Communication Tools

The Rock Island-Milan School District uses the communication tools listed below as a way to communicate with parents and staff. 
The RIMSD 41 website is the primary source of information for the school district and each school building. The web calendar is the place where school events are listed as well as overall district holidays and Board of Education meeting notices. The school district does use Social Media to distribute information, however applications like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are not intended to be two-way communication tools. 
Remind is a messaging app for communication between teachers and their students and families and is certified by iKeepSafe for privacy practices related to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. RIMSD #41 pays for a school district subscription and also uses it for mass notification purposes. The Remind syncs with the RIMSD K12 database each evening.  More >>
