To book your interview times Click Here
Go to http://www.schoolinterviews.ca/, enter the school code jut2z (all lower case) and follow the screen prompts
You will need to enter an e-mail address to receive confirmation of your conferences.
At this time you will be able to book conferences for both evenings. You will not be allowed to schedule any conferences before that time.
You will need to enter your son’s/daughter’s name, the class, and teacher with which you would like to schedule a conference. You are limited to one conference time per teacher. Each conference is 10 minutes in length. If your son/daughter has a particular teacher for more than one subject, please just book one 10 minute time slot. If you need more time with a teacher, please arrange a separate meeting or phone call.
Please do not schedule your conferences “back-to-back”. Instead, allow 10 minutes between conferences. This provides “transition time” as you travel from one classroom to another and allows the conferences to stay on schedule. For example, if you book one conference at 5:20 pm, please do not book your next conference until 5:40 pm. Once your conference is finished at 5:30, you will have the necessary time to proceed to the next conference.
We suggest you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your first conference so that you can see which rooms you will be going to for all of your conferences. We will have a school map and students to help you find the correct room.

2018-19 EIPS Parent Survey: We Want to Hear from You
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is committed to ensuring all parents and guardians of students within the Division have a chance to share their thoughts on the overall performance of their school and the Division. One of the ways EIPS ensures its parents’ voices are heard is by conducting an annual parent survey.
Ardrossan Jr. Sr. encourages all parents and guardians to take a few minutes to complete the brief online survey. It will only take a few minutes and will help to supplement the Division’s Accountability Pillar Survey data. Plus, new this year, the survey includes questions about cellphones and personal devices. Your feedback will help the EIPS Board of Trustees develop a policy about cellphones and their use within the school.
Survey closes March 29
The feedback gathered will help the Division measure its progress towards meeting the goals and priorities outlined in the EIPS 2018-22 Four-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve its students and the wider community.
NOTE: The survey is anonymous and only takes a few minutes to complete. If you want to share the experience of more than one child attending an EIPS school, simply complete the survey again.
Thank you for your participation.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: STUDENT PARKING
Please do not sit in vehicles during the lunch hour or breaks, as there is not adequate supervision for students to be doing so. If you are going to your car at lunch, it is intended that you are doing so to leave school property. Students can take advantage of seating and healthy lunch options in the school cafeteria or grad hall. There are also intramurals and clubs running during the lunch hour.
This will be monitored and enforced starting Monday Nov 26th, 2018.
Thank you for understanding.
