E-Newsletter Submission Guidelines
Deadline for Submittal: Thursday at 12noon (unless otherwise specified due to school holidays or other constraints)
Eblast Sent Sunday Evening: Additional emails during the week will be limited to emergencies and late breaking time critical information. Plan for upcoming events and publicity announcements accordingly so we can help you get the word out.
Address for Article/Information Submission: firstname.lastname@example.org
Format for Information: Information should be sent unformatted. It should be brief . Bullet points are better than long articles. If you wish to have a specific links to web sites and email addresses, please provide them. Documents can be uploaded in our updates but they must be in pdf format.
Sports Events: We will include sporting events from HMS and Lakeside as space permits.
Editing: The editor reserves the right to make adjustments, add clarification, or shorten an article. Brevity is key – there is limited space and parents will not read an article that is too long. The length of the weekly update and the timing of an event may dictate how much info is provided as well as when it runs and for how long.
Advertisements/Non-School Related Functions: Information related to educational issues or situations that directly impact the Henderson community (such as Dekalb BOE, Ga DOE, ELPC, state/local/national PTA news, etc) can be included. If Henderson MS feeder schools or Lakeside HS send information, these may also be included. Local church and neighborhood events will not be included. Requests to include articles for fundraising not related to HMS, Lakeside or feeder school sports, clubs, or activities will not be included. Other items will be at the discretion of the PTSA co-presidents and school administration.
If you want your information advertised, you must send it in. While we may be aware of some events, we simply cannot keep up with everything. Thanks and have a great year!
