Returning Student Registration
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) will once again conduct an online returning student registration process to confirm student registrations for the 2019-20 school year. Families of all returning students will need to complete this process to confirm the school their children will attend for the 2019-20 school year, and to request to attend a non-designated school, if applicable. Returning student registration will take place at the same time as all registrations for the 2019-20 school year: Feb. 1-28, 2019.
Access to the Returning Student Registration Form is provided through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If you don’t have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, you will need to set one up before Feb. 1, 2019.
To create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account:
- Go to https://powerschool.eips.ca/public/.
- Click the button labelled, “Create Account.”
- Enter the parent or guardian information. Each account must have a unique email address and username—only one parent account is required regardless of the number of children you have attending EIPS schools.
- Create a username and password of your choice—you’ll need both the username and password to log in to your PowerSchool Parent Portal.
- You must have an Access ID and Access Password for each student that is added to your account. Contact your child’s school to obtain this information.
- Press “Enter.”
If you have any problems setting up the PowerSchool Parent Portal account, contact your child’s school for further assistance.

Milk Program at DCE
DCE will be welcoming a Milk Program to our school. We are currently in need of parent volunteers to help run this program. This program will be run with the help of a teacher and the grade 5/6s. We need a few parents to be able to attend at lunchtime and help with distribution. We should only need one parent per day, so if there is only one day that works for you, we can assign different days to different parents. Please e-mail communicationsDCE@gmail.com if you're interested.
DCE Running Club
Run practices are as follows:
Tuesday lunch recess
Friday lunch recess
Wednesday after school from 3:20 to 4 pm EXCEPT for early dismissal days until February 13.
The run at the Butterdome will be on Tuesday, February 19 during the day. There will be a nominal charge associated with this race. More information to come.
Semi-finals and finals will be on Saturday, March 16 at the Butterdome.
