PickUp Patrol Now Offered K-8

Following a successful kickoff last year, Windham School District will be using the PickUp Patrol web application to better manage the dismissal process for all our students Grades K-8. 

On Thursday, August 29 GBS, WCS, and WMS will send out invites for parents to join PickUp Patrol.  Parents of multiple children only need to register ONCE.  If a parent set up a PickUp Patrol account last year there is no need to register again, just login. 

Children are tied to parents via their PowerSchool parent email address.  If the parent email is the same for multiple children, those children will all appear in the parent’s account no matter what building they are in.  If a parent has multiple students in the district but receives an invite to two different email addresses please contact the office for the child that needs the email address tied to them in PowerSchool updated. All children should have the same parent contact information.

How PickUp Patrol Works:

  • PickUp Patrol (PUP) is free to parents and is accessed from a smartphone or computer.
  • To make a dismissal change, simply log in, select a date, child, and a plan change option.  Then hit submit and that’s it!
  • Changes and absences can be entered months in advance or submitted up until the cut-off time for each school.
  • Teachers will be automatically notified of any dismissal changes for the day and will communicate them to students.

Please Note:  

  • Parent dismissal cutoff time will be 1:20 pm at WCS/WMS and 2:00 pm at GBS.  
  • WCS and WMS do not offer a bus change option. GBS will allow bus changes as long as the reason why is well noted. 
  • Pickup Patrol is for dismissals only, NOT absences. Please continue to use each building’s ABSENCE LINE or ATTENDANCE EMAIL. 

Parents will be allowed to enter each student’s daily default schedule.  Golden Brook will be inputting the default bus schedule for each child over the next few days to make certain there is a complete list of dismissals for every GBS student by the first day of school then the parent ability to change the default will be turned off, further default changes would require a note.

Parents are encouraged to take advantage of the convenience and simplicity of PickUp Patrol!
