Remind is a wonderful tool for teachers, students and parents. I encourage parents, and students, who have cell phones, e-mails, or tablets to sign up for this communication tool.
In the past, when my former students have had questions about a homework assignment, I have been able to help quickly. If they have been absent, I have been able to give them their make up work and they are caught up before they return; this is only if they ask for the work!
The best part, you are notified almost as fast as I am if school is canceled, so you can roll over and go back to sleep! Snooze away!
I often give bonus points to the first to respond to my questions that I send out via Remind. So, don't be afraid, sign up today!
