Pacific Grove Unified School District has adopted the “REMIND” text notification system to send quick text messages to parents.

School sites and many classroom teachers use REMIND accounts for regular school messages.  In an emergency, ONLY THE DISTRICT account will be used to inform those who have signed up.  You should sign-up for both your school’s REMIND account and the district’s REMIND account. (Instructions below.)

In an emergency, we will also notify everyone using our “School Messenger” system to send an message to every email address on file.  The text message will be sent first.  If you don’t sign up for text messages, you will still be notified, but there will be some necessary delay before the email can be written and sent.

In an emergency where we need to call every parent/guardian immediately, we will also use the “School Messenger” phone system. This permits us to call multiple numbers per student all-at-once.

Important messages that are not urgent will still be sent via email.  We will make every effort to keep you informed with the most up-to-date and accurate information available to the district in any emergency.

REMIND is an OPT-IN system.  You have to subscribe to the free service by sending a text message to the PGUSD District REMIND number.  You can cancel later at any time.
