To meet the needs of a diverse Canadian population Chris D’souza, Equity and Human Right Strategist has put together an interactive workshop to challenge us to think about our bias’s and fully understand the mechanisms that can be used in our day to day interactions to help continually adapt and create a safe environment for our children/students.

We would like to thank all our families and encourage them to continue using our Student Attendance Portal when their child is absent from school. The Board has now made it even easier by including a Smart phone application to use. The app allows parents who have previously “authenticated” their Student Attendance Reporting Portal to use their Android or Apple mobile devices to report absences in addition to the 1‐877‐409‐6310 number and Student Attendance web portal, hdsb.schoolconnects.com.
