Student Absences & Lates

Reporting Student Absences & Lates

Introducing a new and efficient student absence reporting system called SafeArrival.

This new system will reduce the time it takes to verify student attendance, making it easy for you to report your child’s absence and easy for us 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:

SchoolMessenger App

Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.

SafeArrival Website

Using the SafeArrival website, go to: go.schoolmessenger.ca. The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.

Toll-Free Number (not our school number)

Call 1-844-487-3701 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 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 you report your child’s absence in advance using the SafeArrival feature on the SchoolMessenger app, website or toll-free number you will NOT receive these notifications.

Your cooperation in reporting student absences is appreciated.

*Late students should check in at the school office with their parent/guardian to be signed in before going to class
