SIGN UP FOR 348 NOTIFICATIONS:
If you are ever experiencing trouble with your Chromebook and you tried everything to try to get it to work, the first thing you should do is to hold the power button down for at least 20 seconds (19 won't work). This is to turn off your device and do a quick reset. After you hold the power button down, turn it back on and see if the problem persists. If that doesn't work, email me (if possible) to see if there is something else you need to try before bringing it up to the office.
Wabash County CUSD #348
WiFi Community Outreach Program
Wabash County CUSD #348 has developed the following program to assist the community and our students that are struggling with WiFi connectivity. This program utilizes the capabilities of the District by establishing WiFi Cafes, computer lab accessibility, transportation opportunities, onsite WiFi at the school buildings, and offsite WiFi hotspots distributed throughout the county. This program will begin on August 24th, 2020.
WiFi Cafes: The WiFi Cafes will be established in the Mt. Carmel Grade and High Schools. These ‘cafes’ will have accommodations for up to forty students at a time. Students may select from a morning option (9 am - 11 am) or the afternoon option (12 pm - 2 pm). The Cafes are opportunities for students in grades 3-12. Students that attend the Cafes will have to bring their own school-issued or personal computing devices and any other school work materials. While at the Cafes, the students will be required to follow all student handbook requirements and any other additional building requirements. Students will enter the Jr/Sr. High School at the main entrance, and students will enter the Grade School at the gym entrance. Additionally, students will be required to have a temperature check, wear a face covering, and practice social distancing. The Cafes will also provide snacks and water along with lunch.
For WiFi Cafes located at Mount Carmel Jr./Sr.High School and Mount Carmel Grade School please contact Aaron Croft by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Phone: (618) 262-5104.
Transportation: For those students that need transportation to the Cafes, the District will offer bus transportation to and from the Cafes. Buses will be available for both AM and PM sections. All bus riders will have their temperature checked by the bus driver, and all bus transportation policies will be enforced. If you need bus transportation, you will need to call 618-262-8539 between the hours of 9 am - 2 pm Monday through Friday to make arrangements.
WiFi Onsite: WiFi has been made available to students at all three school locations in the district.
