Changes coming to elementary SafeArrival system on May 14, 2018

Changes coming to elementary SafeArrival system on May 14, 2018

As you know, the Peel District School Board implemented SafeArrival, an automated absence reporting system for all students in its elementary schools in September 2016. Recently, the service provider for our system was sold to a new company and so, beginning May 14, 2018, there will be some slight changes on how you will report your child's absence from school.



All families must set up a new SafeArrival account beginning May 1, 2018.  The new system will be "live" as of Monday, May 14, 2018 so please ensure your new account has been created by then. Please note: the new SafeArrival system CANNOT be used before May 14 to report any school absences.  You must use our current SafeArrival system until Friday, May 11, 2018.  The phone number will remain the same, only the App and website will change.

Use one of the following methods to set-up your new SafeArrival account. Please ensure the number and email address that you are using to report your child's absences are those that we have on file.

SchoolMessenger app (free from Apple or Google Play)

  1. Download the SchoolMessenger app
  2. Tap Sign Up to create your account

Web and Mobile Web:

  1. Go to the above website
  2. Click Sign Up to create your account

Interactive Toll-free Phone

  1. Call the toll-free number: 1-855-209-6155
  2. Listen to and follow the instructions to report an absence

As always, please report your child's absences before the start of the school day. Late arrivals and/or early departures should be reported as soon as possible. If your child's absence is not reported in advance, the automated notification system will contact you to inform you of the  absence and will provide an opportunity to verify the absence. By reporting your child absent in advance on the SafeArrival toll-free number, website or SchoolMessenger mobile app, you will not receive a call.
