Attendance Reporting

Valleyview Secondary School uses a Safe Arrival program owned by SchoolMessenger.  This software has its own Student Absence Reporting System.  

Options for Reporting Absences:
  1. Download the SchoolMessenger app (blue icon) and create an account. (iPhone and Android)
    You may also create an account on the School Messenger website.
    NOTE - You must use the same email address that the school has on record.  If you wish to use a different one or if your email address has changed, please contact the school to update your email address.
  2. If you prefer to call to report and absence call 1-844-350-2647.


**NEW FEATURES 2022*** SafeArrivals/Absence Communication

Safe Arrival: Starting on Monday, January 17, there will be a safe arrival phone call home to parents of any students who are absent from class and unexcused by 9:30 am. You will still be able to use the School Messenger app or absence line to let us know when your student will be away, however, there will be a cut off time for you to do that. After 8:30 am, you will not be able to enter any absences through the app or toll free line. Instead, you will have to call the school directly.

Text Message (SMS) Option: Please review this document and text the letter "y" to the number listed in the flyer to use this new service. The mobile number you have already provided to our office will then be able to receive text messages from us. For more information, please go to the School District website under the heading of Attendance/Safe Arrival.
