Pre-Enrolment Process March 1-15
Complete the Pre-Enrolment Process: March 1-15
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is launching a new pre-enrolment process to simplify the way it registers students for the upcoming year, collects information and manages requests to attend a non-designated school.
On March 1, all EIPS families received an email from the Division asking them to confirm their child’s enrolment in a school for the upcoming year by completing the online Returning Student Registration Form—available by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Using the form, families can indicate the school their child plans to attend; apply to attend a non-designated school, if applicable; and update any required student information—such as phone numbers, addresses and emergency contacts.
All returning EIPS students are required to complete the form prior to March 15, 2018.
Applying to attend a non-designated school?
The new pre-enrolment process also eliminates the former Boundary Exemption Request Process. Now, returning students who want to apply to a non-designated school can do so through the pre-enrolment process by indicating on the form the school they want to attend. Acceptance is not guaranteed; rather, it’s based on available space. Some EIPS schools have closed boundariesbecause of high enrolment numbers and will not accept non-designated students for the 2018-19 school year. All families who apply to attend a non-designated school will be contacted and advised of the outcome in April.
NOTE: Any requests to attend a non-designated school or out-of-boundary program for returning students in grades 1-12 must be completed during the two-week pre-enrolment process to be considered for the next school year. The only exception: Students who move into the Division from outside the geographic area, or another community within the Division, following the deadline.

Parent Survey: French Immersion
EIPS is committed to providing a high-quality and comprehensive French immersion program that meets the needs of our students. As such, the Division is gathering feedback from all of our French immersion parents. Parents/guardians play a key role in supporting their child to achieve the goals of the French immersion program and their input is critical for the Division to continue to enhance the French immersion experience for students.
As part of the EIPS annual Parent Survey this year, French immersion families will also have an opportunity to provide additional feedback specific to the French immersion program. The link to the French immersion survey will be available at the end of the parent survey, and it will also run March 5-22.
Please take this opportunity to provide feedback. Merci
Kindergarten Registration 2018
Registration for Kindergarten starts January 15th at 6pm.
All registrations will be done online this year. If you would like to come by and talk to us we would be happy to have you stop by to check out the school and answer any questions.
The two options for Kindergarten calendars are Calendar A and Calendar B. When registering online, families can indicate what option they prefer. While EIPS attempts to accommodate each family’s preference, placement depends on enrolment numbers.
Steps to registering your child:
- Go to www.eips.ca/parents/registration.
- Complete the online registration form.
- Determine your child’s designated school.
- Determine your 2018-19 Kindergarten Calendar option preference.
- Scan and upload all required documents—proof of name, residence, date of birth and citizenship.
- Other additional documents to scan, if applicable, include: Guardian Letter and Parental Custody Agreement if restrictions on access.
- Once the online registration is complete and submitted, a confirmation notice is sent to the given email address.
All registrations for the 2018-19 school year must be completed online—printed registrations are no longer available.
To help families prepare, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) has also put together an online toolkit to make the transition as smooth as possible. The kit includes information on registration, important dates, programming options, what to expect, eligibility, how to find your designated school, transportation and more. Find it by visiting www.eips.ca/programs-services/kindergarten.
Campbelltown will also be hosting our Open House for parents on May 30th from 6-7pm. More information to follow.
We look forward to welcoming you to École Campbelltown.
You do not need to submit a boundary exemption request to enrol your child in the French Immersion Kindergarten programs (if attending the designated French Immersion school)

It is very important that you let the office know (either via the website or phone message) if your child is late or away, as we need to follow up with every student who is not here.
PLEASE send emails to “Attendance” on the contact page as this will go to both secretaries. There is a link on the lefthand side of this page.
If you let the office know they can enter it into PowerSchool and the teacher will automatically know. Letting the teacher know as well is helpful, but we need to ensure the office knows in case the teacher is absent and the information is not passed on. Thank you for your help with this.
Feel free to contact the office if you have any questions.
Wellness Day at Campbelltown!
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.
