Help & Resources: Text message alerts & updates
Remind

In addition to the phone message at 514-626-6240 the night prior to your ski day and the “Notices” page on our website we will use remind to provide text updates on the day of each outing.  We will provide updates if there are any bus delays in the morning or in the afternoon.

Note: Rogers customers & affiliates (Fido, Chatr, etc.) must download the Remind app and enable notifications in order to receive Remind messages.

1/25/2019: Important Remind update

We’re thrilled to share the news: Thanks to you, Bell Canada has informed us that they will #ReverseTheFee. As a result, we can continue to offer Remind text notifications for everyone who has a phone plan with Bell Canada or its subsidiaries.

There will be no service disruption for anyone on the Bell network, and we’re grateful for Bell’s commitment to supporting accessible communication for all educators, students, and parents in Canada.

Unfortunately, text notifications will still be ending on Monday, January 28 for anyone with Rogers Canada or its subsidiaries. To continue receiving Remind messages, they’ll need to download the mobile app or enable email notifications, both of which are free to use.

But in the last few weeks, we’ve seen the difference that educators can make. To ensure that every teacher, student, and parent in Canada can continue using Remind—no matter their phone carrier—please keep making your voice heard by asking Rogers to #ReverseTheFee at 1-855-381-7834 and on social media.

Sincerely, The Remind team

What’s happening?
To offer Remind text messaging service free of charge, Remind has always paid for each text that users receive or send. Now, Rogers are charging Remind additional fees intended for companies that send spam over their networks. Remind messages aren’t spam, but our efforts to resolve the issue with the telecoms haven’t been successful.
As a result, the Rogers fees increase Remind costs of supporting SMS in Canada to at least 25X our current cost. This isn’t financially feasible for Remind to support, and it’s forcing Remind to end Remind text messaging for everyone who has a wireless plan on the Rogers network.

How will this affect you?
Beginning January 28, 2019, people who normally get Remind texts will no longer receive messages if they have wireless plans with Rogers or their respective subsidiaries (Fido, Chatr, Cityfone).

What can you do?
To make sure you continue receiving your messages download the mobile app or enable email notifications.

Technical support
If you are unsure or need help configuring your account contact Remind at rmd.me/help from the email address you used for your Remind account so they can work with you directly.

How do I change my message notifications?  If you would like to change how you receive notifications for messages and announcements for classes you have joined, you can do this in app or web. You must have one notification turned on at all times. 

App:

Android: Click the 3 dots in the upper right, then Account, and then tap the gear icon from the top right.  On this screen, you can choose how you receive message alerts. 

iOS: On the Classes list tap the person icon in the upper left, then the gear icon from the upper left.

Web: Click your name in the upper left and click "Account" then "Communication."
On this page you can download the Remind app if you haven't yet and link your cell number.

You can also change, add, or remove an email or phone number in your account on this page. Once updated, you should receive an email confirming this change or addition.
If you are receiving additional notifications that you would rather not on the Remind app, we suggest turning off push notification. 

Our team’s also working hard on a solution that allows you to continue to use Remind by text, and we’ll share more details with you before January 28.

In the meantime, we’ll keep fighting to make sure Canadian educators, students, and parents have access to effective communication. To do this, we need your help: If using Remind has made a positive impact please ask Rogers and Bell to reverse the fee here: www.remind.com/canada-carrier-fees

We’re very grateful for your support, and we’ll be in touch soon with an update.

Sincerely,
The Remind team
