Safe Arrivals Program

​​Report your Child's Absence

The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board is excited to launch the Safe Arrivals Program on February 1, 2020, which will allow parents/guardians to report their child's absence in a new, more convenient way.

This project will be piloted at St. Michael Catholic School in Belleville and St. Paul Catholic Secondary School in Trenton.

Using the Safe Arrivals Program, parents/guardians will be able to report daily absences (such as an illness, medical appointment, etc.) and even schedule absences in one of three ways:

  • SchoolMessenger mobile app

  • SchoolMessenger website

  • Calling toll-free 1-844-445-4383

Once parents/guardians have reported an absence, they will receive a message confirming the details by email or the app, if set up.

As student safety is ALCDSB's number one priority, this program allows school secretaries to know where students are faster and track their absences in a more effective way.

Before you begin, you must have an email address and/or phone number associated with your child's school to sign up.
