• No pre-registration is required to attend or receive school supplies.
• Free school supply kits and backpacks will be provided for WFISD and CVISD students who qualify for the free and reduced lunch program. The school supply kits will contain the majority of the required school supplies.
• Children in Head Start and PK will receive a backpack and crayons.
• Students at Burgess, Lamar, Scotland Park, Washington and Zundy elementary schools will receive school supplies and backpacks at their school, not at the Roundup.
• Community resource booths will have information about school and community services, youth programs, assistance programs, health and safety and free giveaways.
A limited number of school uniform shirts have been provided to the WFISD schools requiring uniforms. For assistance, parents must contact the school’s counselor.
Everyone is welcome to attend the Roundup, however to receive free school supplies and a backpack, the child must qualify for the lunch program and:
• Bring proof of eligibility (such as school letter showing students’ qualification for the lunch program, or other proof including Medicaid, CHIP, Lone Star card and SNAP) Any proof of receiving government assistance will be accepted.
• Be enrolled in a WFISD or CVISD school
• Be accompanied by an adult, if under the age of 16. Children are not required to attend.
• Complete a student registration card for each child prior to receiving supplies.
