School Messenger

Our school has begun using a service called School Messenger. This service allows us to send out important information regarding the SHDHS community either by phone, email, or text message. It is important that these three contact methods are updated and are correct in our database so that information can be sent to you. Please contact the school if you know that your contact information is not up to date.

Also, if you did not opt into the text messaging service from School Messenger when you received the original welcome text message, then you will not receive any text messages from the school with regards to important school based information. 

Fianlly, we sent out an email with information about an upcoming survey happening in our school. If you did not receive that email, please check your spam folder to see if it went in there. We sent out an SMS at the same time. If you did not receive that text message, then either our phone records are not accurate or you blocked the service after the initial welcome message from School Messenger.

Please contact the school if you have any questions about School Messenger.


On November 8 secondary students at SHDHS will be participating in a survey. The survey was created by researchers from the University of Waterloo. Consent will be assumed unless you notify us otherwise. The parent/guardian information letter can be found below with more information on the survey, as well as some contact information if you do not wish for your child to participate.
