School Dismissal Manager:
This year we will be implementing a new piece of software to automate dismissal changes and absence notification. We piloted School Dismissal Manager internally at the end of last year and were very pleased with the results.
Using School Dismissal Manager with your desktop or smartphone browser, you can quickly and easily update instructions when your child’s dismissal needs to be changed.
This service will take place of the practice of making dismissal changes through the main office. The easy-to-use mobile and desktop interface will allow you to make these changes in advance or for the current day. You can also report absences, early dismissals, and even schedule recurring dismissal instructions for after-school activities such as Art Club, Drama Kids, Science Club or Lego League on the desktop version. Free apps are also available for Android and iPhone users.
School Dismissal Manager will provide us with a more organized and efficient tracking system for afternoon dismissals.
All BFCCPS received registration details on Wednesday, August 15th. We ask all families to update their dismissal instructions using School Dismissal Manager by 9 am on August 24th so we can ensure we have accurate information on how your child(ren) should be sent home. If you need assistance with your School Dismissal Manager account school personnel will be available during the Back to School Celebration on Thursday, August 24th.
