Planning for Back To School
We have had an exciting year at Ministik School and we’re looking forward to welcoming new and returning students for 2014-2015.
Ministik School is now closed for the summer but will reopen again on August 25, 2014 at 9:00 am. Please visit the school between 9 am and 3:30 pm to complete a registration process for your children if you are not already registered at our school for this coming school year.
Browse through our website for registration, calendar, program, and other information to help you plan for next year. For general information about back to school throughout Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS), visit the division website at www.eips.ca in August.
First day of Class
On Tuesday, September 2 following the long weekend, all grades will be starting school. Kindergarten will have an orientation. Check out the EIPS 2014-2015 Calendar for a complete list of holidays and school closure days for 2014-2015. Our 2014-15 Ministik Bell Schedule is also available to assist you in planning appointments for your children.
As you prepare for back to school this fall, please refer to the Parent Page to access our supply lists to ensure your children have everything they need for the first day back in the classroom.
All families using EIPS’ student transportation services for 2014-2015 should have received tentative route information in May. Those required to pay applicable fees should have received a separate invoice outlining payment information. We encourage parents to pay their fees online. All transportation fees were due on June 30, 2014, so we encourage you to pay your fees as soon as possible.
If you did not receive a letter from Student Transportation in the spring or have moved and would like to inquire about busing for your children for next year, please contact Student Transportation as soon as possible at 780-417-8151. Updated route information and bus passes will be mailed out in August.
