Do you have a student who still needs a Colonial device or has a device that is not working properly and needs to have it replaced?

The Technology Support team has a pick-up system where families can use the tech support ticketing system to request a device if one has not been issued to them or to swap one that is not functioning properly.
To request a device, please visit https://forms.gle/YYGGUBRnhwoHenKbA to submit a technology ticket. After you submit a ticket, someone from the CSD Tech Team will contact you to schedule a time and date for drop off or pick up of the device. At the scheduled time, come to the Colonial Operations Center located at 157 Airport Road in New Castle. Pick up times will be Monday through Thursday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Appointments are required.

Keep in Touch

We are doing our very best to keep families informed during this State of Emergency. Please continue to check these outlets for the most up to date information:

CSD Playgrounds Remain CLOSED!

Colonial is doing everything we can to keep our community and staff members safe. In order to ensure that we are following the Coronavirus prevention guidelines and directives of limiting groups of 10 or more and adhering to social distancing, all school playgrounds are closed. We will continue to follow all CDC guidelines to stay safe and healthy.

Health Checks

If you are experiencing any symptoms, such as a dry cough, shortness of breath and/or fever,  please call your healthcare provider. The CDC is advising all who feel sick not to seek help at local hospitals before seeing private doctors or going to state health care facilities first for those without insurance.
Also, please remember the importance of social distancing. Health experts are still encouraging the public to wear face masks, even homemade ones at this time.   While playgrounds have been closed, children and families are encouraged to take walks, ride bikes and get daily exercise.
