Anderson Elementary School


Safe Arrival Needs Volunteers


Time commitment:  8:45 am to 9:45 am*, one day a week.  We currently need help on Thursdays and Fridays!

  • Every school morning, two Safe Arrival parents help to update each classroom’s daily attendance list by checking the voicemail messages left on the student absences phone line (604-668-6358).
  • When a child is absent or late without known cause, Safe Arrival parents contact families by phone to ensure that the child is safe.
  • Helping with this service is very rewarding because you get to help parents like yourselves have peace of mind knowing that their children are safe and accounted for.
  • Training is provided and there are always two people working together.
  • Fluent English is not necessary and fluency in a second language is a great benefit.
  • It is a good way to make friends with other parents and get to know the teachers.

If you can help, please send your contact details to and your email will be forwarded to the Safe Arrival Team.  Thank you!

* The time commitment can vary.  For example in the winter when the children are out sick, it may take up to 1.5 hours.
