Have you heard about “Remind”? It is an app that lets families sign up to receive short text messages directly from teachers. The application is used on the school “side” so you do not need to download an application. Families voluntarily sign up and then receive text message reminders (or email if you prefer) straight to their phones. Some benefits to the service are the following:
• You give your cell phone number in order to receive the text message, but your number stays private.
• The messages are short (140 characters) and quick to read.
• All messages will show “McMahon & Gavrin” listed below a (234) phone number, before the message.
• You can unsubscribe at any time.
To sign up:
Send a text to the following number:781-558-9920
In the text message box, text the following: @mcmahonga
If you prefer to receive an email, go to: www.remind.com/join/mcmahonga
