We are excited to offer telehealth and teletherapy at each of our schools this year. Telehealth can reduce time away from work and school for parents, students and staff by providing virtual visits with medical professionals in real-time, without leaving school.
Below is the current list of hotspot locations where students are able to connect to the internet for brief periods to access or upload assignments.
We have been able to secure a few hotspots throughout the county if your student is in need to connect for a short period to access Google Classroom or upload assignments. We realize the obstacle many of our families face with the lack of reliable internet accessibility. We are extremely appreciative of the willingness of these entities to support our students and community during this time. Please be respectful of these locations when utilizing the hotspot service.
