Communication is Key to a Successful Relationship
At FISD we know that communication is key to a successful relationship, which is why we are always looking for ways to keep you accurately informed as efficiently and quickly as possible. In addition to the recent efforts to keep our community informed, such as the FISD Focus and FISD Update, we are implementing the Remind101 texting service to inform the FISD community regarding school closings or delays due to inclement weather.
Remind101 is a service that provides FISD a safe way to text message faculty, staff, students and parents. In fact, we know some of our teachers are already using this option to communicate with their students and parents. Using Remind101 can allow FISD to more effectively and securely get information out without needing to know phone numbers. This service is confidential and your information will not be given out or seen when text messages are sent. It is a one-way messaging service therefore you will not be able to reply to any of the text messages you receive.There is no cost to sign up for Remind101, but standard text messaging rates may apply.
Below you will find a number and a code. To subscribe, text the code to the number. At that point, you will be "subscribed" to the FISD account. Any time FISD sends a message regarding inclement weather via Remind101, anyone subscribed will receive it.
Number: (830) 261-4721 Code: @fisdw
Using effective communication is crucial to relationships and to our success as we strive to promote a positive, collaborative learning environment. Constantly seeking out ways to improve communication is one more way that FISD is working with our staff, parents and community as we prepare our students for a prosperous life.
