TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - With schools closed for the rest of the school year, special provisions have been made to continue serving both breakfast and lunch to children around the nation.

But Sunnyside Unified School District is offering students more than just food.

Starting this week students in the district could take advantage of free WiFi.

Twenty-eight buses have been equipped with mobile hotspots so that any child without internet access at home can have access.

The school wanted students to be able to access their assignments and check for teacher communication as they pick up their meals.

Buses will be used to bring meals to meal pick-up spots from 7:30 a.m. – 10 a.m. You can access the internet during those same hours, Monday through Friday.

This is free and open to any student 18 and under.

Those accessing the internet at these locations can park, connect, and remain in your car to maintain proper social distancing.
