Important Update re: Reporting Student Absences

February 08, 2021

​At the Lambton Kent District School Board, one of our greatest priorities is ensuring students have arrived safely at school every day. You may have received notification about your child's absence from our SchoolMessenger automated attendance messaging system. We will soon be adding a SchoolMessenger Parent/Guardian Reporting Tool for you to notify the school about your child's absence.

Soon, parents/guardians will be required to use SchoolMessenger in one of the following three ways to report your child's absence:

  • Option 1: Call a toll-free number and follow the prompts.
  • Option 2: Set up a secure online SchoolMessenger account and login to a website.
  • Option 3: Download and set up the SchoolMessenger app (Apple or Android) to a smart phone or tablet.

More information and step-by-step instructions to set up this enhanced SchoolMessenger SafeArrival feature will be provided from your child's school as they activate the new system.

Should you have any specific questions about your child, please contact your school directly.
