Reporting Student Absences

posted Sep 21, 2016, 8:57 AM by Jennifer Feke   [ updated Sep 21, 2016, 8:58 AM ]

George Kennedy PS  is LIVE with the School Connects Attendance system.  Please call 1-877-409-6310 before 9:30 AM  or log onto hdsb.schoolconnects.com to report any late arrival or absence for your student by clicking on the "Report Absence"  button (looks like a student desk) on our home page. The system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To report a late arrival, use the absence prompt and continue from there.

If you do not report your child absent or late before 9:30 AM, the automated system will follow up and call you. If you call after 9:30 the system will only take an absence or late report for the following day and beyond.

Each elementary school, within the Halton District School Board, has a safe arrival process to help ensure the well being of our students. One important structure to ensure safe arrival is the absence check that takes place daily. In collaborating with parents/guardians we are able to provide a safety network for our students and we appreciate parent support.
