Remind Alert System
We would like to welcome you and your child to Wayne Highlands School District!
We are using Remind to help you stay informed about school closings and delays, school and classroom activities, and school announcements.
Remind is a free service that lets us send quick messages via text messages, push notifications, or email to everyone involved with the school district. We’ll be able to stay in touch without anyone revealing your or our personal contact information. Signing up for our messages on Remind is easy.
