Artist of the Week

Congratulations to Gurbeen Marar (Art 10) on her amazing zentangle name design. Using a high level of detail in the patterns, Gurbeen created a masterpiece!  Check this out in the front display case of the school, and more zentangle designs in the display case outside of the Art room, on FaceyTV and on Facebook.

Daily Attendance

If your child is going to be away from school please contact the school or email Mrs. Murphy

See the Attendance Policy for a variety of attendance situations including: excused absences, verified (unexcused) absences and truancies. 

School Fees

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 using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. 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.

For more information:
EIPS fees and waivers
Bev Facey Community High fees and waivers
Student Transportation fees

All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2017-18 school year should have already received a tentative route schedule. Those required to pay applicable transportation fees should have also received a separate invoice outlining payment information—we encourage parents to pay pay fees online.

If you haven’t received a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.

Look for bus passes and any updated route information in your mail in August.
