Effective Monday, October 26th, the district is asking students and parents to utilize the link below to report a problem with a district-assigned Chromebook or to request to borrow a district Chromebook. This new system replaces the chromesupport@crsd email system. The two biggest advantages to this system are that the ticket will go directly to a technician, and the parent/student will be able to see the status of the tickets they have entered.
Please see the following additional information from the IT department:
Students and parents will use the new ticket system to submit a ticket for help. It will also allow them to see the status of the existing tickets.
To use the system, you will need to set up an account. This will require a unique email address, school name, first and last name, and phone number. Help ticket requests must also include a student ID and a brief description of the issue.
To see the status of a ticket that was submitted, you will log in with an email address and password (set during account creation).
The IT department will continue to monitor the chromesupport email address but will refer parents/students to the ticketing system. You can access the SherpaDesk ticket system at any time by going to the CR Reopening Hub.
Library Media CenterThe Library Media Center is a hub for students and teachers seeking information related to all aspects of the curriculum. Supplementing the more traditional library sources--such as books, periodicals, and audio-visual materials--are the plethora of resources provided by online databases, the Internet, links to a variety of library and information networks, and multimedia databases. Two professional Library Media Specialists provide formal instruction in locating, managing, evaluating and documenting information, as well as co-teaching with curriculum teachers to reinforce best practice in these areas. They encourage students through individualized instruction and guidance not only to become independent users of information, but also to become knowledge creators. The center also provides instructional materials, production facilities, and support for the creation of a variety of multimedia projects. Library hours are extended beyond the school day to provide maximum access. Though the library's evening hours have recently been curtailed, students are encouraged to utilize the resources--including two library media specialists--offered during and after school every day; community members are encouraged to take advantage of resources by reaching out via email. The goal of the center’s staff is to develop skill in defining and solving problems; to increase competence in finding, critically analyzing, and using information from a variety of sources; and to encourage positive and enthusiastic attitudes toward libraries and reading that will last a lifetime.Library Staff2020-2021

We'll be discussing the books you've been reading lately, books you love, books you think are overrated, books you think every teen should read, favorite genres, and more. We'll spend part of the time talking about books, but we'll also be sharing slideshows, games, and riddles! Each week we'll be discussing a different topic, which we'll send with the Google Meet link to your email. We'll start with books, and then see where the conversation takes us! Wednesdays from 4:00-5:00 through December.
Our usual Poetry Night Out is now In, but that won’t hold back an inspiring evening. Four poets gather to read from their new works: Lisa Ampleman delves into the past with her book Romances, which explores the literary tradition of courtly love. Brian Barker will read from Vanishing Acts, a collection Alex Lemon calls “masterful and strange, depicting the twilight of human cruelty in a world on the cusp of rebirth.” Rebecca Dunham will read from, Strike, which Traci Brimhall describes as a “gorgeous new book [with] secrets, shames, and a fury that bites like frost.” In Downburst, Mark Fitzerald explores how the violence in the weather can lead to resilience and courage. Tuesday, Nov. 10, 7:00-8:00.
