Schools are closed statewide through April 3rd as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and a disaster declaration statement by Texas Governor Abbott.

Although schools are closed, learning will go on virtually. Elementary, middle and high school students, as well as college students, will be adjusting to online classes in the coming days. Many students already have access to the internet, whether it be at home or via their cell phone, but there are many students in our community that simply do not have access to the internet. A must have thing when it comes to online classes.

Local cable TV and internet provider Suddenlink is stepping in and offering free internet service for 60 days for students impacted by the COVID-19 coronavirus school closures. Suddenlink is offering the following to customers within a Suddenlink served area:

Suddenlink is offering Altice Advantage Internet free for 60 days, where available, to any household in our service area that has a student from K-12 and/or college.
This special Suddenlink service is for students who are displaced due to school closures and who don’t have Internet access at home.

After your first 60 free days of Internet service expires, those affected can either cancel the service, or keep it as a regular paying Altice Advantage Internet customer at the low rate of only $14.99 per month, with no annual contract.

This is a very generous offer from Suddenlink/Altice so that our students may continue to learn during these difficult and unprecedented times. There are terms and conditions that you should be aware of as well.
