Public Relations

About Us

The Public Relations Department handles media relations, issues management, publications, information distribution, special events, and safety for the entire school district. Through proven PR strategies, we communicate to our key stakeholders using a variety of high-tech and interpersonal tools.

Communication Tools

Email News Blasts

Parents receive emails news blasts from the District that are specific to their child's building as well as for the entire District. This important communication tool allows us to provide detailed information to parents about news and events, as well as school closings and delays. To customize your email contact information, log in to your Parent PowerSchool account. 

Parent Notification System

In an effort to expand communication between the school district and parents, Peters Township utilizes the School Messenger Parent Notification System. This technology allows us to send a recorded telephone message to parents in minutes with important information about school events or emergencies. The phone numbers used for this system are derived from PowerSchool and the Emergency Card completed by parents. If there are changes to your home, work or cell phone numbers, please contact the secretary in your child's building to update the information as soon as possible.

Social Media: Facebook and Twitter

The District uses Twitter to broadcast quick news, events and other important information to our parents and community. If you already Twitter, please add "PetersTwp" to your list of "following." 

 We also share information about news and events on the District Facebook page. Be sure to "like" Peters Township School District

Cable Channels: Verizon Fios and Comcast

The School District promotes events and meetings via the Township's two cable channels: Comcast Channel 19 and Verizon Fios Channel 39. Information is broadcast 24 / 7 and provides the viewing public with an array of information including school closings, award information, meeting dates, school events calendars, job postings, class reunion notices, and other important notices. Both channels also broadcasts the regular monthly meeting of the Peters Township Board of School Directors.

If you would like to place an announcement on the cable stations, please contact Shelly Belcher, Communications Coordinator via e-mail or by calling 724-941-6251 ext. 7205.
