Update – Fall Survey Issues

We are working on resolving an issue that some families may have experienced who have more than one student and did not receive a second survey.  Also, we are working on an issue for those that did not respond to the survey call and are trying to participate in the survey from the email link and it is now saying that the survey has expired.

Families will have another opportunity to take part in this survey next week. Those families that have completed the survey thank you for your time, this information is extremely helpful.

We appreciate your patience.

Superintendent’s Message – Chromebook Distribution Grades K-5 – Mensaje del Superintendente – Distribución de Chromebook Grados K-5

Superintendent’s Message – Chromebook Distribution Grades K-5 – Mensaje del Superintendente – Distribución de Chromebook Grados K-5

Good afternoon.  This is Bob Mitchell the superintendent of schools.  I hope everyone is doing okay during this difficult time.  I’m sure you’ve heard that Governor Raimondo is requiring that all schools in the state will be closed until April 3rd, and there is a good possibility that they will be closed even longer than that.  During this time we will be implementing a Distance Learning Plan that will allow students to continue their learning. We need to get Chromebooks into the hands of all elementary students in order to implement the plan.  This message is for those families who do not have computers at home. We have developed a plan to get computers to those families who do not have them.

Tomorrow, Friday, March 20th, from 8:30 am until 1:00 pm, each elementary school will have a designated drive-up area where Chromebooks can be picked up.  Again this is for families that do not have access to technology at home.  

Each Chromebook will be cleaned prior to pick-up. Chromebooks will be limited to one per family. The student attending that school must be present with their parent in order to pick up a Chromebook.

Thank you for your patience during this time.  We will continue to keep you informed as new information arises.  

Stay well!


Buenas tardes. Soy Bob Mitchell, el superintendente de escuelas. Espero que todos estén bien durante este momento difícil. Estoy seguro de que han escuchado que la gobernadora Raimondo requirió que todas las escuelas del estado cierren hasta el 3 de abril, y existe una buena posibilidad de que cierren incluso por más tiempo. Durante este tiempo estaremos implementando un Plan de Aprendizaje a Distancia que permitirá a los estudiantes continuar su aprendizaje. Para poder implementar este plan, necesitamos poner Chromebooks (computadora)  en las manos de todos los estudiantes que están en la escuela elementaria. Este mensaje es para aquellas familias que no tienen computadoras en casa. Hemos desarrollado un plan para entregar computadoras a aquellas familias que no las tienen.

Mañana, viernes 20 de marzo, desde las 8:30 a.m. hasta la 1:00 p.m., cada escuela primaria tendrá una área designada donde podrán recoger una Chromebook. Nuevamente, esto es para familias que no tienen acceso a la tecnología en el hogar.

Cada Chromebook se limpiará antes de que sea recogida. Las Chromebooks están limitadas a una por familia. El estudiante que asiste a esa escuela debe estar presente con sus padres para poder recoger un Chromebook.

Gracias por su paciencia durante este tiempo. Continuaremos manteniéndolos informado a medida que surja nueva información. 

¡Manténgase bien!
