All WCSD families report student absences through a secure system called SafeArrival. In addition to reducing the time it takes to verify student attendance, this system gives families more options to report a child’s absence and allows our staff to immediately investigate discrepancies. This is especially important when a child is reported absent during attendance and the office has not notified that the student would be missing school that day.
Families are able to report and/or schedule absences through any of the following options:
- An app on their mobile device, (SafeArrival has a blue icon and the words SchoolMessenger)
- A secure website, or
- A toll-free telephone number (1-844-431-0874)
The SafeArrival app is convenient, the toll-free number is districtwide, and the dedicated website also provides access to an archive of messages sent to families through the district’s notification system.
