It’s back to school time in Seminole County beginning August 10. The next Monday, schools in Volusia, Lake, Orange, and Osceola Counties will start back on August 13. It’s back to school time everybody!
Tourists that remain in the area will need to be aware of the hundreds of school buses on our roads – many are near the tourist attractions. This added traffic can create longer than normal travel times, so plan accordingly. Be especially aware of bus stops and SLOW down and STOP for children crossing the street and getting to school.
Back to School Bash
Area students and teachers may want to attend the Back to School Bash this Saturday, July 29 from 10am to 2pm at the Amway Center. Hope Now International organizes this event which hosts the largest health fair in the State of Florida. Over 25,000 people are expected to attend. Why? Primarily for the freebies!
Included in the FREE event are give-aways including:
- health screenings
- vision screenings
- school supplies
All services, backpacks and school supplies are offered on a first come first served basis. Everything is free, because it is all donated. Everyone working at this event is a volunteer. Hope Now International asks that you return one good deed with another and perform an act of kindness. This way the cycle of compassion and goodwill continue indefinitely.
