Sign Up Guidance Dept. to Use Remind101 as a Safe Way to Text Parents & Students;  Parents Must Sign Up to Receive the One-Way Notification
 
The Middle/High School Guidance Department are using Remind101 to send out reminder texts to parents and students about open house, parent-teacher conferences, SAT and PSAT deadlines, college/BOCES field trips, form deadlines and course scheduling information.

 

Parents and students must sign up annually to receive information through Remind101. Remind101 is a one-way broadcast system to push out notifications. The school counselors cannot send individual messages to parents or students, and parents/students cannot reply through Remind101. The system is set up so the counselors never see parents’ or students’ phone numbers.

 

The Guidance Department has set up seven classes (listed below). For each class a parent/student would have to text a certain code to a designated phone number in order to join that group. At the high school level, events are typically grade specific so each class is separated into an individual group. If a parent had a child in 9th and 11th grade, they would have to subscribe to both groups. Parents can opt out at any time; they'll get a text message telling them how.

 

To join a specific group, text the following codes to this number - 81010.
 
Read the directions here - You can also get messages emailed.
 
PLEASE NOTE: SIGN-UP IS ANNUALLY
High school parents who signed up last year must sign up again this year for a new class. 
Middle school parents who signed up last year must also sign up again.
