 Back to School Technology Updates
 The Technology Department has been working through the summer to make sure our students and staff have a great start to the school year. Please read the following updates carefully as they include changes as to how parents will be informed of homeroom teachers at Pelham Elementary School and important Chromebook paperwork and insurance information for all parents of 7th through 12th grade students.

Chromebooks for grades 7-12

We received the new seventh grade chromebooks just last week and we are quickly preparing them for distribution! Students in grade seven can receive their chromebooks on Tuesday, August 22nd at a Parent Information night. The information night will occur at 6 PM in the high school auditorium. Please do not worry if you are on vacation or cannot attend as the 7th grade students can also receive their chromebooks on the first day of school if a parent cannot attend the information night. 

Students in grades 8-12 will receive their chromebooks during the first week of school.  

Chromebook Accidental Insurance: Grades 7-12

Insurance is available to all parents of 7-12 grade students and is highly encouraged. Insurance costs $12.00 per chromebook and covers any accidental damage for one year. The school district maintains the policy on behalf of the family and files all claims. To purchase insurance please go to:  Insurance can be purchased anytime from now until September 30th but only through the online portal. If you have more than one student, it is possible to purchase insurance by adding one at a time to your shopping cart on the Worth Ave Group page. Insurance must be repurchased each year.

Infosnap Online Registration

All parents will receive an email on Friday, August 18th with a registration link and a snapcode to access the online registration system. Infosnap replaces all paper forms that used to be sent home with your child. If you completed online registration last year you can login to your previous account. If you did not, you will have the ability to create an account once you visit the link. Please complete the online registration as soon as possible to insure that the schools have updated information. If you recently registered your student in the Pelham School District you may have already received this email but we ask that you login again to complete new agreements for technology. Parents will also receive instructions for setting up their parent portal accounts for new students once their registration is submitted.

Grades Pre-K-5 Only-Homeroom Teacher Notification

In order to discover your child’s homeroom teacher, you must complete the registration process. In the past this was published in the parent portal. This year we will be publishing this information through the online registration process. Once you hit submit, the last page will reveal your child’s homeroom teacher.

Grade 7 Only

Parents must complete the online registration by August 21st in order to pick up your child’s chromebook on August 22nd at 6 PM. This is because we have moved all of the paperwork for chromebook distribution to the online registration tool.

Grades 8-12

Please complete online registration prior to the start of school so your student can receive their chromebook.

School Messenger Communication System:

As a reminder, the District utilizes SchoolMessenger Solutions as our notification provider. SchoolMessenger offers a variety of communication options to utilize when sending messages regarding attendance calls for unreported absences, emergencies, school closings and delays, newsletters, school announcements, athletic updates, and other types of information. Parents/Legal Guardians are automatically enrolled based on the information provided for both the Mother/Legal Guardian and Father/Legal Guardian.  The Home Phone is required for Emergency and Attendance Calls.  Cell Phone and email will also be utilized and can be updated through online registration.

Looking forward to seeing students and staff back very soon!
