    Looking for a safe way to text your students/athletes/club members or parents? Remind101.com allows you to instantly message a class of students or their parents from your computer. Teachers never see students' phone numbers and students never see theirs.

    Give your students the randomly generated number to join by text message.
    Once in your class, you can message the group and even schedule messages for later.
