Free School Bus WiFi Locations

There are a number of free WiFi options available in the Othello area. Our district schools all have free WiFi available in their parking lots, as does the Othello Library (101 East Main St.).

 

Beginning Setember 2nd, we will also be parking WiFi equipped school buses at the following locations each school day:

 

9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.:
Washington Square Apartments (1065 S. 4th Ave.)
Lions Park Apartments
3rd @ Juniper/Spruce
Little Mexico North (June/Andes Rd.)
Little Mexico South (Saddle Rd. & Panama)
Othello Manor (815 S. Taylor)

 

12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Gemstone (Guadalupe Haven Apartments)
Sportsman Trailer Court
Othello Housing Authority Office Area
Eagle Apartments
Yellow Camp
Radar Trailer Court
Golden Plains 

 

Up to 40 students can connect to a bus WiFi hotspot at one time. They must be within 40 yards (120 feet, or 36 meters) of the bus to receive a signal, and objects like walls, cars, and other obstructions may limit the effective distance of the WiFi signal.

 

Othello School District may be able to assist families who do not have any access internet at home, or who only have very low bandwidth options. Please contact your child’s school for information about what options may be available. We cannot guarantee that a hotspot will be available for all families.
