Send us your good news! 

The Office of Communications is responsible for disseminating school and district information to parents, guardians, students, staff and the Syracuse community in a timely and accurate manner. We utilize many different media platforms, including social media, to effectively communicate all information. We will continually promote the positive contributions our students make to the community whether through volunteer work, athletics, fine arts or educational achievements. Every day, our students are making a positive impact in this community and we strive to showcase these actions and achievements. One of the primary ways for you to obtain information and follow the happenings in the Syracuse City School District is through visiting our website. If you have questions or concerns, or if you would like to share some positive information, please feel free to contact us.
