Kindergarten Registration

Do you have a child starting school in Fall 2021? We are now accepting registrations for Junior (Year 1) and Senior (Year 2) Kindergarten for September 2021. Parents/guardians are asked to register their child by Feb. 5, 2021. If Palermo is your home school, please email bergena@hdsb.ca to register.
Learn more on the HDSB website.


Student Census

The HDSB is conducting a Student Census throughout the winter of 2021 as required by the Anti-Racism Act, 2017 and Ontario’s Education Equity Action Plan. Students in Grade 4 - 12 will complete the electronic census independently during provided class time. For students in Kindergarten to Grade 3, parent(s)/guardian(s) will complete the census on behalf of their child.


It is important that the Student Census reflects the voices of all students, therefore the more responses we receive, the more effective the data will be to help inform and improve programming and learning environments. The Student Census is voluntary and students and parents/guardians can skip any question they do not want to answer. If you have concerns about your child’s participation, please email studentcensus@hdsb.ca.


For additional information, please view the recording of the virtual HDSB Student Census Information Session held on Dec. 8, 2020 as well as the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the Student Census webpage for detailed information.



We send 'Updates From Palermo' via email to Parents and Guardians every week. Check our Newsletter page for past updates.
