School Messenger – Safe Arrival  
 
To enhance our existing absence Safe Arrival procedure,  the SafeArrival SchoolMessenger platform has been implmented to report student absence in a more efficient and timely manner.  The Toronto Catholic District School Board implemented this new system starting on January 14, 2019. SafeArrival feature is within the SchoolMessenger App. This new system will reduce the time it takes to verify student attendance, making it easy for you to report your child’s absence and easy for staff to respond to unreported student absences.
 
With SafeArrival, you are asked to report your child’s absence in advance using any of these three convenient methods:
 
        1.  Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (or from the links at https://go.schoolmessenger.com). The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.
 
        2. Use the SafeArrival website, https://go.schoolmessenger.com. The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.
 
         3. Call the toll-free number 1 (833) 251-3286 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 up to a maximum of 10 consecutive days. It is important to note that when setting up your account, you must register using the email address and phone number associated with your child’s student record.​
