PikMyKid

School safety platform for dismissal automation

4.57/5 (49 reviews)

PikMyKid overview

What is PikMyKid?

PikMyKid is a cloud-based school safety solution which enables school districts, charter/private schools, after-school programs, YMCAs, carpools, and daycare facilities to manage dismissal automation, emergency preparedness, traffic and liability mitigation with features such as daily dismissal plans, car line management, school bus tracking, parent messaging, emergency notifications, and more. A native iOS and Android app enables parents to manage their child’s pick up on-the-go via their mobile device.

PikMyKid connects schools, teachers, and parents with real-time messaging and alerts. Online, real-time communication helps users manage the school dismissal process safely and effectively. With PikMyKid, parents can assign pick-up permissions for certain days or times, and set pick up modes, as well as assign their kids to after school care, sports, or clubs. PikMyKid facilitates carpool matching and predictive traffic mitigation with advanced algorithms and machine learning, helping parents find the best routes and carpooling options.

A dismissal dashboard provides teachers with a quick overview of the day’s dismissal activity, allowing them to check delegations, absent students, and pick up mode changes at-a-glance. Reporting tools give users valuable insight into the dismissal process and overall school safety performance.

Best Dismissal Management ever.

Pros
On the staff side, very user friendly. Much better than walkies and overhead announcements.

Cons
While the customer satisfaction reps are GREAT, I wish there was a way to upload corrections to the database. I also wish that rather than using their generated "School ID Number", that the primary key for students was the actual student number issued by the state.

Response from PikMyKid


Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy our platform is able to help schools like yours.
We do have the ability for schools to use their own ID numbers for students, but mostly recommend against it for security purposes (used in the app for pick up, can be displayed on car-tags for quick lookup etc) and also length of numbers could effect efficiency in some cases during dismissal. If you would like to adjust the IDs ahead of the 2021-22 school year please let us know-- we would be glad to help. We also offer SFTP sync options if you would like to explore that for automatic data corrections via your SIS. We look forward to helping further enhance your PikMyKid experience!

Works Great!

Peace of mind. We now know exactly where our students are. Communication is better, and interrupting the classroom with change of dismissal for individual students is a thing of the past.

Pros
The software does exactly what it says it will. I can use this software with confidence that everything will just work. Notifications are huge for us! Parents are now consistently kept in the loop.

Cons
I wish the parents could have a web portal as well instead of forcing them to use an app. Also, you need to make sure you have good wifi outside for checking parents in. Once that is done, you are all set!

Hey there Aaron,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review PikMyKid. We greatly appreciate it. Thank you for pointing out that "The software does exactly what it says it will". We work hard to stay loyal and true to all that we market to consumers.

In regards to parents having a dashboard, we will discuss and work it into our next survey of improvements with our schools. And yes, good wifi is a must. Which we can now help with depending on the school's wifi structure.

"Peace of mind" is what we strive for.

Thank you, Aaron,

The PikMyKid team

Pros
I like that I can manage all parents and students in the school and monitor how they will be picked up each day.

Cons
I dislike the notifications you can send because they do not always work correctly and you cannot see them in the system.

Response from PikMyKid

Pros
PIKMYKID is a great support for HCS students and staff. It keep our students safe, allows parents to remain out of our building and allows dismissal to happen in about five minutes. Prior to the implementation of PIKMYKID it took us about 30 minutes for dismissal and we often had many adults in our building and often did not know who was picking up students. We are grateful for the security features PIKMY KID allows us to have in place.

Cons
The program runs smooth with no issues.

Response from PikMyKid

Using Pikmykid has drastically cut down on the phone calls to change transportation. We are able to manage our students transportation much more efficiently.

Pros
It is easy to navigate. Customer service is absolutely the Best!

Cons
You could look at families/siblings, not always just an individual. Not all buses, daycares, etc.. were listed under afterschool. Parents get confused.

Response from PikMyKid
