Safe Arrival

Dear Parents/Guardians

This is a reminder that Our School will begin its implementation of SchoolMessenger Safe Arrival, Monday, April 25.

SchoolMessenger Safe Arrival is now available to parents/guardians for reporting student absences using one of the three methods below.

For all methods, parents will have two choices.

·         Full Day absence with a reason of Absent with Notification.

·         Multiple Day absence with a reason of Absent with Notification.  Up to five consecutive absences can be entered at a time.

If your student will be arriving late or if your student will only be absent for part of the day, please report a Full Day Absence, and when the student arrives the absence will be adjusted by the school.

If your student is absent and the absence has not been reported in advance, you will receive notifications via email, text, and phone calls from SchoolMessenger.  If SchoolMessenger cannot reach you, office staff will follow up.

To report your student absent, you can use any of the following methods:

PowerSchool Parent/Student Portal

Parents/guardians can log in to to access the SchoolMessenger website to report future absences. 

SchoolMessenger App

Parents/guardians can download the SchoolMessenger app for Android and iOS devices and use their username and password for the PowerSchool Portal.

Toll-Free Number

Parents/guardians can call 1-833-582-6940 to report future absences using an automated system.

All three methods are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Absences can be reported at any time before the start of school on the day the student will be absent.  Up to five consecutive absences can be recorded at once.

If you have students attending other schools, please continue to report absences using the existing procedures for those schools.
