“Once a teacher starts to use the tool, it tends to spread through the rest of the school like wildfire. Domonique Roberts, a history teacher at University High School in Newark, N.J., has been using Remind to communicate better with parents. 'I have been messaging one student’s mom, telling her when he’s not doing homework, or if he fell asleep in class today,' Roberts says. 'She’s on top of it and his grade improved by two letter grades from the first marking period to the second, just by keeping up with her.'” – Fast Company
“…Remind’s features have proved especially popular in low-income districts, where parent engagement is a key issue for teachers, and parents’ sometimes erratic work schedules can make it difficult to get in touch by phone.” – Buzzfeed

So efficient. I love the way the text feature!
A must App! So convenient and super easy to use🤗
This app is great! Unfortunately, I may be looking for alternatives now that text lengths have been dramatically reduced. I am not a fan of my students always having to click a link now to finish reading messages I send out. :-(
1) you can't assume the same iTunes account is the same person. Often parents could share one. 2) add email button in the app does not work 3) could not find my daughter's teach ( only one teacher comes up for CBI Boca Raton) App needs search by teacher name option first and then option to narrow down by school name if there is more than one 5) there is definitely some disconnect between user setup via web site vs app. Needs to be addressed
So far so good with swift and fast navigation of this app for my elementary school child!
This app is awesome! Super easy to use and I love that I can keep in contact with my child's teacher and get reminders and updates on what happens in the classroom!
I'm able to find my homework reminders and notes from class sent by my teachers, but the app won't let me reply.
It's great! Not only can you use it for classrooms, but on many different platforms. For example, my friend uses it to send weather alerts.
I absolutely love this app. It makes it so easy to communicate with my child's teachers!
Love this app! It makes it easy to communicate with my childrens' teachers. My kids' teacher are always quick to respond to my questions. Much better than waiting for the end of the day to try to call or email.
This app is awesome.
This is an awesome app! It is an amazing tool to have in the classroom and great for forgetful students.
Awesome, so much more practical than using online learning systems for announcements and very user friendly!
I have to say this app has help me keep in touch with the parents in my class. They love this app as well.
I absolutely love this app!!! There are times when my daughters teacher has a question an she send me a message on here and we're are to communicate. I am not always able to answer my phone because of work, so it's much easier for me to reply to a text message then you have to really my time to call back. The only thing is that I wish all the teachers would use this but other then that I'm in love 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👍🏼👍🏼
I got onto the wrong school and it will not let me delete it. Very confusing app.
This app is very convenient for group announcements for a variety of groups and for the whole family.

I really love using Remind, but the app can be troublesome with adding classes on a mobile device and then the phone can't find them.
I appreciate being able to use this to communicate with parents and guardians of my students from nearly anywhere.
