PTA and PTSA Leaders,

We do not have the words thank you enough for supporting our children, our families, our members, our educators and our communities during these difficult and constantly changing times. NH PTA is here to assist you in every way we can, as we navigate these uncharted waters together. You are amazing leaders in your schools and communities, and we APPRECIATE YOU.

During these extraordinary times, and working under both state and federal disaster, emergency, and pandemic declarations and orders, NH PTA is attempting to provide adequate and full flexibility to you as leaders of our PTA/PTSAs to allow for appropriate business to continue under these circumstances. We have put together some information we thought would be helpful while we navigate this temporary new way of life. Click the link below to read, copy or print.
