We hope your summer has been enjoyable, and we are looking forward to welcoming your child(ren) to school on August 15, 2023! The following information will be beneficial as we look to the start of the 2023-2024 school year. Please review the information in-depth to ensure all requested tasks are completed.
EPS utilizes an online registration system for parents of returning students in grades K-12 to update information and complete all Back-to-School registration information. To use this feature, parents/guardians need access to a PowerSchool parent account. If you do not have a parent PowerSchool account, instructions for creating one can be found at https://bit.ly/EPSps1. On Tuesday, August 1, you will receive an email from PowerSchool alerting you to the opening of the Online Registration process. If you are unable to access your PowerSchool parent account or do not receive the email on August 1, please contact your child’s school for assistance.
Please note that we are continuing to clean up our contact database which includes consolidating duplicate parent and emergency contact entries. Knowing that, please make sure that only your student(s) is connected to your PowerSchool account. If you notice anything irregular about your PowerSchool account, please contact your school. As part of this process, we will also require all parent/guardian contacts to include a middle name or middle initial moving forward.
*Students, including all Preschool and Kindergarten students, who completed the New Student Registration process will not receive an email regarding the opening of Online Registration as they do not need to redo the online registration process.*
All EPS middle and high schools utilize rSchool for athletics registration. To complete this process, please visit https://elkhornps-ar.rschooltoday.com/. If you have any questions or need assistance with Athletics registration, please contact your assigned high school’s Athletics Department.
*Online athletics registration must be completed by the first day of practice in order to be able to participate.*
EPS uses SchoolPay for online payment of activity fees, device coverage, lunch funds, and other payments. Instructions for creating an account and using SchoolPay can be found here: https://bit.ly/EPSpay.
*Note: Payment for Device Coverage must be received no later than September 1 or coverage will not be provided.
