Reporting Attendance

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 ​1-866-811-3171 to report an absence using the automated phone system.
