Spencer-Van Etten Central School District uses an efficient student absence reporting system called SafeArrival. This system makes it easy for you to report your child's absence, reduces the time it takes to verify student attendance and allows staff to respond to unexplained student absences more efficiently.
SafeArrival allows you to report your child's absence quickly and conveniently in one of three ways:
|1||Website||sve.schoolconnects.com||Log in to this website address to access the Safe Arrival Parent Portal where an account can be set up to report absences.|
|2||Mobile App||SafeArrival app by Synrevoice Technologies||Download the Apple, Android or Blackberry app to report absences.|
|3||Toll-free Phone Line||1-844-553-3311||Call the automated interactive telephone system, using this toll free number, to report absences.|
All methods are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Therefore, absences may be reported ahead of time, e.g. Doctor or dentist appointment etc.
In addition, we are using the SchoolConnects automated notification system already used by our schools, to contact parents whose child is absent and the absence was not reported in advance. SchoolConnects contacts parents at multiple contact numbers until one of the designated contacts is reached. If the system is unable to reach a designated contact within 30 minutes, office staff will follow up. If you report your child absent in advance using the SafeArrival website, app or toll-free number, you will not receive these calls.
