Mobile Hotspot Help

Hallsville ISD Public WiFi Hotspots

  • We've setup a few wi-fi hotspots across the district parking lots that may be reached from the comfort of your vehicle. The network name to use is "hisd-wnet-guest" and while there is no password, you will be required to accept the HISD Acceptable Use Policy pop-up to access the network. This connection should be compatible with most newer devices but we highly recommend using a laptop or Chromebook rather than a phone or tablet. The see a map a all HISD hotspot locations please see https://bit.ly/2wn9ekl.
