School Supply Lists
Each year, parents are paying up to $100 for school supplies per child. With COVID-19, we know many families are taking a financial hit, and we want to ease the burden of school supply costs when students come back to school.
With teacher and principal input, FWPS is determining what general school supplies are needed per grade level, with the exception of backpacks. The district can purchase the supplies in bulk to offer the supplies at a reduced price or no cost to families. For families who qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL), the supplies will be at no cost, otherwise it will be $20 per child.
This is a significant savings for families and helps at a critical time to ensure students have the tools they need to be successful in school.
Our community organizations and citizens have been big supporters of back to school efforts, and we welcome their support in other ways such as donating backpacks. Another option is to make cash donations on our website towards the general school supplies or towards the school lunch debt.
