Publications and Communications

The Community Relations team uses several communications tools to keep parents, staff and the community informed.

Chalk Talk is an e-newsletter for Bloomington Public Schools families and community members. Chalk Talk is sent via email the second Thursday of each month with updates from the superintendent, news, photos and videos of the great things happening in BPS.

BPS parents are automatically subscribed.

We use a mass notification system to send outreach and emergency messages to our families and staff. Families must keep their contact information and preferences updated in Infinite Campus to receive school and district communications.

Staff members can update their contact information and preferences in Skyward.

Peachjar is an electronic flyer management system we use to distribute e-flyers every Wednesday, allowing our schools to eliminate paper flyers distributed via take-home folders. Digital flyers are emailed directly to parents each week and posted to each school's Peachjar page.
