Below are the instructions on how to sign up for Remind. You can receive push notifications directly from the app, text messages (some carriers), or email updates. You can also see the actual updates here on the site.
All Greater Gatineau families can benefit from the school reminders and daycare families, including those who only attend occasionally or on PD days will benefit from the daycare reminders.
To sign up for the remind app and get push notifications on your phone
1. On your cell phone go to the app store. Look for the “Remind” app
2. Download the app. Click on the “Join a Class” button
3. For school reminders from Mrs. Link there are classes created based on your child’s grade level.

4. For daycare reminders from Jennifer Plaxton the class is called ggdaycare2 for students starting after 2022 and ggdaycare for previous students. This is for daycare specific reminders only, you will also need to sign up for a school class code as well.
You only need to sign up for one school class as the messages will be sent out to all classes. The class code will follow your child as they move up at our school. Please sign up for your youngest child’s class so you will continue to receive the messages for the duration of their time here at Greater Gatineau.
To get reminders by email
Go to www.remind.com/join you will be prompted to find your class. The class codes are the same as above for school and for daycare.
You will then be prompted to enter your name and email address or phone number. We suggest email because there are some phone carriers who do not support text messages from remind. If you have signed up for remind in the past you can go to your account settings to modify how you receive your messages. Push notifications will come up in the app and the email option will send an email to the address of your choice.
