Back to School Fairs offer resources to families

July 12, 2016

As parents are getting ready to send their kids back to school, many will realize their children will need up-to-date immunizations and physicals.

To assist families, Hillsborough County Public Schools, in partnership with the Back to School Coalition of Hillsborough County, will host several Back to School Fairs, enabling children to meet school requirements to start school on time (see dates, times and locations below).

Those who register for the event will be eligible to receive free immunizations, physicals, and a backpack filled with school supplies. 

In addition, School Board Member Susan Valdes is proudly hosting the Annual Back to School Fair at Leto High School on August 6 (no registration or appointments necessary). This fair is in its' eleventh year and continues to be a meaningful resource and staple in the community.

Back to School Fair Check List:

  • A parent or legal guardian must accompany children at all times.
  • Free physicals are available for children in kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12).
  • Immunization records are required for children to receive free immunizations. Sports, Head Start, and Child Care physicals will NOT be available during the fairs.
  • Free backpack with school supplies (while supplies last)
  • Free kid friendly activities, community resources and school supplies
  • Open to all K-12 students enrolling in a private, charter or public school.

Appointments are required at most sites with the exception of the Annual Back to School Fair at Leto.
