Safe Arrival- new system- starts June 11

Anglophone East is happy to inform you that we have made changes to our absence reporting system.  SafeArrival is an absence management system that improves student safety and makes it easy for you to let the school know about your child’s absence. SafeArrival will be active on June 11 at Queen Elizabeth School.

This system will contact you each time your child is NOT in school at the beginning of the day AND we have not had an ABSENCE REPORTED BY 8:45 A.M. using the methods below. We ask that all parents use this system to report your child’s absence for the month of June as this will be the district system moving forward in September.

Report an absence using one of these convenient methods:

  1. SchoolMessenger app (free)

  1. Provide your email address to the school.

  2. Get the app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (or from the links at https://go.schoolmessenger.ca).

  3. Tap Sign Up to create your account. (Ensure your account is showing in Canada)

  4. Select Attendance from the menu, and then select Report an Absence.

2. Web and Mobile Web: go.schoolmessenger.ca

1.    Provide your email address to the school.

2.    Go to the website.

3.    Click Sign Up to create your account.

4.    Select Attendance from the menu, then select Report an Absence

3. Interactive Toll-free Phone

1.    Call the toll-free, interactive telephone system.


2.    Follow the instructions to report an absence.


Absences can be reported in advance:

  • 24 hours/day

  • 7 days a week

  • For any school day in the school year - Up to the 8:45 a.m. on the day of the absence.

Whenever an absence is reported or updated, you will receive a confirmation notice by email and/or text message (it is important that you have provided your contact information to the school).


If you don’t report your child’s absence in advance, the automated notification system will try to contact you (using the communication preferences if you have set them up in the SchoolMessenger app). This may include push notifications to the app, email, SMS text message (in September), and phone calls. You will be asked to provide the reason for your child’s absence immediately. You may do so using the phone line, website or mobile app.

This system will contact you each time your child is not in class at the beginning of the day and we do not have an absence reported through the parent system. Schools will not accept absences reported to the school or left on voicemail – all parents are required to use this system to report an absence.

If you do receive notifications of your child’s absence, be sure to provide the reason as quickly as possible (within 15 minutes), using one of the three methods listed or respond to the notification or phone call itself.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need a SchoolMessenger app account?

A SchoolMessenger app account is not required as you can use the toll-free phone line to report absences. However, we recommend that you provide your email address to the school and set up your SchoolMessenger app account. This allows you to review and update absences, review your contact information and communication preferences and more.

Once you have set up your account, choose ATTENDANCE from the menu.

If you cannot set up your account, you do not see the ATTENDANCE option, or you do not see your child(ren) listed in your account please confirm that you setup your account on the Canadian site and not the American site. You can also contact the school directly to check that your correct email address is associated with your child(ren).

How do I use the toll-free phone line?

When you call the toll-free phone line
1-833-202-4304, follow the instructions for reporting an absence. If the phone number you are calling from matches a phone number on file with the school for your student(s), you will hear your student’(s) name(s). If the system doesn’t recognize your caller ID, you will be asked to enter the student’s home phone number. You will also be asked if calling from a home phone to set up a 4 digit pin. If you have difficulty using the toll-free phone line, please consider using the SchoolMessenger mobile app or website.

My child was only late why did I get called?

If your child is not present at school when attendance is completed in the morning you will need to report that before 8:45 a.m. otherwise you will be called.

Can I still call the school to report an absence?

The system is set up for you to report the absences. Schools will not accept absences reported to the school or left on voicemail – all parents are required to use this system to report an absence.

FLL Challenge

First Lego League is know for robot game and project, FLL teams research real-world problem and to develop a solution. Campers will design, build, program robot using different components and compete on a table-top playing field.


3D Printing

Do you want to draw in the air? When campers finish their model building, they can use 3D Printing Pen to draw their models on surface or, in the air! Work in similar way to 3D printers, 3D Pen allows campers to produce three-dimensional shapes as they build with LEGO pieces!


Drone with Camera

Drones, also called unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), have no human pilot onboard, and instead are either controlled by a person on the ground or autonomously via a computer program. Campers will learn drone related safety regulations and basics of flight. They can control their drones to make their movies when they have race using their models built.  


Stop Motion Animation

Working as a team, campers will use LEGO components to build sets and props, and then shoot their movie using a digital camera. 

Teams will learn movie-making software to add special effects, titles,

credits and more. Your child will be able to impress friends and family with a screening on the last day and of course a digital copy of all the groups movies to take home.
