Konstella is the new Parent Communications Platform. Gunn PTSA will be using Konstella for our electronic Parent Directory, Grade level parent network, community messaging, event information and volunteer sign-ups. When registering your student this year on Infinite Campus, you indicated your communications preference to be included in emails from the PTSA or in the school Directory. PAUSD will only give us your information if you answered “YES”, and you will be included in Konstella, and start receiving messages from PTSA. Subsequently you can also register on Konstella with the email id that you provided on Infinite Campus. We expect Konstella will be up and running by August 8.
