Barrow County School System is focused on improving how we communicate with families. Even before we began Learning from Home, BCSS recognized we needed to improve the communication tools available to teachers and families. We want to give parents more control and confidence in the communication they are receiving from schools, and ultimately strengthen those relationships.
To provide more customized options for how families want to receive communication from your child's teachers, school and the school system, BCSS has partnered with Remind. Remind is a Communication Tool that provides a number of features including text messaging, translation, and voice calling.
Once a teacher has claimed their class roster in Remind, then students and parents (listed in Infinite Campus) will receive a notification from Remind. To make sure your information is correct in Infinite Campus, please visit our Family Update Website to change your contact information. You can make changes for each of your children in one place.
Why am I not seeing the text messages now being sent in the Remind app?
Teachers that were using the free version of Remind had to merge their account with our new district plan. It make take a few days for everything to sync.
How do I change how I'm getting notifications?
Parents can change the notification settings to match their personal preferences for how they want to receive information.
- You can add devices and update your notification preferences in your account settings.
- You can change, add, or remove an email or phone number in your account on this page.
Visit the Remind website for step-by-step instructions.
How do I remove myself from a Remind class?
If you receive a message from a Remind class you'd like to be removed from, you can easily opt-out. Learn how to opt-out of messages.
