At Derry Village School we are introducing a new system that will help parents make dismissal changes efficiently and conveniently for your child. It is called PickUp Patrol. This system is being funded through the Derry Village School PTA. We will begin with a 90 day pilot of the program.
PickUp Patrol is a cloud-based web application that automates the after-school dismissal process by combining powerful tools for school offices and a convenient mobile app for parents. It eliminates the need for parents to write notes or make phone calls to change their children’s after-school plans which increases office productivity, decreases classroom interruptions, and assists with the accuracy of end-of-day student safety.
To make a dismissal change you will simply login, select a date, choose your child ’s name and a dismissal option, then click on submit and that’s it! You can make plan changes at your convenience, and submit them days, weeks, or even months in advance. And, for added security, you’ll receive a confirmation email each time a change is made.
