Spring ISD families getting ready for the upcoming school year are invited to the district’s 2021 Back to School Expo, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, July 31, at the district’s Planet Ford Stadium, 23802 Cypresswood Dr., Spring, TX 77373. The event will feature giveaways including free backpacks, school supplies and food distribution to support district families and students heading back to their classrooms in August.
Students will also have the opportunity to sign up for Chromebooks and internet hotspots, if needed, for the upcoming school year. In addition, through the district’s partnership with Harris County Public Health, individuals aged 12 and older will have the chance to receive their COVID-19 vaccination at the expo. Students vaccinated during the event will be entered in a special prize drawing.
Along with Harris County Public Health, the Spring ISD 2021 Back to School Expo is also being made possible by Northwest Assistance Ministries and other local organizations that are helping sponsor the free event.
“As always, we’re grateful to our community partners, whose support helps make events like this possible for our Spring ISD families and students,” said Executive Director of Family Engagement Tranita Carroll. “Although this year’s event is being kept smaller to help ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and community members, it’s still a great opportunity for all our families who are gearing up for the first day of school.”
Carroll said the expo had been scaled back from previous years to a mostly drive-thru event, except for those choosing to get COVID-19 vaccinations. District staff and administrators will be on hand to help direct traffic, greet students and their parents and guardians, and place items in vehicle trunks. In addition, district staff will be evaluating students whose first language is not English.
