All performers and technicians will be required to sign up on the Remind website so you can have up-to-the-minute info on dates, times, rehearsals, tix, etc. It’s imperative you have a current email address [hey, our school gave you a gmail address, remember?!] so use that or your cell phone number. Info on how Remind works is here.

Signing up on Remind keeps your personal contact information private. No teacher or other student will have access to your email address or cell phone number. Students and parents opt to receive Remind messages by sending a text, sending an email, or downloading the app, and subscribing to a teacher’s class using her unique class code. Once subscribed, they can be identified by their full name (which they provide) in the teacher’s subscriber list.

Here’s our class code info.  Please sign on Remind or you won’t be allowed to participate in the NSHS All-School Talent Show.
