Communications/Public Information Requests

Varnett Logo
The Varnett Public School’s Communications Department promotes positive public relations between the public at large, including parents, community members and policymakers.

As a means to connect to the public, the department maintains and quickly updates The Varnett Public School’s website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn by using the written word, photographs and video to reflect the values expressed in Varnett’s mission statement.
The updates include news and announcements as well as district and campus
calendars of events. The department quickly notifies TV and radio stations of school closures due to inclement weather or other factors and consistently updates Varnett’s media platforms for easy access to parents.

The department also strives to reward students by showcasing their good work on Varnett’s social media platforms. This practice enables students to win public acknowledgment and to use their documented work to start developing their educational portfolios at an early age.

The department also works with the media to highlight and publicize positive Varnett stories involving administrators, teachers, parents and students.
The department also produces materials used in the recruitment of staff and students and participates in interviews of Varnett job applicants. The communications and marketing director also takes on a significant role in the branding and marketing of Varnett.
Finally, the communications and marketing director seeks to quickly answer questions posted by parents and community members on social media or to connect those to the proper Varnett employee who can answer the question.
