How classrooms are implementing HDSB's 2020-2024 Multi-Year Plan

Last year, the HDSB proudly released a series of videos highlighting our 2020-2024 Multi-Year Strategic Plan, where we explained the framework of this important document and why it guides everything we do This year, we are excited to bring you another series of videos designed to bring the Multi-Year Plan into greater focus. We will be taking a closer and deeper look at the classroom level, showing how each of the five areas of focus in the Multi-Year Plan are integrated and implemented into everyday instruction.

Inclement Weather Reminders

With cooler weather approaching, we are writing to provide you with information on how decisions are made on days of inclement weather. If your child is bused to school, please ensure that you know which transportation zone you are located in.

In case of inclement weather, the decision to close schools and/or cancel buses is communicated beginning at 6:30 a.m. We use a variety of methods to communicate this important information including the SchoolMessenger email system, social media, TV, radio, the HDSB website and the HDSB Mobile App. We encourage all families to review the HDSB Inclement Weather Reminders. A printable version of this information is also available.

Please note that when schools are closed due to inclement weather, both in-person and virtual schools will be closed and remote learning will not be provided. This is to ensure student and staff safety and to continue to provide an equitable learning experience for all students.
