Groesbeck ISD uses Remind 101 to send out messages to students and parents. Due to recent changes within the FCC, individual carriers are now allowed to charge Carrier Fees. These fees range from $0.0025 to $0.0050 per text and are now being charged by all carriers. Verizon has opted to use the higher rate, which almost doubles the cost per individual text.
The following is from Remind:
In effect on January 28, 2019.
Due to a new fee imposed by Verizon, Remind can no longer continue providing free text notifications for devices on the Verizon Wireless network. As a result, Verizon Wireless customers who use the free Remind service will not be able to receive or send text messages as of January 28, 2019.
Remind has a couple of options and both of these options are free of charge.

September is Attendance Awareness Month and as a part of that recognition, the students of Groesbeck ISD Kindergarten through 12th grade participated in a poster contest to bring awareness to the importance of school attendance. Students submitted posters to illustrate the theme “Every Day Counts”. The top three posters from each grade level were submitted to the District Office, and a panel of outside judges chose the 1st place winner for each grade level. The winning posters will be displayed on the district’s website through the school year. So watch each month for different grade levels being displayed.
Congratulations to each of these students, and a warm thank you to everyone who participated.
See the posters below:
