All DCPS schools have placed orange “yard card” signs on their campuses to indicate the location of WiFi hot spots. Students and families may park near these areas to download assignments between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily. More information, including a map of DCPS WiFi hotspots, is available at www.dcps.org/wifi
Daviess County Public Schools district school buses equipped with WiFi will be stationed at designated areas throughout the county to ensure that students whose homes do not have access to high-speed internet will still have the opportunity to download and access instructional materials and resources to support virtual learning.
Beginning Monday, Nov. 23, 2020, DCPS school buses will be located at the sites listed below. Students will have the opportunity to access the internet to download assignments and educational videos. All students, families and staff members will follow health and safety practices such as social distancing and wearing face masks at all times while on site.
DCPS Wi-Fi buses will be available at Chuck Gray Court, Colony Mobile Home Park, RiverBend Mobile Home Park and Dixiana Court between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Members of the community who wish to support students who are engaged in virtual learning are invited to donate old or unused laptops to the district. DCPS computer technicians can wipe the hard drives of these laptops and convert them to Chromebooks, which will then be given to students who are eager to learn. Laptops may be delivered to the DCPS Central Office at 1622 Southeastern Parkway, or write to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule pickup.
