Remind 101

Remind101 is a free and safe way for teachers to communicate with parents and students through text or email.

It is as easy as 1, 2, 3...

1. Teachers can sign up for a free account.

2. Teachers create their class or classes.

3. Once a class is created the teacher can send out a text/email to invite subscribers to receive texts/emails.

After parents and/or students have subscribed the teacher can start messaging.

Remind 101 generates a domestic phone number and a class code.

Any phone that receives text messages can subscribe to receive class reminders.

The great thing about Remind 101 is that this is all done without ever sharing a personal cell phone number. Subscribers can not reply to the messages that are sent.

Theres an app for that...Teachers can access Remind 101 through the Internet or through the app. Teachers can schedule messages to be sent out at certain times. This is an awesome feature for the "night owls" who compose messages at 12:30 AM, but don't want to send messages out that late!

Every time a text message is sent out using Remind101, the teacher's name will appear at the front of the text. This will remind parents and students who don't save your Remind101 number into their phones that the text is from their teacher. Whoever receives the message can NOT reply.

Communicating with students and parents has never been easier with Remind 101! Hope this has been helpful!
