We are pleased to announce that we are now set-up for the REMIND TEXT System. Any parent, SEPAC Member, etc. can sign-up to receive a REMIND TEXT for our meetings and information by:

TEXT ADDRESS:  81010

Then texting the “words:”  @kkg3399

It will also ask if you want the REMIND APP as well, but that is NOT necessary to receive text messages to your cell phone. The purpose of the REMIND APP is merely to keep all your REMIND Texts from the District in the same place on your cell phone.
