CCS students to receive school supplies for coming year

Whether students need pencils, notebook paper, three-ring binders, crayons, or all the above, back-to-school shopping occurs every summer.

These school supply lists outline the items students are expected to bring on the first day. It’s a routine parents and their children are long accustomed to. Thanks to a generous donation, county students will depart from that norm in the 2021-2022 school year.

“County Schools will provide school supplies for the upcoming school year for all students. Most fees will be covered as well,” said Superintendent Shannon Driver.

The school system does not plan to issue backpacks or lunch boxes for students.

Some parents are excited about the news that supplies will be provided.

“We are so thankful for this blessing. I’m sure it’s going to help so many families during this time,” Haley Deramus said.

“This is a blessing especially for the families that can’t afford the supplies,” said Marilyn Weaver.

Hailey Russell said, “It is a true blessing for us considering the expense involved with having six children who each need supplies.”

The first day of school for teachers is August 9 and August 16 for students.

“We hope this will ease the financial burden on families. For more detailed information, parents can call their school office or check their school’s website,” Driver said.
