If you’re not already familiar with Remind, it’s a classroom communication tool that makes it easy to stay involved with your child’s learning. Remind is free to use, and you’ll be able to get and send messages on any device—even a simple text message from your phone! There is also an app that can be downloaded with options for you to determine how would like to receive your messages.
The District also uses this platform to send any important messages that come from the Superintendent's Office and School Administration regarding weather emergencies, school closings, urgent notifications, or announcements.
You do not need to sign up to receive Remind messages if you have a learner in a school building. Official accounts are automatically created for all our parents using the information that is in PowerSchool, our student information system. It is extremely important that you complete the annual student information update each year, so we have the most recent phone numbers and email addresses.
If you have not completed the annual student update, this can be completed through your PowerSchool Parent Portal. When you complete the update, if entering in a mobile phone that receives SMS or an email address for a contact, you will be given the option to opt in to receive REMIND alerts.
