Sixer Update – November 14, 2022

Here are some things to note for the upcoming month:

Report Cards

Report cards will be posted on the Parent Portal on Friday, November 18th at 1:00pm.

Parent Teacher Interviews

Parent/Teacher conferences will be taking place on Wednesday, November 23 from 4:10-7:00. Teachers will be available for short, 10-minute conversations regarding your child. Teachers will be stationed in their homerooms and additional staff will be around to direct you to the room you are looking for. If you have booked an appointment, please arrive a little early so you can find their class on time to make the most of the time you have. 

To book an appointment, you may go online to the Parent Portal to schedule a meeting or call Ms. Nicolle in our office at 204-355-4020 or There may not be space and availability to get an appointment with each one of your child’s teachers. Consider booking with only the ones of most concern or just a homeroom teacher.

If making an in-person appointment for that day does not work, feel free to call Ms. Nicolle or reach out to the teacher directly to book an alternative time for a phone call.

Winter Weather

You can find school cancellation and bus delay information on the HSD website at  It’s important that any student riding the bus have a warm jacket and gloves if the bus becomes inoperative while on route.
