The Athens Drive Band Program uses Remind 81010 as a quick one-way text communication with band students, parents, and chaperones.  Messages are private and are sent to the specified user group through SMS messaging. This program is especially useful for quickly communicating updates or schedule changes during band camp and band trips.


To JOIN Athens Band Remind 81010 Text Messaging System

Invitations to join are usually generated by the Athens Drive Band Remind moderator.  Once invited, simply respond with “YES” to accept the invitation to join the class (section or group).  After accepting the invitation, please respond again with your first and last name to complete the signup process.
