  • Trouble contacting teachers/ staff? Please read

    Dear Parents,
     
    A recent technology systems upgrade resulted in the resetting of all Pelham Public Schools faculty's email passwords. Because of this, some teachers and staff who are not working over the summer may not yet have access to their school email accounts. If you are having difficulty reaching a teacher or staff member, please call your school or the District office. Please know that our technology department is actively working to resolve this issue.
