Attendance and Safe Entry 427
Attendance and Safe Entry
School begins at 8:55 am.

Regular, punctual attendance is required. Any student who arrives late in the morning or afternoon must report directly to the office.  All late arrivals are recorded and repeated absence or late arrival may result in contact with parents/guardian and the School Board’s attendance counselor.
Student Safe Arrival Program
To enhance our existing absence check procedure, Boxwood has introduced a new absence reporting system to our parent community, called Safe Arrival. It will allow parents to report their child’s absence quickly and conveniently in one of three ways:
  1. Parents can call into an automated intera​ctive telephone system via a toll free number (1-855-203-2994) through which absences can be reported.                                                                                         
  2. Parents can log into a website, to authenticate their Portal account to report absences and update contact information.                                                                                   
  3. Parents who have authenticated their accounts and have either an iOS or Android device can download an app that can be used to report absences. ​ 

The system will be available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week.  Future absences can be reported at any time. 

In addition, there is an automated notification system to contact parents who have not reported their child absent. The automated notification system will contact parents at multiple contact numbers until one of the designated contacts is reached. If our system is unable to reach a designated contact after 20 minutes, office staff will follow up. 

By reporting your child absent in advance using the Safe Arrival toll free number, you will NOT receive a call.​
