‘Summerfest: Drive-Thru Edition’ to Prep KCPS Kids for Classes
The Kansas City Public Schools Education Foundation is partnering with public health providers to ensure that KCPS students are ready to engage in learning when classes start on Sept. 8.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we’re going to stay safe and help prepare our students for classes by hosting “Summerfest: Drive-Thru Edition.” KCPS students can complete a mandatory pre-registration for this event in order to get a backpack with school supplies free of charge.
Summerfest: Drive-Thru Edition will be held at two different locations and dates in August:
- 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 22 at East High School (1924 Van Brunt Blvd., Kansas City, MO)
- 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 29 at Southeast High School (3500 E. Meyer Blvd., Kansas City, MO)
Summerfest: Drive-Thru Edition is for families with KCPS students only. Families must pre-register to participate by visiting www.KCPublicSchools.org/Summerfest. Personal Protective Equipment will be used and social-distancing guidelines followed by everyone who participates.
Immunizations, lead testing and other student health services will also be provided on-site. There are a limited number of timeslots available for the student health services and they will be reserved on a first-come-first-serve basis. The public health partners for this event include Swope Health Services, Children’s Mercy, Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center, Truman Medical Center, the Kansas City Health Department and the KC Care Clinic
