Attendance Rate Reporting
Starting January 24, 2022, you can find information about school closures and staff and student attendance data during the COVID-19 pandemic. Data is published to the provincial platform daily by 10:30 a.m., excluding weekends and public holidays. HWDSB also informs Hamilton Public Health Services (HPHS) any time the daily absences exceed 30 per cent.
School Closure Preparedness and Advisories
Parents and guardians should be prepared in case of a school closure due to a public health concern or challenges with staffing. In these situations, a school may temporarily transition to remote learning and some classes may close if any educator is unavailable. We will notify families using School Messenger. We will give as much notice as possible, although in extreme circumstances, a decision could be made by 7:30 a.m. on the day impacted. School closures will be also be communicated through the HWDSB website.
