HSDC COVID-19 Notification Form
COVID Notification

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:

  • 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
Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms. You can find out more from NHS Online.

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.

To begin, please enter your student reference number (from your student card) and date of birth below.
