Notify parents about Remind

Getting Started

Introducing parents to Remind? Here's a letter you can customize for an email or handout.

Dear parents,

Welcome to [CLASS NAME]! I'm using Remind to help keep you informed about important news and updates. Remind is a free service that allows you to get messages directly on your phone.

Joining my class on Remind is easy. You can choose whether you prefer text messages or smartphone notifications.

Signing up for text messages

  1. Text my class code @[CLASS CODE] to the phone number 81010 or [REMIND PHONE NUMBER].
  2. Reply to the text messages from the Remind team.

Signing up for smartphone notifications

  1. Download the Remind app on your Android or iOS device. Click here for a link to the apps:
  2. Open the app and create an account (or log in if you already have one).
  3. Tap the + by classes joined and enter my class code @[CLASS CODE].

That's all you need to do to start receiving messages!

A few other things you might like to know:

  • Our personal contact information (like cell phone numbers) will not be visible on Remind.
  • All of our messages will be recorded in communication logs that you can access and download.
  • I may choose to receive messages on Remind.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I'm looking forward to connecting with you!
