Getting Started with Remind and Parent/Teacher Communication

Dear Coos Bay School District Families, 
By now you most likely have received a text message, email, or app update from a teacher or principal via Remind. You may be asking, What is Remind? How do I update my settings? OR, if you haven't received a message, How do I join Remind so I don't miss important information? Here is a guide to help you successfully connect with your teacher and school. In these challenging times, communication is key for all of as as we navigate through this year. If you do not have a Remind Class Code or a School Code, please contact your child's teacher or school
What is Remind? Remind is a communication platform that helps educators reach students and parents. With Remind, you can send messages to your teachers through email, Remind’s mobile app, the web, and even text. Messages can also be translated into more than 90 languages before you send them.
Create a free account: If you've already received a text message or e-mail from your teacher or school, that means you have an account. If you don't know your password, you can go to Click "Log in" and click "Forgot?". By putting in your cell number, or e-mail, you will be sent reset instructions.  
Join a class or school: You can join a class or school to receive Remind messages via text, email, and/or push notification. You’ll need to receive a class or school code from a teacher or school administrator.
  • Join by text: Text a unique class or school code to a Remind phone number.
  • Join online: Visit and enter the class or school code along with your mobile
    phone number. You'll get text notifications at the number you entered.
  • Join via mobile app: Download the mobile app for iOS and Android devices and create a new
    account (or log in if you already have one.) To join a class, tap the + by Classes Joined and either
    join with your class code or search for your class. You'll automatically get app notifications.
Merge duplicate accounts: If you have duplicate accounts, you can self-merge them by logging into one account and adding the contact point (phone/email) from the other account in your Account settings.
Change your notification preferences: You can add, remove, or edit your phone number and email as well as adjust your app and desktop notifications via your Remind dashboard, under Account settings.

Connect to family members: Remind allows for family member connections between students and parents. Go to your Account settings in the top left corner, and find the option to add your child.
