School Absenteeism Surveillance Program

Each school is asked to submit a daily report by noon of the number of students who are absent (including those both with influenza symptoms and those without). Your reports will better prepare us for our upcoming flu season.

For high schools, report the number of students absent based on first period numbers.


Report your School Absences

Type in your School Name


Or, Upload Excel File (District School Board of Niagara Only)

Only approved Excel templates can be uploaded.

Having an Absentee Rate Greater than 15%

You will receive a call from a Public Health Nurse if your absentee rate is greater than 15%.

You may also have a visit from a Public Health Inspector to review infection prevention and control measures (e.g., hand hygiene; environmental cleaning).
