Weekly, on Monday evening, the Kentfield School District sends an email newsletter using the parent emails stored in the Aeries Student Information System.
The newsletter has important announcements, a calendar of events for the upcoming week, a letters from Bacich administrators. The newsletter also provides information from Safe Routes to School, KSPTA, KIK, and local organizations. In an effort to reduce the amount of emails our families receive, the newsletter is our main communication channel.

Specific Grade Levels or All Bacich Families Emails
When necessary the Bacich school office, the Kentfield district office, the PTA, or PTA Parent Education will send out e-mail blasts to parents to alert them to specific situations or events.
If You Are Not Receiving School Emails
Periodically we receive notification from parents that they are not receiving emails from the school or that they no longer are receiving email from the school. We suggest checking the following if either occurs.
- Check your email address is correct in the Aeries Parent Portal.
- Check your email system's "spam" or "junk mail" folder to verify that the school's emails are not being sent there.
- If you had been receiving email from the school and no longer are, your spam filter might have just recently decided that school mail is spam. Please check your spam folder regularly. Often times, important emails get filtered to these folders. Click this link to download more detailed instructions.
- If you are using a government or business email address and are not receiving school email, contact the person at your office who administers your email system and verify with them that the business' email filter has not been blocking school mail, or sending school email to an organization-wide spam folder before it even gets to you.
Voice Alert System
The District uses a Voice Alert System to send voice alerts to the phone numbers listed in each family's Aeries Parent Portal contact information area. In most cases, an e-mail is sent at the same time as a back up to make sure the information has been received.
Text messages are sent during emergency school closures, an emergency need for pickups, emergency situations,, and other similar types of events, as well as to notify families of messages that have been sent to email or to the Communications Feed. Every participant has the ability to opt out of text receipt for non-emergency messages. Please note that the district is unable to receive text messages except through the "Direct Message" feature in Communications.
