    New Safe Arrival Program
    by Lynn Neufeld - Thursday, 24 May 2018, 11:55 AM

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    SD73 is converting to new Safe Arrival program owned by SchoolMessenger.  This software has its own Student Absence Reporting System that we will be transitioning over to officially on Friday, June 1.

    What do parents need to do in this transition?

    • Be sure to download the SchoolMessenger app and create your account.  It should look just like the screenshot below.  This can be done now in anticipation of the June 1 startup.

         _7KzD7TOlQUtKjwyjJUQeUxK2Yac4V8APiJc7XZmi-9maDeSLlP3j8BS2ywhpl4_on1637Sh-NKG0LET7YwKb0Nk1bkbOwn3yLfMtODW-85G_GMyJiXNdmT0lSWJS3ZuCf17aW0T ( Available for both iPhone and Android)

    • Continue to use the current app and then delete your old SafeArrival app after Thursday, May 31  (as we will no longer be using this application to collect student absences)

    • You can also create an account at the following website:

    The absence reporting telephone number will continue to be 1-844-350-2647.

    We look forward to working with all of you as we transition to the new attendance feature in SchoolMessenger Safe Arrival.  

    For questions or further information, please contact the school.
