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

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.

Please be advised that Pineland Public School is currently closed due to the Province of Ontario four-week province-wide shutdown. School will reopen to in-person learners on Monday, January 11 2021. We are working remotely and staff can be reached by email.

For information on the Ontario school closure, please visit:

If you are new to the Halton District School Board and wish to register your child(ren) for school, please visit:

While in-person schools are closed, we encourage families to continue to check for updates from us and the HDSB through email (SchoolMessenger),, and the Board’s social media pages (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram).

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

In Partnership,

Pineland Public School Staff
