2014-2015 School Year Information
Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,
We have an exciting year planned at Salisbury Composite High School as we look forward to welcoming new and returning students for 2014/2015. We also welcome our new principal, Mrs. Cathy Allen.
Remember to return your school forms to Salisbury on on the first day of school.
Senior High students new to Sherwood Park and living within our attendance boundaries are asked to call the school to make appointments for registration.
Thank you to all EIPS’ families for a great first year using the ACORN Online Quick Pay system via the Parent Portal to pay school and transportation fees.
All 2014-2015 school fee information will be available in the system at the beginning of September. Login to your Parent Portal account (https://powerschool.eips.ca/public/home.html) to access the ACORN online payment system, and visit www.eips.ca/fees for more information and a complete list of key dates.
PLEASE NOTE: Junior high and senior high fees may change as courses are added and deleted. The course change deadline is September 12, 2014. Please also be aware that during the school year fees may be added to your child’s account(e.g., field trip fees, athletic team fees. Etc.). Be sure to check your account often throughout the year in case new fees are added.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s fees, or if you are new to the school and need assistance, please contact Christine Lee or Karen Schlegl at 780-467-8816.
All families using EIPS’ student transportation (http://www.eips.ca/student-tran) services for 2014/2015 should have received tentative route information in May.

Tools For School
Tools for School Supplies Available for Students
Do you need help to give your children the basic tools they need to succeed in school? Look no further than the United Way’s Tools for School program. Salisbury Composite High School is participating in the 2014-2015 Tools for School campaign.
Tools for School is a United Way initiative providing families who may have limited resources with essential school supplies to help students achieve success in their studies. A number of backpacks filled with supplies have arrived at our school for students who might need support this year. Contact the Salisbury office at 780-467-8816 to request a backpack.
If you have the resources available to prepare your own children, why not help out other students in
need? Click here for more information.
2014-2015 Student Transportation Fees and Payment Process
Elk Island Public Schools’ (EIPS) Board of Trustees has approved student transportation fees for the
2014-2015 school year, and families are now able to pay Student Transportation fees through ACORN,
which is the same process that has been used this year for school fees. ACORN is accessible through the
Parent Portal of PowerSchool or Student Quick Pay. This system replaces the online transportation fee
payment process previously housed on the division website. This is great news for parents as you will
now be able to pay all school-related fees in one centralized area.
Video Monitoring on School Buses
In accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP Act), Section 33 and in conjunction with the enforcement of Student Transportation bus rules, video monitoring equipment is in place on all Elk Island Public Schools' (EIPS) buses. Video/audio recordings of individuals on buses are for the safety and security of all passengers, drivers, and property, and may be used as evidence in a disciplinary matter.
If you have any questions about the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information, please contact EIPS’ FOIP Coordinator, 683 Wye Road, Sherwood Park, AB T8B 1N2 780-417-8204.
