  • A Letter from Principal Ferron on Tragic Bronx Fire

    Dear Pelham Preparatory Academy,

    News of the devastating fire yesterday in the Bronx has left our school community feeling shock, grief, and sadness. In this moment of sorrow, Pelham Prep offers its deepest condolences to all the individuals who tragically lost their lives, the countless others hurt, and numerous families displaced. At this time, we offer our sympathies to everyone impacted by this unfortunate tragedy, especially all the loved ones who are dealing with their losses. 

    Our school is available to provide information and support to all our students and families in need as we navigate this crisis. If you know someone who may be directly impacted by the tragic fire, please notify a trusted PPA staff member immediately. If any student or family member would like to talk to someone, our support team is here for you. Please feel free to contact any of the following:

    To support the families who live at 333 E 181st street during this incredibly difficult time, the Bronx Central Office (BCO) will be collecting donations. All donations will go directly to the victims of this tragic fire. Donations may include non perishable food items, toiletries, clothing, coats, blankets, monetary donations and anything you believe could provide some comfort to those in need. 

    Here is a link with a flier from the BCO with more information about donation drop offs and hours of operation. BCO Fire Victims Collections

    Below is a message to schools from Chancellor Banks:

    “The DOE is working to ensure support for families. We collaborated with the American Red Cross to set up a comfort center for families displaced by the fire at IS 391, located at 2225 Webster Avenue. The center offers food, counseling support, and case management for families who need to relocate. 

    The DOE will have counselors and social workers on hand at every school impacted by this tragedy. For any students who relocate, the DOE will assist with reassignments and new bus routes. Our schools are ready to help families during this challenging time. The FDNY has fire safety resources for families available at Please share this resource with your school community, along with this short public service announcement reminding them to Close the Door when evacuating from a fire (also available in multiple languages).”

    Sincerely Yours,

    Benvenuto Ferron, Principal
