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.

Guidelines for Lunch Visitors

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 entered into the Raptor Visitor Management System. Visitors will be issued a temporary ID badge that is to be worn while at the school.

Once successfully checked in, visitors will wait in the main office. Your student will meet you in the main office. We ask that you sit in the designated "visitor seating" area with your student. After lunch, please come directly to the office and turn in your visitor's badge.

There are a limited number of dates throughout the school year when lunch visitors are not allowed. Please plan your lunch visits on days other than those listed below:

August 10 - August 25:  The first two weeks of school
December 11-15:  Semester exams and early release day
Testing Dates:  To Be Determined
May 14-24:  Semester exams and last days of school


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:

- open lunch sessions
- scheduled class parties
- 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)
