Reporting Student Absence

Parents must call 1-866-606-5567 to report a student absence. Please do not call or email the school office or teachers. There is also a School Messenger app that you can download that allows you to record student absences. 

Attendance Procedures - School Messenger/Safe Arrival

To re-establish a connection for the new school year, parents must logout of the School Messenger app, and log back in. This will ensure the app works correctly with our new office software. After logging back in, if your email does not match what is in our data, you will be prompted to contact the school to verify your email address.

Carleton School is now using the SafeArrival program for attendance. With SafeArrival, you are asked to report your child’s absence in advance using any of these 3 convenient methods:

  • 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 https://go.schoolmessenger.ca). The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence
  • Use the SafeArrival website, at https://go.schoolmessenger.ca. The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence
  • Call the toll-free number 1-866-606-5567 to report an absence using the automated phone system.

These options are available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week.  Future absences can be reported at any time.

Student Prevalent Medical Condition

If your child has a Prevalent Medical Condition (Asthma, Anaphylaxis, Diabetes, Epilepsy, or other) for which the school will need to have a Plan of Care, please complete the applicable form at the link below and return it to the school with your child as soon as possible. Remember, these must be completed at the start of each school year. There is also a form for students that require school staff to provide oral or topical medication.
