Remind App Announcement

Please see the information from It looks as though Verizon customers will no longer be able to receive remind text messages from the education-based company. Mr. Hassell will continue to utilize the remind app however, Scituate also has the capability to send text messages to families through Powerschool. Please make sure your mobile phone number is up-to-date and accurate in Powerschool.

Our weekly Newsletter is sent via PowerSchool email, Remind, Powerschool text, Facebook, Twitter, and is placed on our website each week!

A Message From Remind: We’re sorry to write with disappointing news. Recently, we learned that Verizon will be charging Remind a new fee that makes it impossible for us to continue supporting free text messaging for anyone who has Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier. Please read on for all the important details—we promise to keep this as short as we can.

What’s happening?
To offer our text messaging service free of charge, Remind has always paid for each text that our users receive or send. Now, Verizon is charging Remind an additional fee intended for companies that send spam over its network. Your Remind messages aren’t spam, but our efforts to resolve the issue with Verizon haven’t been successful.

As a result, the Verizon fee will increase our costs of providing text messaging by 11X—pushing our annual costs into the millions of dollars. This isn’t financially feasible for us to support, and it’s forcing us to end Remind text messaging for everyone who has a wireless plan with Verizon.

How will this affect you?
Beginning January 28, 2019, the people in your classes who normally get your Remind messages as texts will no longer receive these messages if they have Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier.
