PORT ANGELES — Free WiFi is now available in the parking lot of the former Fairview Elementary School, the Port Angeles School District announced Thursday.
This is in addition to the mobile WiFi the district has been operating, using school buses, in areas with uncertain internet access.
The new Wifi access point at Fairview at 166 Lake Farm Road — which has been vacant since 2008 — is created in collaboration with Clallam County Public Utility District and OlyPen.
“This new addition to the WiFi services currently being offered throughout our community is vital during the school closure,” Superintendent Martin Brewer said in a press release.
“Students need every opportunity to access their school work. Extended WiFi at Fairview helps students on the east side of town. That’s a great thing.”
The network is OlyPen Public and the password is the same at the Fairview site.
