Low Cost Internet Access
We have been working with a national nonprofit, EveryoneOn, to assist families in being able to afford Internet access. The website the parents go to is http://everyoneon.org/wjusd. Currently the Internet provider in the area is T-Mobile. The lower cost plan is $10 a month plus a one time payment of $69 for the hot spot/mi-fi. This plan provides limited “fast” Internet access and unlimited “slower” Internet access.
RIDE YOUR BIKES TO SCHOOL!
Need a bike, helmet or lock? Got a flat? Want to donate your old bikes and get a bigger size or different style. The Woodland Bike Campaign invites parents, students and staff to come to their BIKE WORKSHOP every Wednesday from 2pm-5pm and SATURDAYS from 9am-noon, located at 1ST& HAYS (behind Douglass Middle School). Many ready to roll, mechanic-tested bikes are available for $30-$95 (cash only). Bike mechanics and a certified cycling instructor are on hand to help you with your biking needs. Ask about our internship program and community service credit.
