Activate Voice Calling on Remind

Posted by Sarah Ferrency on 3/31/2020 4:00:00 PM

On Monday, all families should have received an email or text messaging with an invitation to create a Remind account, and merge it with any pre-existing accounts. Doing so will ensure families are connected to all of their children's teachers, both during this closure and moving forward. If you did not receive this email or text and would like to be added, please contact your school principal or secretary. You can call the main school phone line or email them. You may also need to check your spam email folder.

SSD is asking all families to create an account from the link in the email/text, and enable voice calling in Settings. Many teachers and staff working from home would like to be able to call families to stay connected and provide support. Calling from Remind allows staff to keep their home phone numbers private, and provides additional tools for teachers to track the contacts they make.

You can find guides for enabling voice calling in a web browser here, or on the phone app here.
