The Office of Communications
Saint Paul Public Schools communicates with a wide array of community members who make up the District: students, families, staff, business partners, residents and other stakeholders. The Office of Communications keeps information flowing to the people that make up, surround and support SPPS.
How We Communicate
District and Family Communications
We use Blackboard Connect to communicate important information with families and staff through automated phone calls, email and text messages. Please check with your school to make sure your contact information is up-to-date.
Emergency Notifications (inclement weather, school closings, etc.)
SPPS will inform families via:
- Automated phone calls
- Social media (Facebook and Twitter)
- School Websites
- District website
Our team produces several electronic newsletters. Families and community members can subscribe to Happening Now, a bi-monthly newsletter that highlights what is happening across SPPS.
Any local nonprofit agencies or organizations requesting to distribute flyers and/or other materials to Saint Paul Public Schools students and families must have prior authorization from the Office of Family Engagement & Community Partnerships. For more information and to submit a flyer for distribution, please visit https://www.spps.org/Page/3061. If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
