Dear VTT Families,

Today was our first time using the PikMyKid app. Thank you for following the many instructions we sent to facilitate picking up your children at the end of the school day. We greatly appreciate your patience as we iron out the wrinkles.

Based on today's experience, we ask that you follow these tips to ensure an even smoother and safer drop off and pick up routine.

  1. In order to avoid line ups and congesting our streets, do NOT come to VTT before 8:10 a.m. (at either entrance). VTT's doors will only open to students from 8:15 a.m.
  2. Do NOT arrive before 2:50 p.m. to pick up your children. Vehicles will only be able to enter the parkade from 2:50 p.m.
  3. Parents cannot "announce" themselves on the PikMyKid app before 2:50 p.m.
  4. If you are coming on foot ("Walker/Cyclist") to pick up your children and you have children in early childhood and/or SK (and older siblings), please pick up from 26th Avenue.
  5. If you are coming on foot ("Walker/Cyclist") to pick up your children and you only have children in grades 1-7, please pick up from the gate on Oak Street & 27th Avenue.
  6. If your child is an "Independent Walker/Cyclist" and needs to leave at 2:55 p.m., select the "Independent Walkers 2:55pm” option on the PikMyKid app. Otherwise these students will be dismissed at 3:20 p.m. (All "Independent Walkers/Cyclists" must complete this form and email it to
  7. Please follow the schedule below to pick up your children. A staggered dismissal will help ease traffic congestion and expedite the process.

Thank you again for partnering with us to make this new system work for all!
