Student Announcement Guidelines

We are fortunate to have two methods of communicating information to our student body: televised announcements and scrolling announcements. Both of these methods are effective; however, it is important to realize each method has limitations. As you submit announcements, please realize the following guidelines are in effect due to limitations of time and/or space.

  1. Announcements need to be submitted to "bgannouncements@d214.org" by 11:30 a.m. for following day scrolling announcements on all TV monitors, and by 1:30 p.m. for printed and televised announcements.
  2. All announcements are subject to being edited. (time and space limitations)
  3. The only announcements accepted prior to 7:25 a.m. for "last minute inclusion" will be announcements covering events which occurred after 3 p.m. the day prior.
  4. Announcements are not to contain numerous names. Use an individual's name only if a truly exceptional feat has been accomplished.
  5. Private enterprises are not to be advertised over the announcements (i.e. - make checks payable to "Bill's Shirt Shop")
  6. Announcements which recruit students to sign up for elective classes are limited to three days on the scrolling announcements and will not be televised.
  7. No announcements will be accepted after 7:25 a.m. Please do not ask.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. The process of televising daily announcements follows a very tight time line. Your understanding is appreciated.
