COVID-19 Advisory (www.hdsb.ca)
The HDSB online COVID-19 Advisory provides the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases that are connected to our schools. For all confirmed cases, families of students in the class or cohort and staff at the school will be notified by email. Parents/guardians should check the COVID-19 Advisory for the most up to date information for their child’s school.
Note: Beginning September 2021, the HDSB will only notify parents/guardians
in the impacted classroom/cohort (not the entire school) of a confirmed case of COVID-19.
COVID-19 School Screening Tool
Parents/guardians (and students 18+) must complete the Government of Ontario's online
COVID-19 school screening tool for each child prior to them attending school each day. Please follow the guidance in the screening tool. This screening tool is also accessible via the HDSB Mobile App.
Additionally, from Sept 7-17, students are required to show verification of daily screening , as directed by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Verification can be printed or shown electronically, as directed by your school.
