LCSD1 uses new communication platform

Laramie County School District 1 is using a new platform called Remind to communicate with parents/guardians and students at the district, school and classroom level.

This two-way communication platform is also being used for athletics, activities and other extracurricular groups. Users have the option of receiving their messages through a phone app, text messages or via email.

LCSD1 switched to Remind this fall because the former platform, SchoolWay, was no longer available. Users received an email invitation from Remind to claim their account. Claiming/account setup may also be completed on the Remind website, https://www.remind.com/families.

LCSD1 created Remind accounts for all students, parents, and staff. Users’ email and cell phone numbers are automatically populated into this system using information they submitted through Infinite Campus during online registration.

The Remind platform is built for education and the information in the system is secured and private.

For users with multiple Remind accounts, please contact https://www.remind.com/families to have your accounts merged.

For more information visit https://www.remind. com/families or contact the LCSD1 Service Desk at 771-2242, ServiceDesk@Laramie1.org.
