Are your PTA emails going into junk/spam folders?

Despite our best efforts, many PTA emails end up in your junk/spam or promotion folders. This happens because Google, Yahoo and other email providers automatically tag the emails their servers receive from companies such as Mailchimp. The PTA uses Mailchimp to manage our lists and to create and send emails to our community. 

We recommend the following steps to ensure that PTA emails reach your Primary email inboxes.

1. Please add the following email addresses to your Contacts in whatever email provider you use. 

2. Please REDIRECT our emails into your primary inbox by following the instructions below for the most frequently used providers.
