Hello Heights Families, With Pikmykid, dismissal is becoming easier by the day! If you are a car rider, the most efficient method will be to “announce” when you arrive through the app. This is a manual operation and will not automatically occur when you arrive. This greatly speeds up the dismissal process and ensures the safety and whereabouts of your student(s). If you are unable to announce, please have your student's ID(s) or car tag readily available. If your pickup mode has changed for your student(s), please update within the app before announcing. If you have any issues, please EMAIL Ms. Watt at email@example.com or Mr. Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Welcome back, Heights families! If you are a car rider, remember to display the car tags sent home or have your student's three-digit ID number(s) readily available to tell the dismissal team. This will allow us to enter your child into the dismissal line manually. The most efficient and expedient method for car riders or parent walk-ups will be to “announce” when you arrive through the app. You will only be able to announce after 2:00 pm and within limited proximity of the campus. If you have any pickup changes, please make those in the app by 1:30 p.m. Also, the app will be used to communicate the release of buses and after-school releases. If you have any issues connecting to your student in the app, please EMAIL Ms. Watt at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mr. Patterson at email@example.com. Email is the best mode of contact to ensure a prompt response for fixing technical issues. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Have a wonderful day!
Did you know January is School Board Recognition Month? TASD school board members serve students and represent their communities. Board members face complex and demanding challenges. They spend many hours serving their schools, students, and communities. Be sure to thank a school board member this month. Jesse Buchanan, President; Larry Manley, Vice President; Vickie Lacy, Secretary; Frank Coleman, Amy Leslie, Sandra Rhone, and Pam Winchell.
If anyone other than the primary guardian will be picking up, you will delegate the person(s) within the app so the dismissal team can view the authorized individuals. You will also provide car tags to those delegates. We will be more flexible as we transition today, Monday, and Tuesday. After we return from Christmas break, we will fully implement the dismissal procedures from car riders, parent walk-ups, bus riders, and dismissal changes. Other features will soon follow. We appreciate your cooperation and flexibility. If you need additional car tags or have trouble registering in the app, please EMAIL Ms. Watts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your patience during dismissal today. As we transition, it will be most helpful to the dismissal team to display the car tags sent home or have your student's ID number readily available. You will only be able to announce after 2:00 pm in the app and within a limited proximity of the campus. If you need an additional tag or have trouble registering in the app, please contact Ms. Watts at email@example.com. Linked below are some helpful videos.
