I have three students at one school and didn't receive a call. Now this explains why emails to teacher(s) regarding Halloween and carnival planning have gone unanswered. It would have been extremely helpful to have gotten that phone call.

The district wants to have email in the 'cloud' on Google Mail. Sounds very secure folks. Would any IT director would ever agree to having corporate email run on Gmail? Does PUSD have an IT director or have they left?
Maybe all those boxes of toxic orange goo the district was serving kids as part of meatless monday - the uber healthy chips and cheeze whiz meal - was stored in the server room and the orange goo leaked. The server disk array could not survive its onslaught and all data in its path was destroyed. 'Attack of the Killer Tomatoes' becomes 'Attack of the Toxic Goo.'

Many Fortune 500 companies have moved from or are in the process of moving from traditional email servers and costly Blackberry servers to using Google mail. Web Link
BTW - I received 2 sets of calls for 2 children to 2 different phones along with an email from the newsletter editor for each school. We've come to rely on instant email communication, so I'm sure it was a tough week for PUSD. Thanks for the GREAT alternative communication PUSD, Foothill and Hart! And welcome to Google mail!
