Wi-Fi has become an educational necessity while schools continue online learning amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Stephanie Salinas is a mother of two who explains she admires the way her children in kindergarten and first grade are growing up without Wi-Fi.
Salinas admits not having Wi-Fi comes with its disadvantages, especially now with the classroom becoming more and more digital.

La Joya's Wi-Fi on Wheels has 28 buses, with each bus going to two designated locations in the area.  

Once situated, the buses are able to service 30-50 people from noon to 5 p.m.

La Joya Technology Director Clem Garza says in two weeks, they'll be adding 20 more buses in the hopes of servicing even more children.
