2024-25 School Year Start-Up 

On Monday, August 26, a SchoolMessenger email will be sent to all HWDSB families to inform them that Parent Portal is officially open for the start of the new school year. 

At that time, families can view their child’s classroom teacher for elementary and student timetables for secondary. All HWDSB school offices will be open on this date to support questions.   

Kindergarten families will receive an email once their Parent Portal account is created. Families will also receive information about when their child will attend their first day of Kindergarten. 

Students with disabilities, along with their families, have a chance to transition into their new school before the first day. Families of students who access additional supports can contact their school during the week of August 26 to arrange a brief visit to their school and classroom. 

We hope you have a safe and happy summer! HWDSB staff look forward to welcoming students and families back for the first day of the 2024-25 school year on Tuesday, September 3
