Saint Francis Catholic Secondary School

Safe Arrival Program – Parent Portal

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The Niagara Catholic District School Board and Saint Francis Catholic Secondary School has introduced a new, more efficient student absence reporting system. This new system reduces the time it takes to verify student attendance making it easier for you to report your child’s absence and easier for staff to respond to unaccounted student absences.

  1. Parents can call into an automated interactive telephone system via a toll free number (1-844-287-6287) through which absences can be reported.
  2. Parents can log into a website, to access a Parent Portal where an account can be set up to report absences via web or smart phone.
  3. Parents can use a Free Smartphone App called SafeArrival, available through the Apple App Store or Google Play.


All systems will be available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week. Future absences can be reported at any time. Please note that in order to use the system, you will need to register in the system by creating an account on the website. This will allow you to then report absences via the telephone number above, the website (, or via the free iOS or Android App for your smart phone (cell phone).
