200 Chromebook computers handed out to East Hartford students

Education

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Hundreds of new Chromebook devices were given to East Hartford’s Mayberry Elementary School students Thursday morning.

The school wanted to make sure those students would be prepared for the first day of school, whether on-site or at home.

“For us, it’s really important to not only get the devices in the hands of our families but also how to use them,” said Principal Joesph LeRoy. “Any technological support needs that may be there. And ultimately ways to communicate with their schools and or their teachers as the year gets closer so that they’re usable.”

The event was made possible by a generous $50,000 donation from Pratt & Whitney.
