There may some mistakes as we get started - please be patient with us..

Aberdeen Elementary is joining the School District’s new Safe Arrival System starting, Monday, November 7th. Parents will no longer be leaving a message on our school answering machine/Safe Arrival line. The new system will handle the majority of parent contact (including phone calls) when a student absence is unexpected. The new system also allows parents to interact directly with the system in the following ways:

o by phone when the system calls you, or when you want to initiate a call to notify that your child
o will be absent
o by internet through a login controlled web page interface
o by a Smartphone app (iOS and Android version; both available for free).

Starting Monday, all parents are asked to please report student absences before 8:30 am on the day of the absence (you can also report absences in advance, if they are known). To report an absence you may choose to:

o call the toll-free # 1-844-350-2647 or
o access the following website: http://ktsd.schoolconnects.com/ or
o download the Synervoice Technologies Inc app by searching for Safe Arrival School Connects.

Please choose the reason for your child’s absence from school: sick, appointment, family vacation, etc. Don’t forget to wait for confirmation # to ensure your child’s absence has been recorded. A registration email will be sent to parents in advance. These emails are not spam and will contain specific parent login information for the system, as well as, instructions on how to log in as a parent to report your child’s absences.

If you do not connect with the system by 8:30 on the day of your child’s absence from school, and when the teacher has completed attendance for his/her class, then a report will be dispatched for all students absent without a reason. The system will then proceed to call home and cell phone numbers until you are reached. Each number will be called up to 5 times. It is important that your home and cell phone numbers, along with email addresses are kept current.

Yours truly,


Mrs. S. Zryd,
Principal
