Starting this August, we will be using a mass messaging system called REMIND to notify you of upcoming events, school closings, or other pressing information. This system allows us to keep you informed without tying up the school phone lines.
*Remind is Safe
Personal Contact information is kept private. Phone numbers are not exchanged between teachers and parents.
Messages CANNOT be edited or deleted, so your Announcement or Chat History is easily accessible for future
*Remind is FREE!
You can set up a free account on the website or the app.
You DO NOT have to have a SmartPhone to use remind. You can set up an account through the website and receive
text messages. http://www.remind.com
Please follow the simple instructions below if you'd like to sign up now! You may sign up at any time. You may opt out at any time. You will NEVER receive any SPAM type messages from this system.
In your cell phone's messaging app/icon, begin a new message.
In the "To/Recipients" box type 81010
In the "Message" box type: @grand55
Now press "Send" or your Message Envelope icon.
Your screen should look something like the one below.
*Ta-da! Easy as 1, 2, 3, and you're signed up to receive notificaitons from our school. You'll receive a confirmation text from REMIND letting you know your sign up was successful.
**If your phone number changes, you MUST sign up to REMIND under the NEW number.
***We will still use Channel 7 KSWO for School Closing notifications. Some teachers may also use their personal cell phones and Facebook accounts to notify as well. Check with your child's teacher to see if those options are available.
