Guide to Communications


Arroyo School has established a number of channels and resources to facilitate communication around school related updates, initiatives, programs, and activities. Follow us on Facebook !



Our website is a one-stop resource for up-to-date school-related information, including staff and teaching contact details, school happenings and events, and PTA-sponsored initiatives.

The Arroyo School newsletter, The Eagle Eye, is published every Sunday except during multi-week school breaks. It is compiled by a parent volunteer and highlights school announcements and news, as well as news and events from the PTA, San Carlos School District, San Carlos Educational Foundation, and the wider community. As a parent or guardian of an Arroyo School student, you will automatically receive this weekly newsletter every Sunday at 8 a.m. at the email address you provided to the district.

Newsletter submissions are accepted by 10 a.m. Friday and can be submitted using this form. Note that this form is only for news initiated by the schools or PTA. Outside organizations should contact the San Carlos School District office to be included in the newsletter. Questions? email [email protected].

If you missed an Eagle Eye or would like to refer back to past information, you can find an archive of the newsletters here and a running document of all messages from the principal here.



Our school-wide directory is created by the Arroyo School PTA to make it easy for staff and families to contact one another. As part of the Arroyo School parent community, you will automatically receive an invitation to create an account with DirectoryBurst at the email address you provided via InfoSnap. You can download the DirectoryBurst app from the Apple or GooglePlay app stores.

The Infosnap link will be available at the beginning of the school year. A hard copy directory will be available in October.



A digital bulletin board is located in the school office and features school-related content including videos, photos, and updates. 



Classroom parents represent each class and play an important role in supporting individual classes and their respective teachers, helping to facilitate class-related events and activities. Classroom parents help with managing parent contributions, purchasing teacher gifts, collating and sharing PTA and SCEF updates, and assisting teachers with class events, parties, and special projects.



In the event of a significant emergency, parents will receive a phone call and email from our emergency broadcast system. Parents also may opt-in to receive a text message during the annual Infosnap registration process. Please do not try to call the school office during an emergency.
