Absence Reporting

SafeArrival Student Absence Reporting

The SafeArrival student absence reporting system reduces 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 unexplained student absences. 

With SafeArrival, you are asked to report your child’s absence in advance using any of these three convenient methods. To create your account, please use the same email address/phone number that you use for PowerSchool. If you do not have your PowerSchool login information, please contact your child’s school for assistance.

  1. Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store, or via the links on the SchoolMessenger website.
    • The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. 
    • To report an absence, Select Attendance.  
  2. Use the SafeArrival website
    • The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account.
