I will be using Remind this semester to communicate with students and parents.  Remind is a website that provides a safe way for teachers to text message or email students and parents.  Remind allows teachers to send messages to both students and parents without the exchange of phone numbers.  Teachers never see student phone numbers.  Students never see the teacher's phone number.
