On the Procurve2626  the ports are named 1,2,3 ... 25,26
show vlans   will show vlan-ID to vlan-name mapping
show vlan 8  fx will show tagging/untagging of ports in vlan 8

You do not mention where the uplink-port is, it could be tagged or untagged in the Vlan for staff.
Important is that the uplink-port-tagging for the "Vlan for staff" end up matching the tagging in the other end of the link.

I can see the two vlans i want to remove one and keep the other without any problems
when i try to remove the unwanted vlan i get a error stating that I cant remove vlan if its tagged or untagged.
what should it be before i remove it and what should the settings of the vlan that im keeping be?

You should start with the wanted ports, then the unwanted could go away.

some rules:
A port can not be left without at least one vlan-setting (orfan)
A port can be tagged or untagged or none in a particular vlan, but not both tagged and untagged
A port can be tagged in multiple vlans, only untagged in one.

So if you have a working uplink to other switch on port 25 , let that be unchanged.
In vlan2 modify  2-24 as untagged.
now you can remove vlan 20 (now it is only tagged on port 25)
You communicate to the switch on 10.0.0.96,
 I F  that is in vlan 2 you could also get gid of vlan1 , but in order to do so, port 26 should first be set in vlan 2 .
