You can use this form to notify HSDC that you (or your son or daughter) will be absent from college for COVID-19 related reasons. This includes having symptoms, testing positive for COVID, self-isolating due to household members showing symptoms, being instructed to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace or having returned from an overseas or UK lockdown area.
The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:
Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms. You can find out more from NHS Online.
- a high temperature - this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough - this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste - this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
After reporting your COVID status using this service we will send a confirmation email to you (and to your parents if you are aged under 18). You should not use this process for reporting an absence from College for a non-COVID related reason.
