Remind App - Welcome to all new parents & So long to those moving on to gr.1
We see many new names joining our Remind Hilson Kinder Class. Welcome! We kindly ask that parents joining, list their name as follows on the app: Your name (Your child's name). Ex. Raquel Alves (Lennan) This will make it easier for educators to communicate with you over the course of the school year.
For those of you moving on to grade 1, we kindly ask that you begin to remove yourselves from the Remind Hilson Kinder class. You can do this by:
iOS App: Tap the class on the Classes screen. Then, tap the class name at the top of the screen. The Final step is to click the red "Leave this class" link and confirm.
Andriod App: Tap the class on the side bar then tap the three dots on the top right of your screen. Choose Class Settings. The final step is to click the red "Leave this class" link and confirm.
