Per legislation, we are required to notify you that we have been alerted that the educational resource Sphero was recently compromised. Sphero is a program we use in our middle school STEM and Technology Education classes for work with coding.
The incident involved an unauthorized third party who gained access to usernames and emails for which a small number of Coventry Public Schools accounts were impacted (less than 5). We will be working with the affected users to reset passwords and monitor for suspicious activity. Sphero continues to investigate the incident and has deployed changes that they believe have addressed the issue but are running further tests to validate.
Coventry Public Schools treats the privacy of our students with the utmost priority and will continue to monitor the situation. You will be notified immediately if there are any changes to this situation.
