September 2, 2022
Dear Montgomery Families,
Starting Tuesday, September 6, 2022, we will be using a system called PickUp Patrol to help track student dismissals. PickUp Patrol (PUP) will provide you with a convenient way to make changes to your children’s dismissal plans.
You will be receiving an email from PUP to register and log into your account THIS WEEKEND. Please take the time to watch the video and learn to navigate PUP.
Most importantly, PUP will help us ensure that our students are safely dismissed to their correct after-school destinations.
Use the PUP web app for:
ATTENDANCE: Notify the school office by using PUP when your child will be absent, arriving late or leaving early.
- DISMISSAL CHANGES: Submit changes to your child’s regular (Default) dismissal plans. For example:
A student normally rides the bus, but is getting picked up today.
- A student usually goes to the Afternoons Program, but is leaving early for an appointment.
Parents will need to make ALL changes for OT Sports, Enrichment classes, Middle School Late Game Day Pick Ups, and any other programs happening after the school day ends.
How it works:
Your child is assigned a dismissal plan at the start of the year, The Default Plan. This is the plan they will regularly follow on normal days. We call this the Default Plan. Whenever you have a day to day change to the Default Plan, you’ll submit a change through the PUP app for that day’s change. When the plan is submitted, the school will be notified and your child’s teacher will relay the change to them.
All plan changes should be entered in PickUp Patrol. Notes, emails or phone calls will not be accepted for changes after September 6, 2022, except in emergencies.
Getting started with PUP:
REGISTER: You will receive a registration email this weekend from PickUp Patrol (PUP) with a link to set up your account.The PUP web app is free to parents and you can use it from your smartphone or computer. PUP is not accessed through the app stores. Instead, for easy access, follow the instructions in your registration email for how to add it to your phone’s home screen.
- ENTER DEFAULT PLANS: Once you register, log into your PickUp Patrol account before Sunday, September 4, 2022 to confirm your child’s default dismissal plan. It’s important that you complete this step so that we can accurately dismiss your children.
Thank you for using PUP to make safety a priority and to ensure our dismissal process is efficient for all our students.
