Pyle AtoZConnect (previously known as PyleNet)

Introducing our new listserve: Pyle AtoZConnect!

Pyle AtoZConnect is our new listserve which replaced PyleNet during the summer of 2018. We used PyleNet for 20 years, so it was time for an upgrade!

Pyle AtoZConnect's features:

  • It is an "opt-out" system. Parents do not have to join it. Every email address in the directory is automatically included in the email distribution.
  • All five feeder elementary schools use AtoZConnect for their directories; therefore, AtoZ uploads the 5th grade parents' info into Pyle's 6th grade every summer.
  • Parents can "unsubscribe" on their own at any point by clicking "unsubscribe" at the top of any email.
  • Emails can include photos, attachments, and links. 
  • AtoZConnect has a super App for smartphones!
  • We can now send "grade-specific" emails.
  • Parents can update their own contact info when they log into their accounts at www.atozconnect.com.
  • If you are a teacher, administrator, or PTSA/Foundation volunteer, you may post informational emails via AtoZConnect by sending them to "PyleAtoZConnect@gmail.com." Please include a descriptive subject line, detailed text (who, what, when, where, why, how) and include your name and email address at the bottom for questions.
