New Student Absence Reporting System - SafeArrival

Morinville Community High School has been lucky enough to have been chosen to pilot a new student absence reporting system called Safe Arrival.  To enhance our existing absence check procedure, we are introducing a new, more efficient student absence reporting system called SchoolConnects SafeArrival.  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. 

WE WILL BE STARTING THE SAFE ARRIVAL SYSTEM ON OCT. 3RD

Click HERE for more information regarding Safe Arrival.

SafeArrival is an absence reporting system that:

  • makes it easy for you to report your child’s absence
  • increases student safety by allowing staff to respond to unexplained absences more efficiently.

You are asked to report your child’s absence using one of the following convenient methods:

Phone

1-844-818-9908

Call the toll-free, interactive telephone system.

Website

gsac.schoolconnects.com

Set up your Parent Portal account then log in.

Mobile App

SafeArrival app

Set up your Parent Portal account, download the Apple or Android app, then log in.

 

All methods are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Absences may be reported ahead of time or on the day of the absence before the morning bell.

We will be using the SchoolConnects automated notification system to contact parents/guardians if a child is absent and the absence was not reported in advance. SchoolConnects attempts to contact parents/guardians at multiple contact numbers until the designated contact(s) is/are reached. If the system is unable to reach a designated contact within 20 minutes, office staff will follow up. If you report your child absent using the toll-free number, Parent Portal website or SafeArrival app, you will not receive these calls.
