COVID-19 Current Situation

The Ministry of Health encourages schools/school boards to monitor their absence rates and collaborate with their local Public Health Unit should the absence rate increase above what a school would typically experience and are not linked to other factors. Halton schools can continue to submit absenteeism rates through the Absenteeism Online Reporting for Schools/Childcare/Camps tool. If you do not have online access, please call 311 for assistance.
