Ensuring students arrive safely at school each day is one of our top priorities.
All elementary schools in the North Vancouver School District use SafeArrival, a student absence reporting system, to enhance our existing absence-checking procedures. SafeArrival, which is part of the SchoolMessenger platform, makes it easier for you to report your child's absence (e.g. illness, vacation, appointment), reduces the time it takes school staff to verify student attendance, and makes it more efficient for staff to respond to unreported student absences.
If your child will be absent due to illness, appointment or vacation, please report your child's absence in advance using any of the three options, which are available to you 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Please see below for more information:
