This year we are implementing the Remind App and communication platform to help us better communicate between home and school. This platform allows you to receive messages through several different formats text, email and in app notifications. If you have the app downloaded to your phone you will receive notifications in the app. If we have your email you may receive email notifications as well if you don’t have a smart phone but sign up via text you will receive text messages.
I am asking our teachers and coaches to use the remind app to communicate with students and parents this year. This will be the main source of communication between teachers and parents. If you have a smart phone please download the app.
Remind is a communication platform that makes it easier for educators, students, and parents to work together. Remind has easy-to-use features that allow schools and districts to activate engagement across their communities. Remind allows for the sending of messages via SMS, in-app notifications, or email and phone calls without sharing personal contact information. Remind is now an official communication platform for Arthur County Schools.
Why did Arthur County Schools choose Remind?
For the 2021-2022 school year, Arthur County Schools will use Remind for the primary purposes of:
The platform works at many levels, district wide, school wide and the classroom or group level,
Remind has roles that reflect the school community: teacher, student, parent, administrator, and no role. Each role has different abilities.
Recently we had an event that we needed to close school due to a power outage. I was unable to activate our notification system in order to communicate the need to close school for the day.
If you want to be able to receive closing information through this app, please do one of following to receive announcements sent for this group or class. This will back up our current system.
