EICS Sends Prayers and Offer of Assistance To Fort McMurray

Posted May 4, 2016

Elk Island Catholic Schools are standing in unity with residents of Fort McMurray who are dealing with unbelievable heartbreak due to the recent fires which have devastated their community.

Please know that we are here to help in any way - whether it is to find accommodation with the many people in our division who will open their homes or certainly for students who are looking for available schools to finish off their educational year.  We are here for you.

In order to help during this very challenging time of displacement, we will be waiving all school fees and not impeding the process with the need for school documentation. Simply call us at the EICS board office or go directly to a school that may be in your transition area and we will work with you and your family throughout  the process. 

Please call us at 780 449-7487 or Toll Free: 1-800-996-9982 or email our communications office at susan.johnson@eics.ab.ca
