Brookville Buzz


Goodbye and Welcome

As many of you know today is Madame Young’s last day.  She is beginning her maternity leave and is expecting at the end of October.   We will miss Madame Young’s passion to engage our intermediate students in the French language.  Best wishes Madame!!


We would like to welcome Mademoiselle Birchall who will support our intermediate French classes until Madame Roundall returns in January.   Mademoiselle Birchall was at Brookville today and the students welcomed her as she visited many of the classrooms that she will be teaching.  Welcome!

Are you NOT receiving Email from Board/School?

Dear Parent/Guardian,  

The Halton District School Board relies heavily on the Home Notification System for communication with parents.  The system, called Synre-Voice (or SchoolConnects), enables the Board and its schools to send messages by telephone or by email to the parent/guardians of our more than 60,000 students.

We have recently learned some parents are not receiving emails.  This includes emails sent by individual schools as well as emails sent by the Halton District School Board.  The problem is difficult to detect because the sender (whether it is your child's school or the Halton District School Board) does not receive a “bounce-back” or “undeliverable mail” message, leading us to believe the messages are being received by the email servers at your email provider.

We are continuing to investigate the problem and have learned it currently appears to be impacting parents who use “Sympatico" and "MSN" as their Internet Service Provider (ISP).  This may be as a result of these ISPs recently strengthening their spam filters which are now filtering out the HDSB messages sent by "SchoolConnects".

How can you get these email messages?
Parents can login to their Parent Student Attendance Portal and find the messages that have been emailed to them.  Here's how:
  • Go to  www.hdsb.schoolconnects.com and login.
  • Click on “Review Messages Sent to You”.  
  • All messages will be found there.  
The pdf below provides some helpful tips for parents/guardians who are not receiving these email messages.  We will continue to investigate the problem and post any new information or helpful tips on the HDSB website at www.hdsb.ca  (under the Parent tab).

It is important to understand this is not a school, Halton District School Board or SchoolConnects problemIt is a problem with your Internet Service Provider.

We encourage parents / guardians to contact their Internet Service Provider (ISP) to help resolve this issue.

Mental health and well-being is everyone's responsibility

posted Apr 28, 2016, 6:40 AM by Robert Periard   [ updated Sep 1, 2017, 7:14 AM by Bev Smith ]

The Halton District School Board has produced a mental health video for parents and guardians as part of its strategy to improve awareness and promote positive mental health and well-being.  The two-minute video is linked from the main page of the Board’s website at www.hdsb.ca  (Mental Health and Well-being) as well as posted on YouTube and on HDSB TV for staff.

Parking Lot Reminders

posted Apr 28, 2016, 6:34 AM by Robert Periard   [ updated Sep 1, 2017, 7:14 AM by Bev Smith ]

Just a friendly reminder to our parents and caregivers that when dropping off or picking up your students before and after school, to please use the Kiss and Ride area only. With all of the buses arriving, it is too unsafe for students to walk across the parking lot. As well, this allows our buses to have easy access, so they can drop off our students safely. Thanks for your attention to this!

Attendance Line Reminders

posted Apr 28, 2016, 6:29 AM by Robert Periard   [ updated Sep 1, 2017, 7:14 AM by Bev Smith ]

Please call the school attendance line at 1-877-409-6310 or go to hdsb.schoolconnects.com before 8:20 a.m. to inform the school that your child will be absent or late.  A note or call from the parent is necessary if the student must leave the school during the day.  Students arriving or leaving during the day must sign in or out at the proper time in the office.
