"Great program that is up-to-date for the changing environment."

Pros: We have been using PikMyKid for many years now and find that it has really helped with our dismissal process. PMK made some very exciting upgrades to help schools during the COVID-19 crisis. We were able to make our own questions that parents needed to answer before they dropped of their child for the day. After using this for a while, we realized our questions were too general for the situation. It was very easy for us to go back in and change those questions, both English and Spanish. Dismissal is a breeze and quiet! We would recommend PMK to any school who has a need for an easy, organized dismissal system.

Cons: It is hard to find a "con" with this program.

"PMK Review"

Comments: Our overall experience has been good with PikMyKid. It took a bit to get into the swing of it, but once we did it has helped a lot. The feature that allows the parents to change their child's mode of transportation has been a favorite for the front office staff. Being able to keep the students in the classroom until it's time for them to be dismissed has been a tremendous help for social distancing. One major improvement that we would like to see would be to easily identify a transportation change in the dismissal progress page. Some suggestions would be to highlight the student's name, or have an icon showing the change (example: car -> walker). Having the transportation changes EASILY identifiable on the dismissal progress page would be the biggest help that PikMyKid could offer.

Pros: We have only used this program for car riders, as the other transportation modes haven't been implemented. We love how fast it makes our car rider dismissal go. PikMyKid has helped a lot with phone management in the front office because the parents can make the transportation changes on their end. This system is also very helpful in social distancing since the teachers hold the students in their classroom until their parents are at the school to pick them up. Once we were able to get past the learning curve the system worked very well. However, the learning curve took a bit longer than expected though.

Cons: We have struggled with EASILY identifying transportation changes on the classroom/teacher side of this program. We eventually were told of a report that could be set up and sent to the teachers so they could see transportation changes. Before we were told about this, the one screen the teachers worked off of was not clear as to who had a transportation change for that particular day. We continue to struggle with getting accurate transportation change updates. The app and/or website doesn't always work during dismissal time.

"Pikmykid"

Pros: Pikmykid app has streamlined our parent pick up system during a pandemic. We needed a safe and reliable way to get students to their parents/guardians quickly because of the large number of students being picked up in the short time. I am thankful we have this program in place.

Cons: The software doesn't constantly link with our opperating system and so we have to manually enter new students. I think it would also be easier for the system to already have the next student number in place so that we don't have keep track of the next students number.

"It's getting us through Covid...!"

Comments: It is challenging to feel the need to "micromanage" everyone to this degree...but that is not PMK's problem... Drop off works, and it helps us know that parents have had to communicate with us about their child's health that day. And Pick up goes smoothly, kids are not wandering the halls because they know that their ride is waiting for the, Admin are looking for them at the front of the campus, and their teacher will not release them until they know that is the case.

Pros: It keeps cars in the parking flowing fairly consistently, we can quickly see who is on campus, and who saw them and marked them Present. Teachers all over the campus can see when to dismiss a specific kid. Parents are notified when their child is released from school.

Cons: There are always a few parents who struggle with technology...and trying to help them...but life is challenging right now and we're trying to make as much of life work as possible... (((sigh))) One of my major dislikes with PMK is the fact that despite the fact that specific students are checked in the Live Dismissal Progress numbers are always inaccurate. Ours always says there are 387 kids needing to be dismissed, but that is the total number of students we have in the PMK system - not the total that we checked into the campus that morning. Is there a setting that we need to change to have that be accurate?! This aspect feels strange to me, because the whole point of the Check In process is to know exactly who is on campus. So, at what point does the system throw all students in as if they are all on campus?

""Makes dismissal a snap!" from Teacher"

Comments: I use this product as a teacher and a parent. Once you learn how to use it, and from a parent's perspective, where you need to be in line to check-in; our school wisely put up a stop sign that says "PIKMYKID check in here," it works wonderfully. It is easy to see in real-time how a car/parent is moving through the lines so we can quickly and safely get students where they need to be. There was a ramp-up time of a few weeks, but now that we've been using it all school year, things are going quite well.

Pros: I can quickly see every student and where they need to be. The real-time aspects of the dismissal and dispatcher view are excellent. I can broadcast it in my classroom and students can see when and where they are in line, allowing for a quick and efficient dismissal process. Parents or school staff can update students pick up in real-time, allowing for last-minute changes for activities,

Cons: It took a while to learn how to correctly use the features, and which dashboard to be on to be able to accurately dismiss students from the classroom. You need to have robust parent training as well to ensure that parents only use the check-in feature when they are in line...or your dismissal will be off.
