VERONA, NJ - As Verona schools prep for delivering home instruction in the wake of the coronavirus, the district is asking parents to complete a technology survey. The following request was sent out from the Superintendent.
Dear Verona Parents & Guardians,
As a school district we continue to coordinate a plan for the possibility of delivering home instruction to all of our students in the event one is necessary. Ensuring that our students have access to the necessary technology and wireless access at home is imperative to provide the appropriate tools for our students to continue to learn remotely.
I have asked our Verona Public Schools IT Department to collect information in the event that a health-related school closure is required. We have created a survey which has been posted to your Genesis Parent Portal account for you to complete if your child is in grades K-8. All responses are confidential. Verona High School students are already equipped with district Chromebooks or their own personal wireless devices. Therefore, VHS parents are not required to complete the survey. Please contact Mr. Ballaj via email at email@example.com if your VHS student now requires a wireless device.
We ask that you please complete the survey as soon as possible. The survey will be available for the next 48 hours. You may access the survey by visiting your Genesis Parent Portal.
Our IT Department will review the survey results and follow up accordingly with families who need a Chromebook device or require wireless access at home. We appreciate your cooperation and thank you for your support.
All my best,
Dr. Rui Dionisio
Superintendent of Schools
