Remind App for Elementary
Communication is essential for bulding school-family partnerships. One of the main reaons for providing the Elementary Newsletter each week is to inform families of news around the school and information on upcoming events. The elementary is going to continue all the ways of communication we have always done, but we are also going to offer families another app. Remind is a free text messaging app that helps teachers, students, and parents communicate quickly and efficiently. This will not take the place of the ALL CALL SYSTEM used for weather realted announcements and emergency notifications.
Remind messages can be received by text, appm email, or web-no smartphones necessary. It is free to use for teachers, students, and parents. Standard text messaging rates apply to text notifications, but there are no additional costs. In other words, getting a Remind message is like getting a message from friend. Some of the Thayer Central classroom teachers already us Remind within their classroom. You would also have to sign up for this option as well. See the attachment for directions for signing up for Remind notifications.
