EVERY parent/guardian with a student returning Face to Face must have the PikMyKid app! If you have not filled out the MES Transportation Form (how students get uploaded into the platform), please click HERE. Please be patient...once you fill out the form, your student will not automatically appear. MES has to upload into the platform itself. Thank you.
** You do not have to enter a student ID when registering the app...if it asks you for one, don’t worry...you don’t need it. All that means is that we have not uploaded your data from the form yet. Data is being uploaded in groups. Please be patient...your child will appear in the app after the data is uploaded on our end, we promise!
** Enable notifications AND location services for the PikMyKid Parent app on your phone!
How do I use the app and what do I do?
Dismissal Changes - The PikMyKid app is used to make all dismissal changes. Dismissal changes or pickup delegations must be made by 2pm daily.
Carpool - your app should be open before you arrive to school. When the "ANNOUNCE" button turns green please click it! There is a sign for the PikMyKid Zone at the entrance to the carpool lot to remind you. Teachers will be notified that you are in the car line queue and will send your student fromthe classroom outside.
Walker - when you get to the walker pad to (at the flagpole) to meet your student, the ANNOUNCE button on the app will turn green. You have to click the button! (No sign at Walker Pad). Teachers will be notified that you are waiting at the Walker Pad and will send your student from the classroom outside.
Bus - we will use the app to notify you if buses depart late or have delays. No action necessary if your student is riding the bus.
What if someone else picks up my child? (A nanny, a grandparent, etc)
You will need to make this person a DELEGATE within the app. Click HERE for instructions on how to do that.
What if I need to change pickup mode?
Dismissal changes must be made within the app. Emails and phone calls will not be accepted.
Click HERE to learn how to change pickup mode in the app.
We will be utilizing a new app called PikMyKid for three processes:
- All dismissal changes will now go through this app. Emails to teachers and phone calls to main office will no longer be used to change mode of dismissal for students.
- Automate carpool line notification to teacher’s classrooms to keep a steady flow of car pool dismissal as well as bus notifications for late buses.
App is available for download from your phone's app store. Information below.
