New Online Enrolment Process for 2018-2019 School Year

Our Central office sent out an email communication to all EIPS families on Monday, February 12th with information regarding the enrolment process in a school for the upcoming school year. This process asks families to indicate the school their child plans to attend; apply to attend a non-designated school, if applicable; and update any required student information—such as phone numbers, addresses and emergency contacts.

If circumstances change, families also have the ability to update their child’s data at any time throughout the year. This eliminates the need for the Correction Forms that were sent home with students each September.

To be considered for a non-designated school in 2018-19, you must make that request through the pre-enrolment process between March 1 and 15, 2018. The pre-enrolment process eliminates the annual Boundary Exemption Request Process. Now, returning student families who want to apply to enrol their child at a non-designated school can do so through the pre-enrolment process—acceptance is based on available space. Some EIPS schools have closed boundaries because of high enrolment numbers and will not accept non-designated students for the 2018-19 school year.

Elk Island Public Schools' website also has some information regarding the new enrolment process. Link below.

EIPS Streamlines Registration, Information Updates and Requests to Attend Non-Designated Schools

French Immersion Information Night

Is your child currently enrolled in French Immersion? Or are you interested in learning more about the program in junior high and high school?

Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is holding an Information Night on Wednesday, February 28, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. (Doors open at 5:30 p.m.) at Ardrossan Junior/Senior High to talk about EIPS’ Secondary French Immersion programs.

Principals from Sherwood Heights Junior High and Ardrossan Junior/Senior High will be presenting information on:

  • How does the French immersion program work in secondary
  • The benefits of a French Immersion education
  • The importance of staying in the program from elementary through high school
  • How do parents who don’t speak French support their children in French Immersion

Students and families are welcome! Parking is available adjacent to the school (53129 Range Road 222, Ardrossan AB). For more information, please contact M.J.

Registration Information Evening

Parents/students new to Sherwood Heights for the 2018-2019 school year are welcome to attend our registration information evening on Wednesday, April 11th from 7:00-8:30 p.m.  This is an open house style event with no formal program - come and go as you are able. The intent of the evening is to allow students and parents to visit all programs offered at SWH to help make final decisions about specific course requests for the fall.
