SafeArrival Student Absence Reporting is Coming to Our School!

As a follow up to the email you received from the Halton Catholic District School Board on October 17th, we are writing to remind you that beginning Monday, November 5, 2018, our school will be moving to a new automated student attendance management system called SafeArrival.

Starting next week, parents will need to report absences in advance using SafeArrival instead of calling or emailing our school office.
Our current email address (ourladyoffatima.attendance@hcdsb.org) WILL BE DEACTIVATED and you can no longer leave messages by calling 905-864-0720 and pressing 1 for attendance.

The new student attendance management system is available 24/7 and will allow you to report your child’s absence in one of three ways:

  1. using the SchoolMessenger® mobile app
  2. by logging into the SchoolMessenger®  web site
  3. by calling into an interactive toll-free phone line

For more information about the SafeArrival student attendance management system, click here: bit.ly/HCDSB-SafeArrival.

The safety of our students is our highest priority, and we look forward to enhancing our existing student attendance process by making it easier for parents to report a child’s absence, and more efficient for our school office staff to follow up sooner on unexplained absences.
