Please call Safe Arrival:

  • If your student is going to absent from school
    for part of the day, for the full day, or for more than one day)

  • If your student will be arriving late

Please speak slowly and clearly.  We require:

  • Student's Name

  • Student's Class

  • Date(s) and time(s) of the absence


Please call the Safe Arrival line (Ext 1) rather than the school office to leave absentee information.

If you send a note or an email to your child's teacher, please also call and leave a voicemail on the Safe Arrival line.


This program is operated by the school for the safety of our students. If your child is absent and we receive a message from you informing us of the absence, we know your child is safe and accounted for.  If a message is NOT left, Ms. Ashton or Ms. Moore will be calling you to confirm where your child is.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter!
