At Lethbridge Christian School, one of our greatest priorities is ensuring that all our students arrive safely to school each and every day. In 2016, the Lethbridge School Division implemented a new system with our parent community called SafeArrival. It allows parents to report their child’s absence quickly and conveniently.
SafeArrival has been well received by our families and Lethbridge Christian School has been chosen to implement SafeArrival to report student absences.
In preparation for the move to this new release, we are asking our parents to do the following:
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 866-879-1041 to report an absence using the automated phone system.
SafeArrival is available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week. Future absences can be reported at any time.
We will continue to use our automated notification system to contact parents at multiple contact numbers until one of the designated contacts is reached. If our system is unable to reach a designated contact after 20 minutes, office staff will continue to follow up. By reporting your child absent in advance using the Safe Arrival toll free number or SafeArrival Portal website/app, you will NOT receive a call.
We need your support in order to make this successful.
We will start using our new absence reporting system on September 6, 2022. As of September 6, 2022, all absence reporting should go through the mobile app, Parent Portal website or the Toll-Free number. Please do not report absences to the school by calling or emailing the school directly.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this transition period to better ensure the safety of all our children.
