Absence Declaration Forms

FIFSW and the University of Toronto respects the privacy of all students, staff and faculty. As this is a potentially heightened time of stress, we would like to emphasize the importance of confidentiality. It is essential that we avoid stigmatization and discrimination within our community.

Students should record all cold or flu-related absences, as well as self-isolation absences, through the Absence Declaration tool on ACORN. Find the tool under the Acorn Profile and Settings menu.

Faculty & Staff:
All faculty, staff and librarians who are absent due to flu-like symptoms or are self-isolating are asked to complete the Employee Absence Self-Declaration form, linked below. At this time a doctor’s not is not required. More information for faculty and staff is available on the Human Resources & Equity website.
