As you may remember in January, Remind and Verizon were having some discussions regarding the free Remind service and texts over other cellular carrier's networks. Well, Remind has decided to start charging for using their service. We did some research and we will save money by joining several other schools in simply upgrading our current Gradelink account to include the same text services that Remind offered (along with NEW voice messaging). The best part is that this is a much cheaper alternate and YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO SIGN UP! The only thing that we ask is that you log into your Gradelink account and make sure your email(s) and cell phone number(s) are correct and updated.
Personally, I am sad to leave Remind. I have used it professionally for many years at SJW and Bishop Alemany High School, but it is the right decision.
