Starting in the 2020-21 school year, Remind is the notification platform used by Leander ISD (replacing SchoolMessenger) to connect with families and staff through text, email and phone broadcasts. It enables district & campus administrators to connect directly with families without making personal contact information visible.
Leander ISD uses the contact information loaded into Home Access Center to populate profiles in Remind automatically. The first time you receive a message through the Remind system, you will receive an automated message from Remind with instructions on how to claim your account and log into Remind.
If you can’t find the automated Remind message on your device, you can go to the Remind Sign Up page and type in the email address stored in Home Access Center.
Download the Remind app from the Android Google Play and Apple iOS app stores to view all communications coming from the district, your student’s campus and your student’s teachers. Remind is also accessible through a web browser at https://www.remind.com/log_in.
Setting Contact Preferences
By default, your profile is configured to receive notifications through all contact points on file with the district – phone number & email address. To turn off notifications for a specific device, follow this set of instructions:
- Log into your Remind account
- Click your name in the upper left corner and then click on “Account Settings”
- Select the “Notification Preferences” tab
- Select your preferred way to receive notifications.
To stop receiving messages from a specific Remind class, text @LEAVE @insert class code. Inside of the app or on a web browser, you can select the class, click the gear icon and choose “Leave this class” from the Class Settings menu.
