RIMSD #41 has contracted with Remind for a new district-level upgrade to provide a safe and transparent means for all educators, activity sponsors and coaches to communicate with students via their cell phones.
If you're not already familiar with Remind (formerly Remind 101), it is a messaging tool that helps teachers engage students and parents every day as well as school administrators who wish to connect with their community school-wide.
There is no cost to parents to use Remind and ALL INFORMATION IS SAFE AND CONFIDENTIAL! Parents can expect communications from the school district and from their child's individual school through Remind. Parents can also choose to receive messages via text, email or through the Remind app. The Remind app is not required to receive messages.
As part of the RIMSD #41 rollout, official accounts will be created for all the educators, parents, and students in the Rock Island-Milan School District. At the beginning of the 4th quarter of the 2019-2020 school year, parents will receive an email or text message from Remind. Simply follow the steps in the message to finish setting up the account.
If you do not receive a notification from Remind by Thursday, April 9, contact your student’s school to verify the cell phone information we have in the student system is correct.
Some of the safety features of the RIMSD #41 Remind account include:
- Users can safely text message while safeguarding personal cell numbers
- Messages will be stored in a district message archive
- Messages can easily be translated for student or parents who do not speak English
- A voice conversation option via cell phone
We're excited to make connecting with our families safe and more engaging!
