Remind Messages

Massac County Unit School District #1 is implementing Remind district-wide.  If you're not already familiar with Remind, it's a classroom communication app that makes it easy to stay involved with your child's learning. Remind is free to use, and you'll be able to get and receive messages on any device.

As part of this rollout, official accounts will be created for each school. All you need to do is follow the steps below to finish setting up your account. 

We're excited for a better way to stay connected with you!
