Report Absences at GBMS & GBHS using SchoolMessenger - SafeArrival

To enhance our existing attendance and absence-checking procedure, we are testing a new, more efficient student absence reporting system called SafeArrival for the remainder of the school year.  This new system will reduce the time it takes to verify student attendance and make it easy for guardians to report a student's absence or respond to an unexplained student absence. 

Guardians at GBMS & GBHS are now asked to report your child’s absence in advance using any of these 3 convenient methods:

These options are available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week.  Future absences can be reported at any time. 

Text Notification Service

Our school utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages, straight to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts and more.*

You can participate in this free service* just by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 67587.

You can also opt-out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy PledgeTM, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.

Information on SMS text messaging and Short Codes: SMS stands for Short Message Service and is commonly referred to as a "text message". Most cell phones support this type of text messaging. Our notification provider, SchoolMessenger, uses a true SMS protocol developed by the telecommunications industry specifically for mass text messaging, referred to as “short code” texting. This method is fast, secure and highly reliable because it is strictly regulated by the wireless carriers and only allows access to approved providers. If you’ve ever sent a text vote for a TV show to a number like 46999, you have used short code texting.
*Terms and Conditions – Message frequency varies. Standard message and data rates may apply. Reply HELP for help. Text STOP to cancel. Mobile carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. See for more info.
