speaking from the parent lens...
My own children's teachers use Remind and I really like it. All three of my
kids are in elementary level of school, but Remind is a great tool. Again,
from the parent lens, it is great.

As a teacher,

I've used Remind with students a few years ago, and again, I feel that it
worked really well.

However, I have moved toward slack. I like that much better.
