Sitka School District is excited to share that we are rolling out Remind district-wide! If you're not already familiar with Remind, it's a classroom communication tool that makes it easy to stay involved with your child's learning. Remind is free to use, and you'll be able to get and send messages on any device—even a simple text message from your phone!

As part of this rollout, official accounts will be created for all the educators, parents, and students at all schools. On Monday, March 30, you'll receive an email and/or text message from Remind. All you need to do is follow the steps in the message to finish setting up your account.

Once you activate your account, please change your account settings to allow you to make and receive voice calls. Teachers and staff working at home will use Remind to call you as needed. Remind keeps your phone numbers private from each other!

Here is a video demo to see how Remind works:

If you already have a Remind account, they will automatically merge if you used the same contact information (phone, email) you gave the school. If not, you will be able to merge them by contacting customer service.
