries for the 2015-16 school year for students in Grades Kindergarten through Grade 6. This means that because of our numbers, our school is only able to accept students from our boundary area.
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) reminds families that the boundary exemption request process will take place February 17 to March 13, 2015 for students who want to attend a non-designated school in the 2015-2016 school year. During this time, interested families must fill out and submit the Boundary Exemption Request Form (found on the EIPS website at the beginning of February) to the requested school.
More information about the boundary exemption request process, key dates, a list of schools with closed boundaries, and frequently asked questions will be available on the division website (www.eips.ca/boundary-exemptions) in January 2015.
The Leader in Me
7 HABITS IN THE SCHOOL THAT SHINES!
For the first two months of school, we’ll review all the 7 habits and then throughout the rest of the year, we’ll focus on one habit per month. At the beginning of the year, time is spent refreshing the 7 habits language and then throughout the rest of the year we will learn how to live and model the 7 habits in everything we do!
