Rail Safety

Sept 20-26 was National Rail Safety Week in Canada. As a community with railway access, it is important that we are aware of safety precautions to take near tracks. Teachers were provided with resources from the CP Police Services to educate NES students about rail safety.

You can visit the CP Railsense or Operation Lifesaver Canada to review rail safety with your children.

Staying hydrated - Need Water Bottles

Please remember to send a reusable water bottle to school with your child. We purchased refillable bottles for all of our NES students last year. We would encourage your children to bring those back to school if they can. Our drinking fountains are currently closed and we only have access to water filling stations. If a student forgets their water bottle, parents will be contacted to see if they are able to bring one to the school.

Lost and Found Tour

Here are the items left in our Lost and Found in September. It will be cleaned out next Friday. Claim any items that are yours. The Lost and Found is located just inside our front doors by the office.

**Friendly Reminder to label your child's clothing as we check for labels and do our best to return those to their owns before cleaning out the Lost and Found

NES is a 'Nut Aware" School

There are children in our school who have a severe allergy to peanuts and tree nuts. Exposure to even a tiny amount of this item could be potentially serious and life-threatening. We can all play a role in preventing such a dangerous and frightening situation at school. For this reason, we are a "Nut Aware" school. We do not describe the school as being "Nut Free" because we can't guarantee that students or adults have not brought nuts or traces of nuts into the building. Please help us keep all our students safe by checking the list of ingredients on items you send to school and avoid sending items that contain peanuts.

Zones of Regulation Parent Intro

Parents, you may here teachers talk about Zones of Regulation or your child come home and refer to a particular "zone" they are in. Below is a video with a simple explanation of the Zones of Regulation. We use this coloured zone scale with NES students to give pictures and language that help students identify how their brains and bodies are feeling. If you watch to the end of the video there are some great book suggestions for getting students familiar with talking about their feelings and self-regulation.
Zones of Regulation video for children. Learn about feelings and emotions.


The HSD Parent Portal is a communication tool designed to enhance and increase parent/guardian involvement in the education of their children by providing secure online access to their child's student information. With a single username and password, you can access data for each of your children attending an HSD school. The Access IDs along with setup instructions have been sent via email to all eligible parents/guardians of new students. If you are new to NES and did not receive the specified email, please contact the school office at 204-388-4861.

Please take a few minutes to review the student information and contact information for your child. It is important that the school has current address and contact information for your child in case it is necessary to reach someone during the school day. Changes can be made through the parent portal.
