Publications and Communications

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

School Pages is a print newsletter mailed to Bloomington households five times per year to inform residents about their public schools.

The Inside Page is a weekly staff e-newsletter about district-wide news and events distributed via district email each Thursday. We want to hear from you! Staff are welcome to ask questions about the information they read or provide suggestions for future articles. Submit your comments to commrelations@isd271.org.

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.

The Community Relations team maintains the district's social media channels and provides guidelines for all district, school and program-affiliated social media accounts.

Our website is one of our greatest communication tools to reach current and prospective families. Feedback on the website can be directed to commrelations@isd271.org.

Parents, students and staff have access to the Hub, our portal for student information. Families can update their email digests preferences in the Hub. For help logging in, contact your school media director or the district Tech Center: 952-681-6456.
