Scenes from Our First Back-to-School Bash

Last Friday, the district hosted its first Back-to-School Bash to help our families prepare for the 2021-22 school year, which begins on Monday, August 30. We have nine more bashes scheduled for the rest of August, some of which are opportunities to become vaccinated against COVID-19 and all of which provide free school supplies and activities to help school communities reconnect before the new school year begins.
