HDSB mobile app
The Halton District School Board is excited to announce the launch of its mobile app that 
consolidates important information for parents, guardians and students into one easy-to-access location. The free app is available for download on the App Store and Google Play (search “Halton District School Board” or “HDSB”).  The app, a pilot project since the fall at four Burlington schools, is being rolled out to all 105 elementary and secondary schools in the Halton District School Board this week during Education Week (May 7-11). This video details the app set-up process and features. During the setup process, users will be prompted to “subscribe” to individual schools. This means you are able to customize the news you receive by choosing which schools you would like to see information from, in addition to updates from the Halton District School Board. 
Through a simple tap of the app, parents/guardians gain access to a series of icons containing helpful and timely school information and resources, such as:
• Reporting student absences
• School news and calendar feeds from your child’s school
• Transportation information and updates
• School Cash Online
• Notifications about school closures and bus cancellations
• Access to school and Board news including media releases, school stories and videos
• Links to Board and school social media pages
• All school contact information including maps to schools 
We encourage all parents/guardians to download the new app to stay up to date with school and Board news. Feedback can be provided by emailing
