Newport Independent Schools will be implementing Remind to enhance communication within our district. Remind will allow you to receive messages via the Remind app, the web, or via text message. It will not replace SchoolMessenger at this time, but will be used in conjunction with it, primarily to allow better communication between teachers and parents on a class level. Soon we will begin sending information to parents of our pilot school (Newport Intermediate) regarding Remind accounts and how to connect. Newport High School and Newport Primary School will follow.
IMPORTANT: Remind pulls information from Infinite Campus (IC). In order to be able to use and receive messages via Remind, you must have the following in place:
- Be marked as a guardian of an active student in IC.
- Have an active email address on file in IC.
- Have an active parent portal account in IC.
Please contact your student’s school counselor to verify or update any missing or incorrect information. Even if you do not wish to use Remind, these three items are vital in order for you to be an active part of your student’s academic journey through Newport Independent Schools.
