Visitors & Volunteers

We welcome and encourage parental involvement in our schools and offer many opportunities throughout the year for parents to engage with their student(s) in school-based events and activities. When you visit our schools please be aware of the visitor and volunteer guidelines that help us maintain a safe environment for our students and staff.

All Pelham City Schools use the Raptor Visitor Management System which enables us to facilitate the effective and efficient management of visitors in our buildings and determine a visitor's registry status with the National Sex Offender Database.

Upon arrival at the school, all visitors must report to the main office.

Office personnel will facilitate the process for visitor registration. Visitors will be required to provide a valid government-issued ID/correspondence that will be scanned or manually entered into the Raptor Visitor Management System.

Each visitor will be issued a badge with a photo, indicating the time and purpose of the visit. The badge is to be worn while at the school and returned to the office upon departure.


Keeping our students, faculty, and staff safe is a top priority. Pelham City Schools currently requires the successful completion of a criminal background check for those serving as a volunteer, chaperone, or other sponsor for K-12 activities. Please visit the Visitors & Volunteers section on the district site for details.

A background check is NOT REQUIRED for participation at -

  • athletic events or other extra-curricular events
  • scheduled school-wide events or performances
  • scheduled meetings and/or parent-teacher conferences
  • meetings of parent-teacher organization(s)
  • other exempted activities identified by the superintendent (or designee)
