School Buses Running
All bus routes are scheduled to run this afternoon. Unfortunately, EIPS is unable to provide service to Antler Lake at this time. NOTE: Possible route delays may occur subject to road conditions.
School fee information is now available on your PowerSchool Parent Portal. An invoice was sent home with all students on Wednesday, September 27th.
Fees are due within 30-days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
