Incoming SafeArrival system makes it easier for families to report attendance!

One of our greatest priorities is ensuring that all our students arrive safely at school each and every day. Clearview Public Schools believes that student attendance is a vital factor in the success of students.

To enhance our existing absence-checking procedure, we are introducing a new student absence reporting system called SafeArrival (through SchoolMessenger) at Stettler Elementary School, Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus, Gus Wetter School, and Coronation School. This new system will reduce the time it takes to verify student attendance, make it easy for you to report your child's absence and easy for staff to respond to unexplained student absences.

With SafeArrival, you now able to report your child's absence or late event in advance using any of these 3 convenient 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.com). The first time you use the app, select Sign Up* to create your account. Select Attendance (the three lines at the top, left corner of the app) then Report an Absence.
  • Use the SafeArrival website, https://go.schoolmessenger.com. 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 1-833-219-9066 to report an absence using the automated phone system.

Note your login information is your E-mail provided to the school and you must have provided your cell phone number as a contact number.

These options are available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week. Future absences can be reported at any time.

In addition, we will use the SchoolMessenger Communicate automated notification system to contact parents whose child is absent when the absence was not reported in advance. The automated notification system will first attempt to contact parents using E-mail, text and app notification, and if no response is provided a phone call will be done after 10 minutes. In the case of Stettler Elementary School, if no response is received after 20 minutes staff will attempt to contact the family directly. For other schools, morning attendance for younger students is done directly, and no notification is provided in the morning.

If you report your child's absence in advance using the SafeArrival toll-free number, website or mobile app, you will NOT receive these notifications.

Starting Monday, May 3, 2021, families will be able to report absences in advance using SafeArrival instead of sending notes or calling/emailing the school, or using a phone number previously in use.

If you have children attending other schools, please continue to report absences using the existing procedures for those schools.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we implement this new system.
