How To Use The SafeArrival Absence Reporting System

Posted: October 7, 2022

Good afternoon, ASD-N Families.

We are reaching out to remind you about SafeArrival absence reporting system that Anglophone North School District has adopted​ with School Messenger. All school districts in New Brunswick currently use this same system.

Ensuring that all of our students arrive safely at school each and every day is a priority for the District. But we need your help to ensure that our system works as effectively as it can.

The SafeArrival system is now active in all of our schools, and this is the only way any student absences should now be reported.  If you contact your school or teacher directly to report an absence, you will be referred back to the SafeArrival system.

It is your responsibility to report your child’s absence, and the SafeArrival system offers three convenient ways to do that in advance. Please choose the method that works best for you:


1.       Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (or from the links at The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account (use the email address you have on file with the school). Select Attendance then Report an Absence.

2.       Use the SafeArrival website, The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.

3.       Call the toll-free number 1-833-294-4832 to report an absence using the automated phone system.


All options are available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week for your convenience. Future absences can be reported any time.

In addition, we will use the SchoolMessenger Communicate 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.

Thank you for your cooperation, and for helping ASD-N keep our students safe.
