Klem South Family Update

August 31, 2020- Quick Reminders

PikMyKid

Dear Families:


Whether you have an Android phone or an iPhone, at your convenience, visit the appropriate app store and download the PikMyKid app. Once downloaded, the registration process is very simple. More information on that below.


We will begin using the PikMyKid system on the first day of school, so get ready. Here are a couple highlights for you to consider:


1. You will be able to easily change the pickup individual and the pickup mode up to 30 minutes before dismissal. You will receive a notification acknowledging that change.


2. You will receive a notification from our school as your child leaves campus. This means you will be aware of the time your child is dismissed, whether it be on a bus, by walking/biking, in the car line, or to WonderCare.


3. The App will remind you every day to complete the required health screening for your child!


On September 1, we will mail home your child’s teacher assignment and their PikMyKid Car Tag. As you register in the App, use the number you receive in the mail. You can delegate alternate individuals, but they should have the App also as it will send a matching number to the phone for us to validate the correct person is picking up the proper child. If you are part of a car pool, each child’s number will be sent to the phone for validation. You will be asked for the necessary information (Child Name, Grade, Teacher, Dismissal Mode, & Car Tag Number) upon registration.


PikMyKid can be used from the App, a computer browser, or using the printed Car Tag that will be mailed home before the first day of school.


Respectfully,

The Klem South Team

Water Bottles

If you haven't purchased a water bottle for the upcoming school year, might we suggest a reusable bottle with a straw. This will make taking a drink easy with a mask.


All water fountains will be turned off in the school but our bottle fillers will be in use.
