Drive-Up WIFI for Mercedes Students Needing Internet

Mercedes Independent School District students can now complete their online homework assignments at three different campuses by accessing the wireless Internet through the smart bus. 

 

On weekdays from 9 – 11 a.m. and 1 – 3 p.m., students and parents can drive to a designated campus and park their vehicle within 200 feet of the smart bus to connect to the Wi-Fi. This service is available at the following campuses: Harrell Middle School (main parking lot), Mercedes Early College Academy (10thStreet parking lot) and Mercedes High School (Norris gym parking lot). The Wi-Fi password is “smartbus.”

According to MISD Superintendent Carolyn Mendiola, M.Ed., the drive-up Wi-Fi is a free service to help the students of Mercedes continue their instruction during the school closure due to coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

 

“We know some students do not have access to reliable Internet at home, so we decided to problem-solve and utilize our smart buses to assist our students, their families and the community,” Mendiola said. 

Drive-up Wi-Fi users will need to remain in their vehicles. The school restrooms will also not be open.
