Our District has upgraded the Safe Arrival absence reporting process to support families in having their children arrive safely to school. This 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:
- On a mobile device, install the District App (search “Greater St. Albert Schools” in the Apple App or Google Play stores). Select SafeArrival - Attendance - Report an Absence. (Please note, to sign up for the new School Messenger SafeArrival it is best to use a computer)
- On the SAA website select REPORT ABSENCES or SafeArrival website, go.schoolmessenger.ca. Sign Up to create your account, then select Attendance followed by Report an Absence.
- Call the toll-free number 1-844-502-5100 to report an absence using the toll-free system.
What happens if I do not report my child(s) absence?
If your student is marked absent and it is not explained in advance, the SafeArrival system will send notifications by automated phone call, text message, email, or mobile app push notification to get a reason for the absence. If our system is unable to reach the designated contacts, office staff will follow up. Calls and contacts will continue until you choose an option to explain the absence.
