We are excited to inform you that Edsby has been in our school for 2 years now. Many of our parents have already joined our Edsby online link. Edsby will allow you to have better access to information about your own child and will empower you to have richer and more engaging conversations at home, which will ultimately assist your child academically. Edsby pulls together up-to-the-minute information about each of your children and presents it in a clear, easy to understand and comprehensive format. You can see their attendance and if posted by their teacher, their assigned homework, classroom calendar, and the specifics of what they’re being taught in each class each day.
Edsby keeps everything safe and secure within the confines of our school, meaning there is no opportunity for anyone from the outside world “allowed in”. If you wish to contact your child’s teacher or have any questions about your child, we encourage you to still make a phone call to the school.
Our future goal is to make Edsby a convenient application to visit in order to keep up to date on your child’s school information and progress. The teachers and students are using this tool within the classroom and depending on the class, parents will see a variance in use. Because your username will be your email address, only those who have provided their email address to the school office will be invited to Edsby at this time. Parents who have not provided their email address will be given other opportunities to provide their email address to the school. As more email addresses are provided, invitations will be sent out at that time for parents to join Edsby. Edsby provisions each parent/guardian with their own account so we encourage you to ensure we have your email address if you wish to access Edsby. (Please note if you are a staff member of the GECDSB, you should not use your “publicboard.ca” account when the in parent/guardian role for Edsby.)
You will be sent the log information with an auto generated password which you may customize upon sign up. Be sure to watch your junk email box as the invite may be delivered there. If you have more than one child attending our schools, you can use the same information to log in and see information for all of your children.
