DAILY BULLETIN FOR MONDAY, JANUARY 21, 2019

SPECIAL NOTICE

BULLETIN REFRESHER

The deadline for Bulletin submissions is 1:00 pm the day BEFORE the posting is to run. On minimum or special schedule days, the deadline is two hours before dismissal, but still the day BEFORE. We do our best to accommodate multiple day runs, but it is entirely dependent on the volume and urgency of all the postings received for that day. All submissions are subject to editing for content and length. There is no word limit, but be sure to include all the pertinent facts (time, place, who is sponsoring, if it is grade specific (ex: only freshmen should attend), and if it is a fund raiser, who it is for, etc.). Be sure to include a contact person with a phone number or email address in case there are questions.

 

General and club announcement forms are available in the Main Office. If you prefer to email your announcement, please send it to Martha Middleton at middletonm@pvpusd.net. Emailed submissions are subject to the same deadlines and editing.
