Remind101

Remind101 is a FREE computer program that allows teachers to send text messages to parents and students without actually texting or revealing your phone number. It’s done through the computer and is one-way so you cannot be texted back. You never know the numbers of those who receive the messages, and vice versa. Parents and/or students must sign up in order to receive texts, and I imagine that both parties will be charged depending on what texting plan they have. You can organize your classes on Remind101 and schedule updates to be sent at specific times in the future if not immediately. With parent permission, it would be great program for students as well (to send them reminders), since today’s kids seem to be attached to their phones.
