Welcome to REMIND
Hello Parents/Guardian and Students,
To help you keep up with some information that your child has received during the day, I will be using a program called: “REMIND.” LISTED below is the instructions on how to sign up. NOTE that parents will have there own messaging system. So you do not need to sign up for both your child's class and parent.
To sign up as a Parent, click on the link below for the instructions.
To sign up as a student in my 1st period class, click on the link below for the instructions.
To sign up as a student in my 2nd period class, click on the link below for the instructions.
To sign up as a student in my 4th period class, click on the link below for the instructions.
To sign up as a student in my 5th period class,, click on the link below for the instructions.
I hope this will help with communicating which assignments are due and other events that are happening in the 8th grade. PLEASE understand that the student is STILL responsible for all assignments given to them and NOT to rely on this service for accountability. There will be times when I will not post assignments.
As for REMIND, it is a free, safe, easy-to-use communication tool that connects instantly with students and parents. Students and parents opt-in to join classes via a unique class code that I will provide to you (SEE ABOVE). This will allow an instant message reminder to every student and parent who sign up for my class. You will receive it as a text message (data and message rate may be applied) and an email. That is up to you as to what you prefer. There is a communication reminder to those who sign up that allow you (and students) to send a message to me, if help is needed.
ALL phone numbers are always kept private so communication is 100% safe and secure.
Please understand that I am NOT avaliable 24/7 and this is to be used for help, only when it is important.
You DO NOT need a smart phone for this. Only a cell phone that can receive TEXT messages or an EMAIL.
So if interested, i highly encourage you to PLEASE sign up for "REMIND"
You can: Download the FREE app for your smart phone (looks like a white cloud with blue background) if you like BUT not necessary.
