With the first week of school no underway, we'd like to remind everyone of our drive-up WiFi service available at several of our school parking lots. We understand many individuals may lack reliable high speed internet at home, and this service will allow all students and staff to visit any of the schools listed below to connect to the WiFi from your vehicles. 


You can find a complete list of 16 available schools by visiting our School WiFi website.  Please note the highlighted areas in green, which show the designated parking spaces for students and staff to receive the best WiFi signal at each building. Individuals are asked to please remain in their vehicle, and abide by all social distancing guidelines while accessing WiFi at our buildings.


This service is for staff and student use only. Please be aware that the WPS60 WiFi network is not open to the public. Only student Chromebooks or District laptops will be able to connect to the WiFi. Students and staff will be able to access the WiFi from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day.

Please see the WiFi instructions for students and staff below. Staff may need to re-authenticate your district account to connect to the WiFi. 


How To Connect - Staff Members:

The “WiFi Drive-up” services only support downloading of class materials for remote learning and academic studies. For optimal internet speeds we recommend a vehicle limit of 10 for the elementary and middle schools and 15 for the Brookside Campus location. Connection speeds are limited, as they are influenced by a number of different factors, including surrounding neighborhood conditions and Chromebook battery charge.  For technical support with WiFi connections please call 224-303-1110.
