For Parents-Safe Arrival

 

At St. Robert Catholic School, one of our greatest priorities is ensuring that all our students arrive safely at school each and every day.
 
To enhance our existing absence-checking procedure, we are in the process of introducing a new, more efficient student absence reporting system called SafeArrival. Your child’s school is one of the first schools in the Toronto Catholic District School Board selected to implement this new system starting on May 7, 2018. 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 3 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 Trillium account.
 
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.
Starting May 7, 2018, please report absences in advance using SafeArrival instead of sending notes or calling/emailing the school.
