WeAreTeachers does have a few rules to ensure that everyone has a fun & safe experience, notably that “by registering their class in The USPS Pen Pal Project, teachers agree that they have received the proper permission based on their district’s guidelines from their principal or administration.

Teachers are also responsible for informing each student’s parents about the Pen Pal Project and obtaining their permission for their child to participate.
