FAQ for Parents/Guardians:


What email is used for my Remind account?

Remind accounts are generated from the information in Skyward (our student information system). The email address that you have listed there is the one that will be used for your Remind account.


How will I receive communication through Remind?

Students and families can choose between email, text messages, and app notifications to receive messages sent by teachers and schools. Families may also receive phone calls from teachers and schools through Remind. Once logged into Remind from a computer or smartphone, students and families can pick the way they want to receive the communications in their settings. See this article for directions on changing your notification settings in Remind.


What type of communication will I receive through Remind?

Teachers and schools will typically use Remind for important announcements (upcoming testing, end-of-semester deadlines, school events) and for keeping in touch regarding homework and grades. It may also be used on field trips, or by coaches to organize their teams.


Is there a cost associated with using Remind?

Olympia School District pays for premium Remind accounts for all our users. However, if you elect to receive messages via text, there may be an associated cost from your service provider. If you do not wish to incur these costs, you can set your preferences on to receive email notifications only.


How is my data protected?

Remind meets iKeepSafe FERPA Certification requirements for data privacy. Please read more about Remind's Privacy Policy here.
