The Communications Department, located in the Media Center at Holyoke High School, manages all internal and external communications of the Holyoke Public School District.  We set and guide the strategy for all communications, website, and public relations messages to consistently articulate Holyoke Public Schools’ mission and core values to families, staff, partners and stakeholders.  We distribute content to inform and promote district events, activities, programs, district vision and values, while providing a special focus on celebrating our educators and students.

We are responsible for publishing to the following district communications platforms: the district website, Channel 12 TV, Receiver/ Superintendent Zrike Holyoke Updates, press releases, bulletin board messaging, event streaming, social media (Facebook and Twitter) and Connections Newsletter.
