Dear Wildcat Parents and Guardians,
We are excited to share that our new, more efficient student absence reporting system called SafeArrival is now available for use. This new system will reduce the time to verify student attendance, make it easy for you to report your child’s absence and easy for staff 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:
***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 Communicate 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 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 toll-free number, website or mobile app, you will NOT receive these notifications.
Parents will be able to begin using these 3 options, beginning Friday, May 13th after 2pm to REPORT AN ABSENCE starting Monday, May 16th and beyond. Please report absences in advance using SafeArrival instead of sending notes or calling/emailing the school. Staff will being using the SafeArrival notifications to let you know if your student is absent (when you haven’t reported the absence in advance).
Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we implement this new system. We hope it makes your life easier and improves our work in ensuring every child is safe and accounted for.
