ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION METHODS
 
The District recognizes the use of electronic communication is a valuable educational tool. The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the means in which the school communicates with students and families

Every student is provided with an email account to communicate within the district.  Students are able to check email at school and home.  The link can be found on the front page of the district website. Usernames are in the format of LastNameFirstName@pbsd.k12.pa.us and the password has been created by the student. The District maintains the right to examine and inspect any email communication. We encourage you to talk with your child about how to access district email accounts.
