Glenburnie PS Weekly Update
December 2-6, 2019
NEW FOR 2019-2020: All parents/guardians are asked to report their student’s absence regardless of the reason including during bus cancellations. Often, bused students find alternative ways to school and we want to ensure we know the whereabouts of every student to ensure their safety and well-being. Knowing who is supposed to be at school will allow school office staff to best ensure all students are accounted for.
· Bus cancellation as the reason for absence if your student is bused
· Inclement weather as the reason for the absence if your student walks but will not be attending
If your student is marked absent and the absence hasn’t been reported in advance, our SafeArrival system will attempt to reach the student’s priority contact by telephone to confirm the absence.
The Limestone District School Board uses the SafeArrival system for parents/guardians to report student absences. This can be done one of three ways: the SchoolMessenger App on your mobile device; the SchoolMessenger website portal; or the toll-free number automated phone system at 1-855-257-9349.
