New to Cross Country this year is Remind: A safe way for coaches to text message athletes and stay in touch with parents.
Remind helps you stay connected. You are your child's first teacher, which is why parents and teachers need to work together to help all children succeed. To support this partnership, we are using Remind, a free and safe messaging product, to keep you and your athlete up-to-date with what is happening. Coaches can choose to send quick, one-way announcements to the entire team, or start a Chat for one-to-one conversations with subscribers. These simple and short messages are sent directly to your phone, and can help you and your athletes) keep up with the schedule of the season.
Remind is safe! Personal contact information is kept private. Phone numbers are not exchanged between coaches, athletes, and parents. Messages cannot be edited or deleted, so your Announcement or Chat History is easily accessible for future reference. Athletes under the age of 13 must enter a parent’s email address to notify them of use, and can only receive one-way Announcements. Subscribers can receive Remind messages through text, email, and the app. Remind is free to use for teachers, athletes, and parents! Remind messages are less than 300 characters and sent directly to your mobile device.
