Dear Eldred Community, On November 28, 2023, we were notified by Sphero, a STEAM company, of a cybersecurity incident involving a former teacher's data from six years ago. This incident did not compromise any of our student or faculty data. The incident occurred around September 2023 and has been reported to the appropriate authorities. While there is currently no evidence of misuse, we believe transparency is crucial. Our commitment to safeguarding educational data remains unwavering. Our staff is trained in data security, and our systems have multiple layers of control. We've received assurances from Sphero that necessary measures are being taken to address the incident and enhance their security. We appreciate your understanding and continue to be focused on providing a safe and secure educational environment. Sincerely, Traci Ferriera, Superintendent
