Emergency Lockdown Drill
On November 29th at 1:45 pm, Fultonvale School underwent a Lockdown Drill designed to prepare and practice the actions our school community must take in the event of a real life scenerio. Each of our classes were asked to respond to our Lockdown signal and act accordingly as outlined by our procedures. We would like to thank all of our students and staff for undergoing the drill in a quiet and deliberate manner. Please take some time to discuss the drill with your child and why it's important that we work together to ensure each other's safety during an emergency.

New Fee payment and Powerschool information
New School Fee Invoicing System – ACORN
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) has implemented a new school fee management system, ACORN, to streamline the payment process for parents and school administrators. The new system synchronizes with all aspects of PowerSchool, our division student information system. ACORN also includes a number of features that parents have been requesting, such as online payments.
These new features include:
- Online payment options for parents to pay with Visa and MasterCard.
- The ability to view all students in EIPS and make one payment.
- The ability to make payments when and where you want 24/7.
- One-stop point of contact through the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
- The ability to pay additional field trip fees online throughout the year.
Important dates for families:
- EIPS will send out student fee invoices on September 23.
- Online payment through the Parent Portal will be available starting September 23.
- Fees are due October 31.
- Please note: Fee payments will be applied to educational fees first. Therefore, payments are first applied to the Learning Resource Fee, followed by Non-Core Fees, and finally Non-Instructional Fees.
Accessing the Parent Portal
Previously, the Parent Portal was only available for parents of junior and senior high students. Beginning this year, the Parent Portal enables parents to create a single sign-on for all elementary, junior high, and senior high students in one family. If you have already registered on the Parent Portal with junior and/or senior high students, you will now be able to add your elementary-aged student.
All parents of elementary students and those who are brand new to the division in any grade will receive a letter from the school outlining the information needed to link the elementary student to the existing parent account and/or set up a new parent account. Once the parent account is created, you will not need to create a new account each year. The account information will follow your students as long as they are enrolled in an EIPS school.
If you have difficulty creating a new Parent Portal account, an instructional video is available on the Parent Portal login page at https://powerschool.eips.ca/public/home.html or on the division website at http://www.eips.ca/powerschool.
Please note that at the elementary school level, only student attendance and student fees will be available through the Parent Portal. Ongoing assessment will continue through the eLuminate program outside of PowerSchool.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the school 780-922-3058.
