We are excited to share that Jennings Local School District will begin using Remind as our only text messaging system beginning June 4, 2021. After this date, we will no longer be using Ohio Alerts, our current system. If you're not already familiar with Remind, it's a classroom communication tool that makes it easy for parents to stay involved with your child's learning and receive school-wide notices. Remind is free to use, and you'll be able to get and send messages on any device. Messages can be received via text, email, or the Remind app.
As part of this rollout, you can join by texting @jlsd-fj to 81010. If you wish to continue receiving text notifications, you must enroll in Remind. JENNINGS LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT WILL NOT BE IMPORTING NUMBERS FROM THE OLD SYSTEM TO THE NEW SYSTEM. You may also choose to receive notifications through the Remind app. On your iPhone or Android phone, open your web browser and go to the following link: rmd.at/jlsd-fj . Follow the instructions to sign up for Remind. You’ll be prompted to download the Remind mobile app.
When you enroll you will need to select a role - Teacher, Student, Parent. Please select the role that best reflects your role when signing up. If none of these fit you, please select Parent. This class that you are joining will be used for Jennings Local School District messages just like you have received from the old text message system.
Our teachers also use Remind to communicate with their students. Parents who are interested in being part of classroom Remind groups should contact that teacher.
Here is a video demo to see how Remind works.
We're excited to make connecting with our families more engaging!
