Absence Reporting using SafeArrival (Pilot Program)
Ensuring students arrive safely at school each day is one of our top priorities.
Starting Monday, April 19, 2021, Seymour Heights Elementary is one of six elementary schools at the North Vancouver School District piloting SafeArrival, a student absence reporting system.
SafeArrival, which is part of the School Messenger platform, is designed to enhance our existing absence-checking procedures by making it easier for you to report your child’s absence (e.g. illness, vacation, appointment, etc), reducing the time it takes school staff to verify student attendance, and making it more efficient for staff to respond to unreported student absences.
