Community Organizations Help Bridge Digital Divide In Rocky Point

As Rocky Point students continue with distance learning, donors both near and far have been eager to lend a helping hand so that all students have the tools they need to succeed. 

Locally, the Rotary Club of Rocky Point and the North Shore Youth Council have lent Chromebooks to students, and OLA of Eastern Long Island donated 100 Acer Chromebooks to the Rocky Point School District to assist with online education during the COVID-19 crisis.

“We are grateful for the generosity and kindness of these organizations for helping our students have this crucial access to succeed in their school work,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Scott O’Brien said. “These partnerships help to not only advance our students’ ongoing education, it encourages and strengthens school-community connections.” 

Students without devices in their homes were able to pick up the Chromebooks last Friday as they move forward in their educational digital instruction.
