From newsletters to a school-wide chat group, Oakland Tech offers many (many) ways for you to stay informed and engaged.

Newsletters

The Bullhorn 

Bullhorn LogoThe PTSA Bullhorn e-newsletter is emailed to Tech families, faculty and staff on Monday mornings throughout the school year (except holidays) and is packed with school news, college information, internship and scholarship opportunities, and more. You can access translations and an archive of past issues when viewed in a browser. Subscribe to the Bullhorn.

Yahoo! Group

Yahoo-Logo2All Tech community members are encouraged to join the PTSA Yahoo! Group –– a helpful school-wide forum for asking questions, getting advice and sharing information. Tech is a big-tent community and the Yahoo! Group is one of the main places we connect and engage. Please email yahoo@oaklandtech.com if you have difficulty accessing the direct link.

Text Notifications

Oakland Tech uses a free text messaging service called Remind to help keep community members informed about important school news and updates. (If you previously joined using @othstpu, you will need to re-join based on the new class codes.)

To start receiving messages from Principal Morrison and Tech Parent University (TPU), text the sign-up code for your student’s class to the phone number 81010. There is also a separate code for staff and community members who are not associated with a particular class year.

  • Class of 2020 (Seniors) – text @ek7f3e to 81010
  • Class of 2021 (Juniors) – text @4b87eb to 81010
  • Class of 2022 (Sophomores) – text @dfa8g79 to 81010
  • Class of 2023 (Freshman) – text @e8769b6 to 81010

Please note: Personal contact information (like cell phone numbers) will not be visible on Remind.
