FAQ for Parents/Guardians:
What email is used for my Remind account?
Remind accounts are generated from the information in PowerSchool (our student information system). Remind accounts have been generated using the primary guardian’s contact information. Additional guardians/caregivers can easily subscribe to join their child’s class.
How will I receive communication through Remind?
Parents/caregivers can choose between email, text messages, and app notifications to receive messages sent by educators and schools. Once logged into Remind from a computer or smartphone, students and families can pick the way they want to receive the communications in their settings. This article contains information about changing your notification settings in Remind.

Remind is currently an optional tool and your child’s teacher may be using other communication tools.
