  1. I have 2 jr honor roll students and we have no wifi/internet nor any computers for my girls to keep up in school. They worked very hard to make it to the jr honor roll society this time around and because we have no money plus not getting child support, we can barely afford food so what do we do now. ?? It seems to me that they should do homework through the mail however they have no books. Just what exactly is in play ? We r 30 minutes one way from school. What about the kids that are an hour one way or even more. I know there is at Frostproof Mid. Sr. High where my grandaughters go.
