Safe Arrival by School Messenger

A New Way for Families to Report Student Absences

One of our greatest priorities is ensuring all students arrive at school safely each day.

Parents/guardians of students who attend our school now have the option to report their child’s absence in advance using a toll-free number, the PowerSchool Parent Portal or an app! School Messenger Safe Arrival – an absence management system that improves student safety and makes it easy for families to inform their child’s school if they will be away – powers all three of these options.

If your child will be absent, please let us know by using one of the following methods:

1. Toll-Free Number - Call 1-833-582-6940 to report an absence using an automated system. 

2. PowerSchool Parent Portal - Log into and access the SchoolMessenger website to report an absence.  

3. SchoolMessenger App - Download the SchoolMessenger app for Android and iOS devices and sign up using your PowerSchool username (full email address).
