We are starting a new information program called REMIND, you will be receiving a text message from Glennie that will ask you to join, we will use this as our way of passing information on to you when we need to get something out quickly. How it works is that the school will send a text message with the announcement to you. You will NOT be able to respond to the message and it will come from a different number each time. It is a secure site and your cell phone number will be protected. If you choose not to join, YOU WILL NOT GET THE MESSAGES AND WILL NOT BE INFORMED OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL. We will not be calling people with the information should you choose not to join. When you get the message or messages, please respond with your name and a yes! For more information call Glennie in the office.
PAY TO PLAY: Just a reminder we have implemented our pay to play program this year in both the high school and the elementary. If your student is playing sports they will need to get this paid right away. Please make your checks payable to Crane Union High School or Crane Elementary School. I have listed the fee amounts:
