Students are enjoying the summer now, but school will be back in session soon enough.

Pre-registration for Tarrant County’s 15th annual Back to School Roundup is underway through 26. Families may preregister for school supplies online or in-person during normal business hours at any Tarrant County sub-courthouse.

School supplies will be distributed on Aug. 8 from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Tarrant County College South campus, 5301 Campus Dr.

Families who pre-register will receive a voucher admitting them into the Aug. 8 roundup event and guaranteeing free school supplies for children ages 3-18. Supplies include backpacks.

Students can also receive free haircuts, health screenings, including dental and visual, along with immunizations. There will also be access to health and social resources, along with activities and games.

To qualify for the free supplies, families must produce:

*Valid photo identification.

*Proof of Tarrant County residency (May, June or July 2019 utility bill showing applicant’s name and current address).

*Proof of income (must meet 2019 federal income poverty guidelines).

The one-stop event offers approximately 10,000 underserved Tarrant County children.

The roundup is a collaborative effort of Tarrant County, 20 area public school districts, the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County Public Health, state agencies, nonprofit organizations, corporations and volunteers.
