Hot Spots

Parents, We are excited to announce that we have received a number of hotspots from the Alabama Broadband Connectivity for Students Program.  Any student who is on free or reduced lunch, and who has not already redeemed an internet voucher is eligible to get a hot spot. You may pick them up at Hueytown Middle School using the following schedule:  December 10-11 (Last Names A-L), December 14-15 (Last Names M-Z). 

Right now this program is slated to run till December 30th.  We are hopeful it will be extended.  However, in the event it is not, ABC for students is working on some other alternatives and we hope to receive that information in the coming weeks.


Regardless of if the program is extended, you will be allowed to keep the hotspot.  If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Burkholder.
