School fee information for the 2018-19 school year is now posted on the PowerSchool Parent Portal. All fees are due within 30 days of being posted. To access your fee information, simply log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and go to “Student Fees.” There you can view your fees and pay them online using Visa, MasterCard or INTERAC Online—when available from your financial institution.
Don’t forget to also log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal regularly throughout the year. Fees are often added to your child’s account to cover the cost of various school activities such as field trips, class projects, athletic-team fees and more.
For more information about school fees, waivers and payment deadlines, contact Chantelle Grieve, Bookkeeper, Brentwood Elementary at 780-467-5591.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30 days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
Waiver of Fees
The fee waiver application deadline—for both school and transportation fees—is Dec. 15, 2018.
If it’s determined fees aren’t eligible to be waived, based on the submitted application, payment options may be made with the school’s administration or the director of Student Transportation.
School Fee Refund Statement
Students who leave their school prior to the end of the school year or semester shall be refunded school fees (excluding activity or extracurricular fees) on a prorated basis.
One of the following statements regarding refunds will be outlined on each activity or event when the fees are assessed:
- Refunds will be issued when students are unable to participate in this activity.
- Refunds are available for the registration portion only. The cost of busing cannot be refunded.
- We are unable to issue refunds for this activity due to fixed costs.
If a student is not able to participate in an activity and a refund or partial refund is available, it is the responsibility of the parent to contact the school to have the applicable portion of the fee removed from their account.
A student registered for an optional course—where a substantial amount of the course is related to activities—is not eligible to be refunded and is responsible for any related outstanding fees if the student is not able to participate or chooses not to participate in the activity.
School fee refunds and credits on accounts will be applied in the following order:
- Payment of outstanding fees
- Left on account for future fees
- Transferred to sibling fees, on request
- By cheque
Lunchroom Fees (Optional)
All students are eligible to stay for lunch at Brentwood School. However, Elk Island Public Schools does not fund the cost of supervision at noon. Students wishing to remain at school during the lunch break will be levied a fee as per the schedule listed below. Note: This is a non-profit operation and all fees go to staffing costs.
The majority of our students' families have elected to pay for the service provided at the noon hour. Students not paying for the noon hour program are expected to return to school no earlier than 12:51 pm.
Students and parents are reminded that eating lunch at school is a privilege. There are behavioural expectations that must be met. Students must do the following:
- Sit in their desks while eating;
- Listen during roll call;
- Talk with inside voices;
- Clean up after themselves.
If students do not follow the rules, parents may be asked to make alternative lunch arrangements for their children.
Below are lunch program fees:
