The Halton District School Board is committed to providing timely, effective communication to parents and/or guardians and students concerning school-related issues.
All elementary and secondary schools use an automated system, called SchoolConnects, for the following purposes:
Report a Student Absent
Calling Toll free 1-877-409-6310
Online at hdsb.schoolconnects.com
Mobile app - ‘Get SafeArrival’ from either Google Play or Apple app stores
Notify parents of school-related information by email or telephone
The Halton District School Board relies heavily on the SchoolConnects system as a notification system for communication with parents. The system enables the school Principal/Vice-principal to send messages primarily by email (but also by telephone) to parent/guardians.
Parents are asked to provide their child’s school with a current email address and telephone number for these types of messages.
Parents may opt out/subscribe/unsubscribe
of this notification system, however, they will still receive emails/telephone calls for unexplained classroom absences and emergencies.
