    Ski Club Procedure for Friday, February 15th

     Since there is no school on Friday we have a slightly different routine for our night of fun on the slopes.  Here are a few quick reminders:

    >Drop off and pick up will be at the same spot as normal: 5W entrance (Sauder side of the biulding with the Polar Bear head)

    >Drop off between 3:00 - 3:10 pm.  Pick up at 9:00 pm.

    >Students will walk through the school to the purple gym entrance to load the ski club buses once they are dropped off at entrance 5W

    >Remember all your gear, dress warm, bring $ for any snacks or dinner and have LOTS OF FUN!!!

    We’re sorry to write with disappointing news. Recently, we learned that Verizon will be charging Remind a new fee that makes it impossible for Remind to continue supporting free text messaging for anyone who has Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier.

    What’s happening?

    Remind offers their text messaging service free of charge, Remind has always paid for each text that their users receive or send. Now, Verizon is charging Remind an additional fee intended for companies that send spam over its network. Our Remind messages aren’t spam, but the efforts of Remind to resolve the issue with Verizon haven’t been successful.

    As a result, the Verizon fee will increase the costs of providing text messaging by 11X—pushing Remind’s annual costs into the millions of dollars. This isn’t financially feasible for Remind to support, and it’s forcing Remind to no longer use text messaging for everyone who has a wireless plan with Verizon.

    Soooo...How will this affect you?

    Beginning January 28, 2019, the people in Ski Club who normally get our Remind messages as texts will no longer receive these messages if they have Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier.

    What can you do?

    To make sure people in our club continue receiving our messages, we are asking them to download the mobile app or enable email notifications—both of which are free of charge.

    Thank you
