How I Use It
As a tool for homework posting, homeroom reminders (Forms, days off, early dismissal, etc.) and weather related delays and closings.
It works perfectly. They have added improvements to send to all your classes at once. We have had so many weather delays and closings this year, It is much easier to send just one post.
I started to use Remind 101 this year because I have many students that have IEP's. Each parent requested that I sent them the homework each night. That was in addition to posting on our school homework/grading program. I found that once they signed up for the classes their children were in, I could send a Remind 101 notice and that was enough.
I has saved me hours of work. Sometimes it would take me 1/2 hour or more at the end of the day to send individual emails.
There is a limited amount of characters and I tend to be long winded, so I have had to learn how to write more to the point and with less words.
