Remind groups for ALL parents and students!

To receive urgent alerts and important reminders from Band Directors, we need all parents and students to join the correct group for your grade level.

Students and parents can join by texting the class code to the phone number 81010 (for US residents only). 81010 is the same for everyone, but the class code (like @lhband2020) is unique to each class. Students and parents don’t need smartphones, just any phone that can receive text messages. If you used Remind last year make sure you update your version through the App Store.

Class codes:

9th grade: @lhband2023

10th grade: @lhband2022

11th grade: @lhband2021

12th grade: @lhband2020
