Guidance Office Announcements

Tecumseh High School students and their parents may receive announcements from the Guidance Counselor via various methods.  Check out the details below to learn how to keep up with Guidance news.

REMIND:  What is the Remind service?
Remind is a free website that provides a safe way for schools to text message or email students and parents.  Students and parents sign up for notification by sending a text message with a class code.  They may also sign up by sending an email.  The medium they sign up with determines how they receive notifications.  So, if a student signs up from their phone, they will receive text messages.  Likewise, a parent who emails in will receive messages via email.
