School Closed for Summer
Our office will reopen on Aug. 24, 2017. If you have any school-related questions or concerns while the school is closed, contact the Central Office at Elk Island Public Schools at 780-464-3477—the office is open all summer.
Everything we do is about helping children achieve all that they can be. It’s about believing in dreams and building the hope needed to achieve them.
We engage, motivate and inspire by focusing on individual strengths, interests, real-world activities, and building partnerships with our families.
We teach children what they need to have successful futures. Mundare School has been serving our community for over 60 years. Come see and feel the difference.
We are a Kindergarten to Grade Eight School.

Is your child is starting at our school for the first time in the fall? If you haven’t yet registered, there’s still time—simply fill out the Student Registration Form and drop it off at the school when the office reopens on August 24 between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Don't forget to bring with you: proof of residency and the student’s birth certificate.
All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2017-18 school year should have already received a tentative route schedule. Those required to pay applicable transportation fees should have also received a separate invoice outlining payment information—we encourage parents to pay pay fees online.
If you haven’t received a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.
Look for bus passes and any updated route information in your mail in August.
Important Dates and Times
For a complete list of holidays and school-closure days during the 2017-18 school year, refer to the EIPS Division Calendar.
Sync the School Calendar to your personal calendar.
Purchasing school materials? Before you shop, check your child’s School Supply List.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. 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.
Tools for School
If you’re a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies this year, we can help. EIPS has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2017-18 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in kindergarten through Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. When classes resume, we respectfully distribute these backpacks to students who’ve order them. To place an order, contact the EIPS Central Office at 780-464-3477.
