School Messenger

At the Lambton Kent District School Board, one of our greatest priorities is ensuring students have arrived safely at school and are participating in classes every day. You may have received notification about your child’s absence from our SchoolMessenger automated attendance messaging system.

We kindly ask you to now use SchoolMessenger as the main way to report your child’s absence to the school.  

Please sign up now using your e-mail or your phone number that matches the school’s records and use SchoolMessenger in one of the following three ways to report your child’s absence:

Option 1
Set up an online SchoolMessenger account and login to schedule and report absences or late arrival. To create your account or login in click here.

Option 2:
Download the free SchoolMessenger app (blue) to your smart phone or tablet to schedule and report absences or late arrival.
Option 3:
​Call the LKDSB toll-free Attendance Reporting number ​​​​​​​​​​​1 (844) 487-3695​ and follow the prompts to report your child’s absence. For your security it is recommended that you set a PIN. 

When you create a School Messenger account, you will be able to see General and Emergency Broadcasts that have been shared with you by your school or the LKDSB. Attendance is a menu feature that gives you access to enter, edit or delete a SchoolMessenger absence notification for your child(ren).

​Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we implement this new system.​
