Safe, secure online dismissals for kids... without notes or phone calls!

Parents, if your school uses School Dismissal Manager (SDM), this app lets you schedule your child's school dismissal instructions for any day within the next two weeks. Your child's typical everyday instruction is already set, so only exceptions need to be entered.

Pick from your school's dismissal options and add a note if needed. Notify your school of your wishes in just a few seconds.

Get a reminder on days your child has a dismissal exception.

Your school will supply you with new login credentials at the start of the school year. Login, set your own password, then SDM is always only a click away.

If your school uses SDM's FastLane for car line management, you can check in from the car line driveway. Your check in calls your children from their classrooms and lets the car line admin know you have arrived. This makes your school's car line faster, easier, and safer for your children.

This app only works for parents in schools that use School Dismissal Manager (SDM) to streamline their dismissal process. For more information:

Good Program

This app is very user friendly. I would have given it 5 starts if it had more options to choose from in the reoccurring dismissal section. Currently you can only set a reoccurring dismissal weekly for that day of the week. The limited options for selection is the only reason I gave this app 4 stars.

Awesome App that meets all my needs

I couldn’t be happier with this app. I don’t have to burden the front office of my school with all the changes that I need for dismissing my child. I have a very busy life style as a flight attendant, with multiple guardians picking up my three kids. I can plan ahead and have everything I need in one place for all my kids. I feel safe knowing that my kids are going to the correct dismissal spot that I assigned. AMAZING APP!! THANK YOU FOR THINKING OF EVERYTHING!!

They have thought of everything!!

This is the most user friendly app for dismissal that I have ever used. This app is better than Pick my Kid. Since the school has switched over to School Dismissal Manager great improvements have been made. The carline is faster and the app is so easy on the parents. There is no need to call into the school. The app notifies the teacher and school staff in a few clicks. This has made my life easier.
