With the ever increasing technology availability, I have something great to share with you! I know life can get a bit hectic when kids start school and deadlines can become inundating. It is completely optional but I think you will find this service a great asset.
The program is called Remind101. It is a program set up for teachers to send out important messages to all the parents with one text and/or email. The service is free, depending on your cellular service text messaging rates (meaning standard text messaging rates apply). It will strictly be used for my classroom only. This is a closed system. We will not have access to each other’s cell phone numbers or email addresses. You will not be able to respond to any text/email that I send from this service.
My hope is to use this service to give updates and reminders regarding delayed openings, school schedule changes, report card distribution dates, conference dates and important other important events/information. Rest assured that you will not receive advertisement texts/emails and your phone number/email addresses will remain private.
You may choose to opt out at any time by replying ‘stop’.
I am excited to use Remind101! I feel it will be an excellent way to communicate with each of you. It is my hope that this will help strengthen the home-school connection.
Remember, you can still contact me via email, phone or text for anything. This will just help me get information out to everyone at once. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
