Contact Information

If you need to contact the technology department you may email techdept@phpatriots.org.

I am currently working on ways to better communicate with and inform parents & the general public. In order to better serve our Patrick Henry Community, I am making an effort to better monitor my phone. You may call me at 419-274-1876 (tech office). Due to the high volume of contact the tech department has with students, staff, and the public, and our approx staff size of 2.5 people, it may take a few days to respond to a voicemail message.
