To enhance our existing
absence-checking procedure, we are introducing a new, more efficient student
absence reporting system called SafeArrival.
This new system will reduce the time it takes to verify student attendance,
make it easy for you to report your child’s absence and easy for staff to
respond to unexplained student absences. With SafeArrival, you are asked to
report your child’s absence in advance using any of these 3 convenient methods:
1. Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger
app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (or from the links at
https://go.schoolmessenger.com). The first time you use the app, select Sign Up
to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.
2. Use the SafeArrival website, https://go.schoolmessenger.com.
The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account.
Select Attendance then Report an Absence.
3. Call the toll-free number (1-833-294-4838) to report an
absence using the automated phone system.
These options are available
24 hours/day, 7 days a week. Future
absences can be reported at any time. In addition, we will use the
SchoolMessenger Communicate automated notification system to contact parents
whose child is absent when the absence was not reported in advance. The
automated notification system will attempt to contact parents at multiple
contact points until a reason is submitted for the absence. If our system is
unable to reach the designated contacts, office staff will follow up.
