We will continue to use the Remind text service for the 2014-2015 school year to keep parents better informed. Through a service we are able to send important notices and reminders to each parent through text messaging. The service is absolutely free. We will be sending out notices and updates on regular basis. To sign up for the service simply text @jenningss to 81010. It will then prompt you to reply with your full name. Once that is complete you will start receiving notices from the school.
