Remind 101 is a free service that allows teachers to send free text message reminders to their students and parents. Setting up an account is easy and takes less than 5 minutes. Once you set up your account, you send your class phone number and class code to parents and students that are interested in receiving text message reminders from you. Some teachers in our district have started using this service as a way to send homework assignments, reminders about permissions slips or field trips, or really anything you may want to communicate home.
