With SafeArrival, you are asked to report your child's absence in advance using any of these 3 convenient methods:
- Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger appfrom the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (or from the links at go.schoolmessenger.com). The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.
- Use the SafeArrival website, go.schoolmessenger.com. The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.
- Call the toll-free number 1-844-282-8298 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. The 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. If you report your child's absence in advance using the SafeArrival, you will NOT receive these notifications.
Starting February 1, 2018, please report absences in advance using SafeArrival instead of sending notes or calling/emailing the school. We will be piloting this system in Roosevelt Elementary School and East Middle School. If you have children attending other schools, please continue to report absences using the existing procedures for those schools.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we implement this new system. For more information about this system visit the SafeArrival webpage on your school's website.
