Reporting a Child's Absence for ÉWSSJune 13, 2023
Safe Arrival Absence Reporting System
At Winnipeg School Division, one of our greatest priorities is ensuring all students arrive safely at school each and every day.
To enhance our existing absence-checking procedure, we are in the process of introducing to all of our schools a new, more efficient student absence reporting system called SafeArrival. This new system reduces the time it takes to verify student attendance, makes it easy for you to report your child’s absence and easy for staff to respond to unexplained student absences.
Please note, if you as a parent or guardian have questions about Safe Arrival or School Messenger, please contact the school office directly.
With SafeArrival, you are asked to report your child’s absence in advance using any of these three methods:
- 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.ca). The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance, then Report an Absence.
- Use the SafeArrival website, https://go.schoolmessenger.ca. The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance, then Report an Absence.
- Call the toll-free number 1-855-278-4513 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.
