Thanks everyone for your understanding.

If you are available to help with setup and takedown or running a station, we would greatly appreciate it.

If you are able to volunteer your time (please indicate half or full day) on June 25th, please return this slip to your child’s homeroom teacher.

Transportation 2019/20

Planning to use Student Transportation in the 2019-20 school year? If so, make sure your child is registered so Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) can plan routes and send your child a bus pass before the first day of school.

All students who indicated needing transportation services through the returning student registration process are now registered. Those families have also received tentative route schedules and invoices—all fees are due June 30, 2019.

Little Elk Island Adventure: Registration http://www.eips.ca/transportation/kindergarten-busing-faq

Elk Island Public Schools is once again running Little Elk Island Adventure, a fun and informative program for first-time school bus riders.

Annually, Student Transportation offers the Little Elk Island Adventure to new riders and their parents. The program’s aim is to help ease any anxieties a family may have about riding the bus before even starting school. Through a series of activities, riders learn about school bus safety, danger zones, tips on boarding and how to sit properly on the bus. After that, both the children and parents hop on the bus to practice what they’ve learned and then venture out on a short ride.

Tools for School

Brentwood Elementary has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2019-20 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks and school supplies to students in kindergarten through Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. If you’re a parent or know a parent who needs access to the program, contact our school directly. We’ll discretely provide the backpack to your child at the beginning of the 2019-20 school year.

Alternatively, if you’d like to donate to the program, you can pick up few extra supplies when you’re out shopping for back to school. Drop-off boxes are located at various businesses in the community during the summer months—including Staples and EIPS Central Services office. All supplies donated within our community are invested back into our region.

For more information about Tools for School, contact the school office or call the EIPS Central Services at 780-464-3477.

Check in to the Office

To maintain the safety of students and staff and to ensure that no unauthorized persons wander through the school, ALL visitors must visit the office first.  Please drop off skates, lunch, clothing items at the office.  Teachers have requested that their classrooms not be disrupted during instructional time.  Thanks everyone for your support.
