• WEEKLY DISTRICT & SCHOOL NEWSLETTERS

  • The North Allegheny School District strives to improve the efficiency of communication with and access to information for parents/guardians. Throughout the 2023-2024 school year, the District will send an email newsletter every Friday around 5:00 p.m. (except scheduled holiday breaks) to parents/guardians that highlights the top happenings, upcoming important dates, District information, and a line to a website with approved community flyers. This email will also include links to each school's specific newsletter.

    Parent/guardian email addresses are collected at the time of registration and are used to share District and building-level communications and to provide updates from the District’s online grade book and student information system. It is important for parents/guardians to update any changes in their email address by contacting their student's school secretary.

    All flyers must also follow the guidelines outlined in the District’s Approved Commercial Advertising Policy (#833).

    Flyer approval does not constitute an endorsement by North Allegheny School District. Approval simply means the material has been reviewed and meets the guidelines for electronic distribution.

    District representatives have the authority to postpone or deny distribution for any building at their discretion.

Flyers must be approved by the NASD Communications Department prior to posting. Schools and school secretaries do not have the ability to approve flyers.

    The weekly emails will be archived on the District website. At the beginning of each school week by 11:30 a.m., the archive will be updated to include the email sent the previous Friday. All emails from the 2023-2024 school year will be posted to the archive and kept there for the entirety of the school year.
