Changes to Remind

What's happening

Starting on Monday, January 28, text notifications will be ending for Verizon Wireless customers who use the free Remind service.

If you communicate with your class on Remind: People who normally get your Remind messages as texts may no longer receive them.

If you have Verizon Wireless as your phone carrier: You’ll no longer receive Remind text notifications. To get messages, you’ll need to download the Remind App or turn on email notifications within the Remind App.

Why the Verizon fee affects free text messaging on Remind

To offer our text messaging service free of charge, Remind has always paid for each text that users receive or send. Now, Verizon is charging Remind an additional fee intended for companies that send spam over its network.

  2. Open the app and create an account (or log in if you already have one).

Final Forms

Great news! The Eastern Local School District is moving to an online platform (Final Forms) for parents to complete your student’s forms/paperwork. If your child is a Junior High/High School athlete, you have already used this program and will only need to complete any additional forms.


This program will immensely cut down on the amount of papers that parents/guardians have had to complete in the past and will prevent parents with students in multiple buildings in the district from filling out repetitive forms. It is imperative that your child’s school has a current working email address. If you have previously provided the district with a working email address, you should have received an email with a link including directions and action steps to complete this process. If you did not receive the email or you did not fill out the information below at open house when visiting your child’s homeroom teacher, please  return the information below to the office as soon as possible so you can gain access to complete the required paperwork online.


If you do not have internet access, please contact your child’s school office for support.
