Safe Arrival: 3 Ways to Report a Student Absence

Posted on 01/10/2019
Safe Arrival

One of our greatest priorities is ensuring that all our students arrive safely to school.  To enhance our existing absence process, we are introducing a new, more efficient absence-reporting system called Safe Arrival.

This new system will make it easier for you to report your student’s absence, reduce the time it takes for our school staff to verify student attendance, and respond to unexpected or unplanned student absences. This time-savings makes it faster and more efficient to account for all students and their safety.

There are three ways you can report your student’s absence using Safe Arrival:

1.  Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger blue app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store or you can select it from within the LDSB mobile app. The first time you use the app, you must select Sign Up to create your account. Please ensure you use the same email address your student’s school has on file. If you do not use that same email address, you will not be able to create an account. You may have already created an account when we introduced the Communicate broadcast system. Select Attendance, then Report an Absence.

2.  Use the School Messenger website. The first time you use the app, you must select Sign Up to create your account. Please ensure you use the same email address your student’s school has on file. If you do not use that same email address, you will not be able to create an account.  You may have already created an account when we introduced the Communicate broadcast system. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.

3.  Call 1-855-257-9349 toll-free to report an absence using the automated phone system.
