Proud to be part of Elk Island Public Schools

We Are Back

We are back, the office is open (from 8:30 - 3:30) and we look forward to welcoming our returning families as well as newly registered families.

We are expecting school supplies to arrive on Wednesday. We are not sure what time they will arrive so you may want to call the school before heading over. If you are new to the school or if your child(ren) need to reaquaint themselves with where their new classroom may be, please drop by anytime.

The first day of school is Monday, August 31, 2015.

School information, including forms, calendars, programming, and required supplies can be found on our school website. For more general information or back-to-school details for other EIPS schools, please visit

Registering your Child

If you need to register your child at Ministik School for the 2015–2016 school year you can do so when we return August 24th.

Important Dates and Times

Students in grades 1-6 classes resume Monday, August 31st.

Students in Kindergarten classes begin Tuesday, September 1st.

For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2015–2016 school year please refer to the EIPS division calendar; school-specific dates and activities are available on our school calendar page; and our bell schedule is also available to assist you with any planning.


School Supply Lists

To assist with the purchasing of school materials please go to the School Start Supply Lists in the parent section of our website. These lists are created each year by teachers from each grade and are meant as a recommendation of the supplies your child will need throughout the year. 

Student Transportation

All families using EIPS’ Student Transportation services for the 2015–2016 school year should have already received a tentative route schedule. Those required to pay applicable fees should have also received a separate invoice outlining payment information—we encourage parents to pay fees online. All transportation fees are due June 30, 2015.

 If you have not receive a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, please contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151. Updated route information and bus passes will be mailed to families in August.
