Parents - Want a more direct line to your child's teacher?  Then check out the REMIND app (formerly Remind 101) located in your smart phone's app store.

REMIND allows the teacher to send "reminders" in the form of a text message to your phone about upcoming assignments/quizzes/tests that are in your child's near future.

REMIND allows parents to help their student be responsible and excell in their academic life.

REMIND - you don't see the teacher's personal number and the teacher doesn't see your personal number - SECURE & SAFE!
