The PTSA provides a per-grade email list so that parents can easily stay connected with each other and with what is happening in their child’s classroom. Teachers can request to be on this list, but they typically are not; they email you separately.
There is also an all-school email list for parents and the PTSA to discuss events that affect families across multiple grades. There is a general agreement that we use this list sparingly and that using Reply All is discourteous.
This is not the email list that the office or the district uses. Parents are added to or removed from this list by filling out the PTSA Communication Permission form that was in the Welcome packet at the beginning of the year, using the unsubscribe links at the bottom of any received classroom or all-school email, or by emailing email@example.com.
