Elementary Student Attendance System

At the Halton District School Board each elementary school has a safe arrival process.  One important structure to ensure safe arrival is the absence check that takes place daily.  In collaborating with parents/guardians we are able to provide a safety network for our students. 

The Halton District School Board is working to improve our existing Absence Check process.   The goal of this new system is to provide an accountability measure that will reduce student attendance verification time and therefore allow immediate response to unaccounted for absences of students.

To accomplish our goal, during the last two years, we introduced new technology to most of our elementary schools.  Many, but not all, of our Elementary Schools use the new “Elementary Student Attendance” system. 

Parents/Guardians call 1-877-409-6310 or log on to the hdsb.schoolconnects.com website to report their child's absence or late arrival to school. This system leads parents/guardians through the process of reporting the absence of their elementary child.  This system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Future absences can be reported at any time.


If you are having problems using this system, please contact your school for assistance.
