Remind 101 Update:

As of July 23rd, Remind101 changed their terms of use policy limiting course numbers to 150 members per free account. After a few weeks of researching the best solution to this problem, we have found that the fees and processes associated with upgrading our account were not feasible for the needs of our organization at this time. For this reason, we have decided to go forward with section specific remind classrooms for both students and parents for the remainder of the season. Below are the remind codes and instructions for our newest MPLT remind accounts. We ask that you only sign up for the remind account that corresponds with your student’s section to help us keep the member limit below 150 per class. All remind classes will receive the same information, so if you have multiple students as long as you are registered for one class you will get all pertinent notifications for MPLT members.

To Sign up for remind:

  • Go to text messages and create a new message
  • Type, 81010, into the contact information
  • Text the code corresponding to the class that you would like to sign-up for
