TLDR? (Too Long; Didn't Read)   

   

With recommendations from several other Bellevue schools and sports teams, the ISPTSA uses the opt-in service via Remind.com to send day-before reminder texts for events. 

Simply sign up here and provide your phone number to receive texts. There's no need to download the app, unless you prefer to, and you can leave the service anytime, if you don't find it useful. 

Sample text: "PTSA General Meeting & Pasta Dinner, tomorrow night 10/10 at 6:00pm. See you there!" would be scheduled to go out on 10/9 at 10:00 AM.
