Safe Arrival (School Messenger) – Student Absence Reporting and SMS Text Messaging

We have upgraded the Safe Arrival absence reporting process to support families in having their children arrive safely to school. For the coming year, we are using a new system that will make it easier for you to report, and respond to, school absences for your child. The new system also integrates with our notification system, School Messenger.

The new student absence reporting system will allow the school to verify student attendance, and quickly notify parents and guardians of absences that were unexpected or unplanned..

Report your child’s absence in advance with 3 convenient methods:

  1. On a mobile device, install the District App (search “Greater St. Albert Schools” in the  Apple App or Google Play stores).
  • Select SafeArrival à Attendance à Report an Absence. (Please note, to sign up for the new School Messenger SafeArrivalit is best to use a computer)
  1. On the SafeArrival websitego.schoolmessenger.ca.
  • Sign Up to create your account, then select Attendance followed by Report an Absence.
  1. Call the toll-free number 1-844-818-9908 to report an absence using the automated phone system.

Report future absences using one of these three options 24 hours/day, 7 days a week.
