School Dismissal Update

School Dismissal Update
Posted on 10/18/2020

Main Idea: We use the School Dismissal Manager to manage all dismissal and changes in way home for all students every day.

How Do I Set the Default Way Home?

  • In the SDM app, click on the menu button and choose “Default Dismissals”.
  • On the website, click “Set/View Defaults”.

It is essential that every child – including bus riders, walkers, those who go to SACC, and those who stay for tutoring – has a default dismissal set. If you have used the app for the car line, you already have a default dismissal set.

How Do I Change My Child’s Way Home?

For example, if your children typically ride the bus, and you want them to be picked up by car, you will need to indicate that through the app or website.

  • On the App or the Website:
    • Click on the Calendar date of the change
    • Click “Add Exception” for each child
    • Choose an exception
  • You can change your child’s way home in advance or until 2:30pm each day.

How Do I Allow Another Adult to Pick Up My Child?

DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR 6-DIGIT PIN NUMBER. If you have already done this, let me know and I can remedy it.

  • On the App or the Website:
    • Click on the Calendar date of the change
    • Click “Add Exception” for each child
    • Choose “Car Line” or “Walker”
    • Select “Someone Else” as picking up your child and follow the prompts.

What if I am Picking Up My Child in the Middle of the Day?

Continue to sign children out from the office for mid-day dismissals.
