The Upbeat Club has set up a text messaging account with Remind — a leading communications solution for teachers and extracurricular activity leaders. The purpose of this account will be to:
- inform you of cancellations or changes due to weather or unexpected circumstances,
- give parents “We’re departing now” alerts upon return from trips or competitions,
- give parents “We’re about 15 minutes away” alerts upon return from trips or competitions,
- deliver competition results and
- deliver urgent reminders (e.g., “Bring $14 today to pay for your cummerbund and bow tie.”).
If you have a smartphone, alerts will come across as push notifications from the free Remind app (if you install the app). If you have a cellphone or do not want to install the free Remind app on your smartphone, the alerts will come across as text messages.
