Communication Platforms

The Blast

South Colonie delivers district and campus highlights directly to your inbox through our weekly eblast. This electronic newsletter provides subscribers with timely updates and important information about our school community.

Please note that we no longer distribute hard copies of flyers to students via backpacks. Organizations interested in sharing messages with our school community can now do so electronically through the Blast. The Blast is sent out every Friday, except during weeks when school is not in session. Summer editions are sent based on content availability.

Submission Deadline
Any organization wishing to send out information electronically should email it to by Wednesday of the week they would like it to run. The information must be packaged and ready for use.

Single-Week Requests/Frequency Limit

We are unable to accommodate multiple-week requests. If you wish to have your announcement run for numerous weeks, you must resubmit the information by Wednesday of each week you would like the information to run. Please note communications will be limited to no more than two times within a 30-day period.

Athletic Requests

Athletic-related requests are handled by the Athletic Department and should be sent directly to the Athletic Director, Bill Roemer, at
