DeLaSalle Student Activities is piloting Remind, a messaging app that will help bridge gaps in communication among teams, coaches and moderators, student-athletes, and parents. The app can be used by both parents and guardians as well as students. Remind is grouped in “classes” and you can sign up to receive communications for any team on which your child participates. Some programs have individual teams listed (ex: Varsity, JV, or C), others have individual teams plus a program-wide “class” in order to communicate with all teams at once. Click here for instructions on how to download the app and sign up.
