For Your Information

Report Cards
Semester 1 report cards have now been published on Edsby, and students will also bring home a printed final report card today. These reports represent a lot of work by both students and staff. We trust that, as you read them, you’ll get a taste of the cultivation of character that is happening through learning at HDCH.

Here are a couple of notes on how to view the reports online.

  1. Log in to Edsby
    Please email us or call us at 905-648-6655 if you need any assistance with this. (And if one of your children is missing from your Edsby account, please contact us and we’ll help you get connected to them.)
  2. click the “View Report Cards” button under the list of your child’s Classes (on the left-hand side of the page).
  3. A window will open showing an Ontario Report Card view. It should be the “2017-2018 Semester 1 Final Report.” If not, you can select the correct Report from the drop-down menu in the top right-hand corner.
    The Report Card will include learning skills, a personalized comment from each teacher, and a grade.
  4. For first semester classes, the students’ final grade is the “percentage mark” in the 2nd reporting period. For full-year courses — like Grade 10 Venture — the mark in the 2nd reporting period is a midterm.

We appreciate our continued partnership as together we support your child’s growth and learning.

Vaccination Reporting

Hamilton Public Health is working to ensure that they have up-to-date vaccination records for all students who attend schools in the City of Hamilton. This year, they are focusing on children born in 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004.

As parents, it is your responsibility to report your child’s vaccine history to Public Health by January 31, 2018. Here’s how to report. Please note that as of September 1, 2017, there are some new requirements related to non-medical vaccine exemptions. If your child has a non-medicinal exemption, please make sure you are aware of these requirements. Any questions you have should be directed to Hamilton Public Health.

Be aware that students who do not have a complete vaccine history or who do not have an official letter of exemption on file by February 26, 2018 may be suspended as per the Immunization of School Pupils Act. Please ensure you take care of this before the deadline; we much prefer our students to be in school!

Thanks in advance for your attention to this matter.
