Remind 101 for Biology Students

To increase parent access to information this year, I am also offering Remind101 as a communication option. Remind101 is a free education texting site for teachers to communicate with parents. If you are interested in getting text message reminders about important documents and assignment deadlines, you can sign up by sending a text message to the number (571) 252-3493 with the text @murchi  in the body of the message. After signing up, you will start to receive text messages related to the class. This program is for the teacher to communicate information, so you cannot reply to any messages after the initial sign up. The program is just for outgoing communication from the teacher. Please consider the costs of your text message plan when deciding whether to sign up. Students should not sign up without their parents’ permission.
