Staples School Supplies

NES is once again partnering with Staples to offer school supply packages. This is a way for families to purchase supplies without having to go into the store. It is all completed online and shipped directly to the school or your home. More information will be coming in next month's newsletter.

NO Pokemon Cards

Please remind your child to keep their Pokemon cards at home. We do not want trading to be occurring at school. In the past, we have set up a "Pokemon Club" that involved students in Gr 3 & 4 at noon recess, which was supervised by a teacher to ensure fairness in trading. This club has not been set up at this time and therefore no cards should be coming to school

Pink Shirt Day is April 9 at NES

2021-22 Kindergarten Registration/Orientation

Thank you to those of you who have registered your kindergarteners for the upcoming school year. Stay tuned in April for more information regarding how kindergarten orientation will work this year.


If you have not registered your child for kindergarten for the 2021-22 school year please do so. To be eligible, children must be five years of age on or before December 31, 2021. More information will be available on the Hanover website at the beginning of February.



Registration will be online at www.hsd.ca. Anyone who does not have access to the Internet should visit the school office.


Parents and guardians are encouraged to register their children as early as possible. This assists us in planning and preparation. Registering earlier will ensure there is sufficient time for school appointments and provide opportunity to participate in orientation activities.

April Lost and Found

Crosswalk Safety /Parking

A friendly reminder to look out for the safety of our students and staff at the Pedestrian Corridor on Main Street. Below are the Pedestrian Corridor Driver responsibilities as written in the MPI Driver's Handbook

Pedestrian Corridors

These feature large, illuminated overhead signs, with alternating flashing amber lights on top. Large rectangular bars are painted on the crossing.

As a driver

• It’s illegal to pass traffic ahead of you that is slowing down or has stopped for pedestrians.

• Make sure the pedestrians have safely crossed the street or have safely reached the median of a divided roadway before proceeding.

• No parking or stopping is allowed within 15 metres of a pedestrian corridor


We have been placing pylons out during crosswalk times to indicate the 15 m spacing that should be left between cars and the Pedestrian Corridor. If you are turning left onto Main Street from 4th Ave South, you will need to yield to the cars stopped at the crosswalk and not turn in front.


Parking

Parking in the area by the crosswalk (with painted curbs and signage) is not permitted.


Thank you for helping us get students safely to and from school!

Religious Exercises at NES

School religious exercises/instruction will commence at such a time and in such a manner that logistical requirements related to the pandemic can be addressed.

PARENT PORTAL/STUDENT INFORMATION

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.
