Winter can be one of the best times of the year. Students love to play in the snow. Who doesn’t like to make snow angels or throw snowballs at each other!? However, as winter quickly approaches, the cold wintry months can cause students to get sick, traffic delays and school closures.
The PikMyKid system was designed with winter in mind. Our safety platform has some nifty tools that help make the winter dismissals a breeze. Being on a PikMyKid’s safety platform during these chilly months is riddled with perks.
No more standing in the cold in winter dismissal
Teachers and students no longer need to stand out in the cold waiting for parents to show up during winter dismissal. They can comfortably stay warm inside while watching the PikMyKid dispatcher screen. Teachers will immediately know when the parent arrives at school and what time to precisely dismiss the student. The less time our kids spend out in the frigid cold, the better!
Stress-free absentee management
Parents can mark children absent directly through the PikMyKid application without having to call the school, Giving them more time to focus on tackling their kids cold or ill-timed flu. The school staff and the administration will get a live update of the current absentees directly to their dashboard, so they can adjust and react accordingly.
Better communication for emergencies & delays in winter Ddsmissals
Schools can quickly send custom messages to families in case of an emergency or delay during winter dismissals. Whether it be a school closure, transportation cancellation or challenge, or a deceptive snowstorm, the school administration can rest assured that parents have the most up-to-date information.
Give your parents and teachers an early present during this winter dismissal.
It’s not too late to equip your staff with the technology needed to run a quick and efficient dismissal. The less time spent out in the cold during winter dismissal, the more time we can spend indoors teaching or enjoy some hot cocoa and coffee.

Arming your teachers and parents with the right dismissal tools will keep the joy of the winter season alive and well.
