Monday, March 30, from 9-3pm, we will be delivering Chromebooks to 1st graders that do not yet have a device in their household and reattempt deliveries for students in older grades. Thank you for your patience as we shifted to delivery for the health and safety of everyone!
BROKEN CHROMEBOOKS: We have learned that some of the Chromebooks that were given to families this week were broken. On Saturday, March 28 at Veterans Elementary school from 10am to 1pm, you can bring a broken device and receive a different one. You must bring the broken device with you. To ensure everyone’s health, please only have one person from your family come. We will be following the guidance of social distancing and require everyone to be 6 feet apart and have only 10 people at the location at a time. We ask that if your last name begins with A-M please come between 10am and 11:30am and if your last name begins with N-Z please come between 11:30am and 1pm. Saturday we will also be attempting redeliveries for grades 2nd-8th. Please note there are no additional Chromebooks or hotspots available. If you need wifi, please call COX about their 2 FREE months at 888-234-3993. If you have support questions, including username and password, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friday, March 27, we will be delivering Chromebooks to students in 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade that do not yet have a device in their household. Deliveries will take place between the approximate hours of 9AM and 3PM. We will also reattempt deliveries for students in older grades.
Teachers are superheroes everyday and how they have shown us new ways to support students in this transition are just further examples of #CFEducatorExcellence and how #CFSDgoestheDISTANCE THANK YOU TO ALL OUR TEACHERS AND FAMILIES FOR COLLABORATING AND KEEPING THE LEARNING GOING!
For the health and safety of everyone, we are changing the Chromebook distribution to delivery. There will NOT be pick-up at Veterans Elementary School tomorrow. We will begin this with 5 busses tomorrow morning and distribute by grade level starting with 8th grade. The goal is still to have a device in every household by Friday afternoon. Thank you, Dr. Toledo

Our #ReadingWarriors program brings HS and elementary students together to support our young readers’ emerging literacy! Thanks to everyone involved, including the teachers who have trained our HSers and the HSers who are so generous with their time! #CFExcellence
“Our Warrior Fellows program has been a great asset to our district — supporting students directly, providing pipeline opportunities for educators wanting to join the district and certainly enabling more purposeful, informed instruction when teachers are out,” said Central Falls Superintendent Dr. Stephanie Downey Toledo. We are grateful for each of our former, current and future #WarriorFellows and are committed to expanding the program! https://www.wpri.com/target-12/ri-taxpayers-students-paying-the-price-for-substitute-teacher-shortage/
