A website suggestion- It would be helpful to have teachers’ web pages grouped according to grades as they were on the previous website. When using a mobile device, it’s time consuming to scroll down to find teachers’ names at the end of the alphabet. It’s much easier on a computer.

Clarification re. the link from PayPams: The link TO PayPams works from the Shen site. Once logged on to the PayPams site, customers may link to the Shen menu page. However, that link is dead, and I suspect it wasn’t updated when the Shen website was updated.

A. That has nothing to do with the new website. We will contact the PayPams and ask them to fix it.
