Please Complete Survey - Connectivity and Computer Access

The URL for the survey is: https://survey.k12insight.com/r/2Stfmc


Chatham County Schools continues to proactively plan for all potential responses to COVID-19, commonly referred to as the new Coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention along with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction have both encouraged school districts across the country to plan for many scenarios like the closing of one or more schools.

This survey will provide us with additional information necessary to continue developing our preparedness plan for any and all contingencies whether they end up becoming necessary or not. We appreciate your honest and complete response to the questions posed by this survey!

IMPORTANT: If your family has more than one student, you must complete this survey for each individual student so that we have complete and accurate information for your household.



If your family needs a paper copy, please visit our main office on Monday to complete.

Sign up to be a Thrift Store Volunteer!

Our volunteers at the Thrift Shop last year helped us to add over $20,600 to our budget for this year. This money pays for field trips, classroom and teacher support, schoolwide projects and clubs and a lot of fun events for the students and community.


We are really struggling to get volunteers to come out for workgroups this year. If the 6-8pm window isn’t working for your schedule, feel free to drop in AT ANY TIME and help in the store! Ask for the manager on duty and let them know you have some time and want to volunteer for Pittsboro Elementary School.


We have our workgroups scheduled through the end of 2019. Check out the schedule, grab a fellow mom or dad, and come out for just ONE workgroup! The hours add up and mean so much for the school!
