    PGCPS is Transitioning to a New Parent Communication Platform

    Keeping You Informed: PGCPS is Transitioning to a New Parent Communication Platform

    Greetings Parents,
    To keep you updated, as of yesterday, September 30, the PGCPS has transitioned to a new communication platform called  School Messenger by Intrado, which will replace our former blackboard system that was used to send you emails, texts, calls, etc. The new "Intrado" system will retain many of the features that were used to communicate with you. In the process of transitioning to the new system, we will not have the capability to send texts, emails, or calls at this time. However, we will utilize the Class Dojo system and school's website to communicate with families.
    In the meantime, please ensure that your child's information is updated in Schoolmax and that you are signed up for a Family Portal Account. 
    As soon as the new system is available, we will notify you at that time, so you can begin to expect emails, texts, call-outs, etc. from the school to keep you informed. If you have any questions, please contact the main office at 301-513-5300. Thank you for your understanding and continued partnership in education.
