Families don't need to download the TalkingPoints for Families Mobile App. When you add families to your class and send your first message, they'll receive it as a text message.
Only standard text messaging fees apply for families who are not on the TalkingPoints Families app and receiving your messages as text messages.
Downloading the app for families is optional once you start communicating with them.
