Remind helps you reach students and parent where they are.


Save time with quick, simple communication

Send or schedule quick announcements to an entire class or group, or personalize messages for individuals and small groups.

Flexible features

Broadcast one-way messages or choose to send and receive messages.

Reach students and parents on any device

Messages can be received on any device. Students and parents don’t need a smartphone—any phone that receives text messages will work.

Manage communication

Set office hours to let participants know the best time to reach you, and disable replies in a conversation when you need to.

How does Remind help keep messaging safe?

Safety is our top priority.

Phone numbers stay private

Students and parents don’t see your phone numbers, and you don’t see theirs. All messages come from Remind phone numbers.

Message history is always available

Teachers, students, and parents can access and download a complete message history at any time.

Manage your classes

You can always change your class codes and remove participants from your classes.

Our community works together to keep Remind safe

Everyone on Remind can flag inappropriate usage if they see it. Our Community Guidelines outline best practices for keeping Remind safe.

Add students and parents to your class

As students and parents join your class, their names will instantly appear in your participant list.

  1. Tell participants in person

    Students and parents can join by texting the class code to the phone number 81010.* 81010 is the same for everyone, but the class code (like @math101) is unique to each class.
    * For US residents only.

  2. Add people from your account

    You can add students and parents with their email addresses, cell phone numbers, or any combination of the two. You can even copy and paste contact information from a spreadsheet.

  3. Get Remind

    Students and parents can sign up for Remind accounts by visiting remind.com or downloading the app at rmd.me. They can join your class with your unique class code.
