Canyon Creek PTA Reminders:

Changes for the New School Year!

As of July 1st, we are officially in a new school year for PTA! We are so excited with the success of this program and how many of our school community have found it useful in our first year offering reminders.

We wanted to share with you a couple things about Reminders including:

  • changes in how we are managing our Remind classes due to a change in cost of using Remind for larger groups
  • how to UNSUBSCRIBE if you are no longer interested in Canyon Creek PTA Reminders

Remind "Class" Changes

Our current Reminder service provider (Remind) is changing their FREE plan to have class size limits. We are bigger than they will allow FREE classes to be. To continue as we are currently setup, we would be charged $4 per subscriber per year - which would be over $1000 a year and definitely not in the budget for our non-profit!! So we are spreading our current subscribers across a few "classes" to allow us to provide this service without any cost to our PTA. This solution was suggested by a customer service representative at Remind. We may decide to change Reminder services providers if we outgrow the "multi-class" approach, but we believe this is still the best option for us right now. 

** These changes were completed on Monday, July 15th. **

If you are a current Reminder subscriber, you will receive 2 messages:

  • a Remind message informing you that you were added to another class with the new class name listed: "CC PTA Reminders (A)", "CC PTA Reminders (B)", etc.
  • followed by another Remind message that you have been removed from the "CC PTA Reminders" class.

If you get these messages, you don't need to do ANYTHING - you are still setup to get reminders. Everything should work exactly the same in the new reminder classes. The change is more on the administrative side, we will be sending the same message to multiple groups - but is relatively simple to do!!
