Why does Mr. Harris want to use Remind to communicate?
Students today are very busy, and they communicate primarily by texting. The purpose is to provide students and parents with timely reminders of upcoming band events, practices, and anything else band related. These messages travel one-way only, from the Bassett Band Remind to students and or parents; you cannot respond to texts, and there will not be an on-going conversation of any kind. It is very safe and, hopefully, very effective. Parents, together with your student, are encouraged to sign up for these messages so both can stay up-to-date.
How does a student or parent sign up for a teacher’s messages?
As a student or parent, you never need to come to a website or create an account. To sign up, you need to get the Remind band code and band phone number. You then have the option to receive messages via text, email, or both.
To receive text messages: Text @class code to 81010. See the class codes below. **Parent Reminds will only send out information that parents need to know.
** Parent Marching Band – Text to 81010 – Message @abfhdc
** Student Marching Band – Text to 81010 – Message @eead2b2
How do students or parents opt out of receiving messages?
Text message: To unsubscribe from all band reminds, reply with the word “unsubscribe” or text @LEAVE.
