Send organization-wide messages

For administrators with a Remind plan.

If you're an administrator with a Remind Plan, you can send school-wide and districtwide messages to your entire community in addition to the basic types of messages via web or app.*

You can send announcements, and initiate individual or group conversations with members of your school or district. You’re also able to send targeted messages by role to teachers, parents, students and administrators.

Participants can text “@leave @[school code or district code]” to any text messages received from the school they want to leave. If they're using the Remind app, they can go to their account settings and click “Leave” next to the school or district name.

Participants who wish to leave their schools should not text "Stop" as this will block all texts from all classes.
