eConnect & Lucky Star Casino Help Local Schools
The Las Vegas-Based Digital Video Intelligence Company Helps To Bring Forty Thermal Cameras To Public Schools In The Cheyenne And Arapaho Tribes Tribal Jurisdiction. LAS VEGAS, September 22, 2020 — On Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020, eConnect one of the fastest-growing, technology businesses in the nation, partnered with Lucky Star Casino to begin donating its innovative COVID-19 thermal camera solution, eClear™, to public schools in the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes tribal jurisdiction to ensure student and faculty safety as they re-enter the school facilities.
The casino’s annual fundraising promotion successfully raised funds to donate a total of 40 thermal cameras to the El Reno, Kingfisher, Calumet, Geary, Watonga, Canton, Seiling, Woodward, Clinton, Weatherford, Arapaho, Thomas, Cordell, Elk City, Hammon and Darlington Public Schools, with the first seven cameras donated to the El Reno Public Schools. “It is an honor the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes are able to donate these thermal cameras where all children will benefit,” said Reggie Wassana, Governor of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes. “We thank El Reno Public Schools and other school districts for their continued positive partnerships.” The thermal camera is a non-contact device that detects infrared energy (heat) to take temperatures of children as they enter the school facilities. Contactless and easy to use, eClear is designed to minimize the risk of spreading disease and has allowed hundreds of customers across different verticals to reopen their establishments in a safer and capacity-controlled manner with its affordable price point, trusted software developed in the U.S., and easy implementation. Due to its effectiveness, eClear has gained wide adoption across the nation. eConnect continues to look for ways to increase accessibility through community partnerships and philanthropy. “We are honored to work with Lucky Star Casino, not only to help reopen their properties and make them clean and safe for patrons and staff, but to parter with them on this important initiative to support the communities they serve,” said eConnect President and CEO, Henry Valentino. “With the eClear system, schools are able to go beyond the standard hand washing, social distancing, and temperature recording to ensure that students and faculty are safe, and their facilities are armored with the technology to prepare for the future.” As thousands of families across the nation adjust to the new school year and the demand to reopen schools in-person, thermal detection technology, like eClear, remains beneficial post-pandemic by helping to ensure student and faculty safety, expectations, and preparedness for future outbreaks.
