Cougars News · WiFi Buses for Colleton County Students


Colleton County School District is happy to report that starting Monday, March 30, six buses with Wi-Fi capability will be placed at several of our schools to provide our community with Internet access during our closure period. These buses will be available at the following schools from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Monday through Friday:

Bells Elementary School (12088 Bells Highway, Ruffin SC)

Black Street Early Childhood Center (256 Smith Street, Walterboro SC)

Colleton County Middle School (1379 Tuskegee Airman Drive, Walterboro SC)

Cottageville Elementary School (648 Peirce Road, Cottageville SC)

Forest Hills Elementary School (633 Hiers Corner Road, Walterboro SC)

Hendersonville Elementary School (6089 Hendersonville Highway, Walterboro SC)

Users must park their vehicles within 250 feet of the bus to use the Wi-Fi hotspot, and the internet connection provided is content-filtered to prevent access to unapproved websites. The password to access the Wi-Fi connection will be clearly placed on multiple sides of the bus for maximum visibility.

Each of these sites will be regularly patrolled by school safety staff. School facilities and restrooms will not be available for visitor use, and all those using the bus Wi-Fi must remain in their cars to comply with Centers for Disease Control social distancing guidelines.

All of us at CCSD are excited to be able to provide this service to our students and their families!
