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.
