TRANSPORTATION FOR LOGOS STUDENTS IN THE ELK ISLAND SCHOOL DISTRICT
Within Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS), the Logos Program falls under the scope of an Alternative Program and therefore students enrolled in this program are deemed to be attending a School of Choice. Transportation for School of Choice students may be available, but a School of Choice busing fee will apply. If the student lives less than 2.4 km from both the Logos Program school he/she is attending and his/her designated school, a Payride fee may also apply for transportation services.
School of Choice and Payride fee information is available at www.eips.ca/student-tran#TransportationFees.
For further information or to find out if busing is available from your home address to your Logos Program school, please contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151. Information is also available at www.eips.ca/student-tran.
1. How does EIPS know when I want to access transportation services for my child?
Once a student is registered in a Logos Program school, parents/guardians must contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151 to inquire about transportation availability and to request these services. Parents/guardians will be notified of any applicable fees at that time.
2. How do I find my child’s designated school? How do I know how far away I live from my designated school?
Parents/guardians can determine their child’s designated school using the online Versatrans e-Link tool (http://www.eips.ca/versatrans-e-link). After inputting the child’s grade and home address, the system will provide the child’s designated school and the distance from the home address to the school.
3. How do I know how far away I live from my Logos Program school?
When parents/guardians contact Student Transportation to inquire about transportation availability, transportation staff will advise if the distance between the home address and the Logos Program school is less than 2.4 km.
4. When will I know how much I owe in student transportation fees?
Parents/guardians who have registered their child in the Logos Program and contacted Student Transportation to request transportation services will receive an invoice from EIPS in April for the following school year’s fees.
5. When are transportation fees due?
Student Transportation fees are due June 30 of the year prior to the one in which the services are requested.
