Back-to-School Fair Being Held Saturday, August 6
The Back to School Fair Committee and KCKPS have partnered for the 23rd annual Wyandotte County Back to School Fair, Saturday, August 6, at F. L. Schlagle High School and North Central Office Campus, from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
This fun-filled event is an opportunity for all students across Wyandotte County to receive much needed school supplies, backpacks, hygiene kits, books and more. Organizers plan to hand out at least 3,000 backpacks at the event, while supplies last.
Sports physicals will also be offered to students as well as recommended school immunizations, COVID test kits and vaccines, as well as health screenings, such as dental and vision, at no cost.
Leaders of the Enough is Enough campaign, which is an anti-crime prevention group, will be in attendance. They’ll be offering important information on conflict resolutions among students, along with games, live music, and treats.
The Wyandotte County Back to School Fair event is important because it helps get students off to a positive school year. They don’t have to worry about not having the right supplies, or other necessities for class. The fair also makes going back to school a little easier for parents. The heavy burden of making sure their child is ready for class is lifted.
Students will be required to register upon arrival. Parents must also provide proof of residence in Wyandotte County.
Families will have the opportunity to register and pre-enroll their child for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year.
Last year’s Wyandotte County Back to School Fair was drive-through only due to Covid-19 concerns. But this year, the fair will be in-person at F. L. Schlagle High School, located at 2214 N. 59th St. in Kansas City, KS.
The Back to School Fair Committee is comprised of caring members of the Wyandotte County Community, who are dedicated to improving the lives of our students.
