École St. Catherine's Elementary School

New Safe Arrive Tool

One of our greatest priorities is ensuring that all our students arrive safely to school each and every day.  Our school will be implementing a new way to report absences through SchoolMessenger.  Starting on Saturday, April 23, parents will be able to report future absences using a toll-free number, the PowerSchool Parent Portal or an app.

Starting on Monday, April 25, if a student is absent and the absence has not been reported in advance, parents will receive a notification via email, text, and phone from SchoolMessenger.

All three methods are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Up to five consecutive absences can be recorded at once.

SchoolMessenger SafeArrival will upload attendance data from PowerSchool 30 minutes from the start time of the school. It is important that accurate attendance is taken and submitted before that time.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we implement this new tool.
