2018 Safe Arrival Letter to Parents

SafeArrival Letter to Parents

May 28, 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians,

At Wild Rose School Division​, 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 introducing a​ new, more efficient
student absence reporting system called SafeArrival​. This new system will reduce the time it takes 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:

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 The first
time you use the app, select Sign Up​ to create your account. Select Attendance ​then Report an

2. Use the SafeArrival website, 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 1-855-756-2797​ to report an absence using the automated phone

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.

Starting ​Monday, June 4, 2018​, please report absences in advance using SafeArrival ​instead of sending notes or calling/emailing the school.

Starting ​Monday, June 4, 2018​, 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.
