Communication Tool

Lahainaluna Early College Utilizes the Remind App

Lahainaluna Early College uses the Remind App to communicate with students and parents via text message.

The Remind App does not reveal cell phone numbers from both the sender and receiver of these messages. When you sign up for Remind you add your first and last name and that is the only information shared on caller ID.

Parents, students and advisors can dictate times they want to start and stop receiving text messages.

A link to the Early College Remind App is located in the Early College Google Classroom. Please email Miss Kristy Arakawa for access.
