    Every SLPS Student Will Get a FREE Backpack of Supplies on DAY ONE!

    school starts 8/22

    The leaders of Saint Louis Public Schools have announced that, for the very first time, the District is providing grade-appropriate book bags and school supply kits to every student on the first day of school, Monday, August 22! Classrooms will have access to all the supply, all students need to do is BE THERE! Given the steady and on-going rise in prices particularly at the grocery store and at the gas pumps, the hope is that these free supplies will help ease the burden for all SLPS families.

    If you need additional supplies, please see the posted supply list on the website at www.slps.org/supplies

    In addition, don’t forget about Missouri’s Back-to-School sales tax holiday which starts at midnight on Friday, August 5 and ends at midnight the following Sunday, August 7  You can learn more about what type of supplies and electronics are included at https://dor.mo.gov/faq/taxation/business/back-to-school-sales-tax-holiday.html

    back to school expo

    And, on August 6, we will all be “Back Together Again!” Honoring a long-standing partnership, SLPS and the Urban League will host the first in-person Back-to-School Urban Expo since the start of the pandemic.  We plan to welcome thousands of students and their families to a day of fun!  There will be barbers on site, Physicals, vaccinations, backpacks and supplies, Egaming demonstrations, enrollment and hiring opportunities, entertainment, food and much more!  Making it even easier for our families, our new transportation partner, Missouri Central will run shuttles from the designated points in the District (click here for the listing) to the America’s Center.  More details to come!
