In September 2018, the HDSB will transition to a new Student Absence Reporting System called SchoolMessenger.  ​This is the system used for reporting student absences and receiving all messages and phone calls from your child's school and the HDSB. In August 2018, families will receive instructions on how to register for SchoolMessenger. All families must register for SchoolMessenger to report student absences online. You can access the SchoolMessenger website by clicking on the Messages and Absences button at the top of our website. Your options for Reporting Student Absences are: HDSB Mobile App​ (available for download from the App Store and Google Play), Website:​, Phone: 1-877-409-6310 (toll-free).
