At Perrysburg Schools, one of our greatest priorities is ensuring that all our students arrive safely at school each and every day. To enhance our absence-checking procedure, we utilize a student absence reporting system called SafeArrival for all grades, preschool through 12. This system is designed to reduce the time it takes to verify student attendance, provide more options for you to report your child’s absence and make it possible for staff to respond as fast as possible to any unexplained student absence.
Please enter 844-393-6016 into your phone address book as Perrysburg Schools Attendance Line right away, so if you receive a call it will not be seen as a potential spam call.
With SafeArrival, you are asked to report your child’s absence in advance using any of these three 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 go.schoolmessenger.com
). The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Please set a PIN right away to ensure your account is secure and use the email address that the school uses for regular communications so you are linked with your child(ren). Select Attendance, then Report an Absence.
- Use the SafeArrival website, go.schoolmessenger.com
. The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Please set a PIN right away to ensure your account is secure and use the email address that the school uses for regular communications. Select Attendance, then Report an Absence.
- Call the toll-free number 844-393-6016 to report an absence using the automated phone system. (No login or account required.)
These options are available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week. Future absences may be reported at any time. Please note that for Preschool families, your students will be listed under their future elementary school, not Perrysburg Preschool.
In addition, we will use the SchoolMessenger Communicate automated notification system to contact parents/guardians whose child is absent when the absence was not reported in advance. The automated notification system will attempt to contact parents/guardians at multiple contact points until a reason is submitted for the absence. If our system is unable to reach the designated contacts, office staff members will follow up.
If you report your child’s absence in advance using the SafeArrival toll-free number, website or mobile app, you will NOT receive these notifications. Notifications are only sent to you if your child is not in school and you have not already provided notice.
Please note: Personal Convenience/Pre-Planned Absences are still handled through your school office and cannot be entered by parents/guardians in SafeArrival. Please start by using this form.
