Hotspots for Remote Learning During Inclement Weather

Affordable Internet Program

In preparation for remote learning due to Inclement Weather (snow day), please be sure that your student takes home their laptop every day. If you need a hotspot, please scroll down for more information about the Affordable Connectivity Program.

The policy from the district is that families need to apply for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and be rejected by that before we are able to start the process of issuing a hotspot.

Once you are approved for a hotspot, the school will activate a hotspot to be picked up by your student during lunch time at the Mercer technology center.

Thank you!
