Attendance - Safe ArrivalOctober 18, 2023
School Messenger allows parents/guardians to report student absences, late arrivals, early departures and vacations by phone, web or smartphone app. Parents/ guardians will report all absences through School Messenger before 9:00 AM and will not receive a phone call from the school.
For safety reasons, in the event of an unexplained student absence, the system will communicate with parents in a timely manner.
There are three ways to report an absence:
Phone: Parents/guardians can call the toll free number 1-855-278-4513; listen carefully to all the options, choose the appropriate absence and reason; wait for confirmation number.
Internet: Parents/guardians can log into the website: https://go.schoolmessenger.ca and sign up using the email address on file at Rockwood School and a password of your choosing. Absences, late arrivals, early departures and vacations can be reported.
iPhone or Android device: If you would like to use an app on your smart phone: Download the free app through the App Store or Google Play; search School Messenger; install the blue app and sign up using the email address on file at Rockwood School and a password of your choosing. Absences, late arrivals, early departures and vacations can be reported.
Absences must be reported to School Messenger no later than 9:00 am on the day of the absence.
