A new way to connect: Remind!

Dear Nilsen Classroom Parents,

I’m excited to share with you a new tool that will further aid in our communication between home and school: Remind.


Remind is a free service that allows you to choose how you receive short reminders via text, app, or email.

It also allows you to respond right back to me which I will receive right on my cell phone (no more missed messages on my school phone!).  More than one parent or guardian can sign up per child, and all of your contact information will be safe and is not shared with anyone.

This service will not replace our classroom website, which will still be used for longer updates and newsletters.  But it is my hope that Remind complements the website and will help you stay more connected, better informed, and more involved with your student and our class.

How do you sign up?  Follow the instructions on this PDF: remindeng.

  • Follow Option A if you want to download the app on your smartphone.
  • Don’t have a smartphone, or don’t want another app? No worries!  Follow Option B to have updates sent directly as a text to your phone.
  • And if you would prefer email over a text or app, there’s even an Option C hidden at the bottom of the page.

All three options will get the same information to you, in the way that is most convenient for you and your life.

Thank you in advance for staying connected and using Remind!
