Make Dismissal
a Breeze & Safe

Transform your end of day chaos into a stress-free and ultra safe experience for staff, parents and students with Pikmykid’s award-winning school dismissal manager.

CURRENT SCHOOL REALITIES

Dismissal is often a chaotic time of day.

Many schools struggle with outdated dismissal processes that cause confusion and leave students vulnerable.

If your school is still using walkie talkies, spreadsheets, or front office calls to manage dismissal, you’re missing out on a streamlined process.

Take the burden off your staff, make it easy to communicate with parents, and most importantly build safety into daily arrival and dismissal.
