FWISD kicks off Back to School Roundup
City and school leaders reminded families to register for the upcoming Tarrant County Back to School Roundup on Thursday at a festive event complete with music, free haircuts and school supplies.
Community leaders urged parents to preregister for the 2016 Tarrant County Back to School Roundup, which will take place Aug. 10 at the Will Rogers Memorial Center. The roundup, presented by Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club, is described as a one-stop shop opportunity for families to gear up for the beginning of school.
It provides preregistered families with free school supplies. Families can also get health, dental and vision screenings, immunizations and haircuts.
Families must preregister at one of the events between now and Aug. 3. For more information go to backtoschoolroundup.org or call 211.
