Remind 101

PARENTS! Starting this year, LHMS and Polk County Schools will not be sending out frequent phone messages.

Instead, LHMS has created a Remind 101 text message service that will be used by administration to send out reminders, brief announcements, and other necessary information.

Signing up is EASY!

1. Text the message "@lhms1516" to "81010"

2. Answer the texts that follow.

3. You are all signed up to receive messages!

*This is a "one way" service similar to other groups (little league, doctors' offices, etc.).
