In order to clearly communicate with families, many of SVSD’s staff utilize Remind. This system allows coaches and teachers to provide information via text messaging to a large number of people at one time.
We were recently made aware of an issue with Remind and Verizon Wireless. Beginning January 28, 2019, Verizon Wireless customers will no longer be able to receive text messages from Remind. This is the result of a change in Verizon's policy regarding what they consider to be "spam" messages. Remind is working to remedy this, but at this point Verizon Wireless customers will not receive text messages from Remind accounts beginning January 28.
There are two options to continue receiving notifications through Remind: 1. Download their app and enable push notifications to your phone 2. Go to remind.com, create an account/sign in, and select to “turn on email notifications.” This will allow you to receive the same information via email instead of texts.
