Safe Arrival

Safe Arrival
Posted on 08/29/2019

At Weatherly Area School District, one of our greatest priorities is ensuring that all our students arrive safely at school each and every day.

As a result, last year WASD rolled out the SchoolMessenger SafeArrival system.  This system reduces the time it takes to verify student attendance, makes it easy for you to report your child’s absence, and easy for staff to respond to unexplained student absences.

With SafeArrival, you are asked to report your child’s absence in advance using any of these 3 convenient methods:

  1. Call the toll-free number 1-844-578-4868 to report an absence using the automated phone system.
  2.  Use the SafeArrival website, go.schoolmessenger.com. The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.
  3. Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.

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

In addition, we also use the SchoolMessenger automated notification system to contact parents whose child is absent when the absence was not reported in advance. The automated notification system will attempt to contact parents at multiple contact points until a reason is submitted for the absence. If our system is unable to reach the designated contacts, office staff will follow up.

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.
