Dixon Schools will accept submission for flyers, handouts and items to be shared via social media and electronic announcements. We are not able to distribute all submissions, but will use our Community Relations Board Policy as our guide. See the full policy below. Beyond that, we will distribute items that we believe are appropriate and of interest to our parents and students.
Use the link below to send in your submission. Let us know what schools and or grade levels you would like the material distributed to as well as which methods you would like the material sent out. The following are our most used methods to share information with our families.
- Wednesday announcement packet for elementary students
- Daily email announcements for grade 6 through 12
- Sharing via social media, primarily Facebook and Twitter
- Web site posting
If you request to have flyers or handouts distributed, and we approve your request, you will be required to provide the printed documents to the school district for distribution.
