Niverville Elementary School Classroom Placement
The following criteria are considered when making class placements:
- Equal distribution of ability levels
- Balance of dependent and independent learners
- Social connections and dynamics between students
- Positive student leadership abilities
- Male/Female numbers
- Twins, siblings, and new students to the school
- Special learning needs of individual students
The staff will take all information and balance classes to form the best possible learning groups. They will operate for the benefit of students, while taking into account individual needs, based on relevant information. We believe the overriding consideration at all times must be the learning environment for all members of the class. Your child’s placement will be written on the June report card. We realize and acknowledge there might be some students who may be initially concerned with their classroom placement. Our hope is to provide a stimulating environment that keeps your child engaged intellectually, emotionally, socially, and academically. We recognize that your child’s peers and friends may have an impact on their ability to remain engaged in the classroom content. With this in mind, we encourage you to talk about your child’s peers with them and about who they feel would be great learning partners for them. Please remember that there are many factors that are consider when making a class list and teachers will have a large say in the final student groupings. Friendships that work well at home and on the playground are not always best suited for the classroom. If you are comfortable leaving this decision up to the discretion of the school team there is no need to complete the form that is link below. If you would like to put forward a request, please complete the form through the link below and return it to the school by May 21, 2021.
Any requests regarding class placements need to be emailed to Mrs. Beaudin firstname.lastname@example.org by May 21st.
Thank you for your continued trust and support as we determine next year’s classes.

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
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 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!

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.
