In keeping with our idea of open classroom communication, I will be using the Remind app in my classroom this year. Remind will help to keep you informed of classroom activities and assignments. Remind is a free service that lets me send quick messages via text, push notifications, or email to everyone involved with the class. We’ll be able to stay in touch without revealing our personal contact information. Signing up for my messages on Remind is easy.
Receive messages via text message:
☐ Step 1. Text your unique class code to 81010
☐ Step 2. Reply to the message from the Remind team with your first and last name, and you’re in!
Receive messages via push notification:
☐ Step 1. Download the Remind app on your Android or iOS device, or go to rmd.me/a to install the app.
☐ Step 2. Once you’ve downloaded the app, create a parent account with your email address.
☐ Step 3 Go to the Classes tab, tap the +, and enter the unique class code. That’s it!
Thanks for signing up for my class on Remind! Here’s some information that might be helpful:
Your personal contact information is not visible to me or the school.
I can send announcements to the entire class or direct messages in individual and group conversations (if the student is over the age of 13).
I may choose to receive messages on Remind.
All messages are recorded and easily accessible in case they need to be referenced in the future.
Messages from my class will be sent directly to your phone or email account.
EACH class has its own unique code. Students will only be given codes for his or her own, individual class.
