Lee County students get ready to roll for straight-A safety
The School District of Lee County is kicking off the school year with a Back-to-School Block Party from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 10 at Bell Tower Shops.
Presented in partnership with Safe Kids Southwest Florida, Lee County’s largest back-to-school block party is free and open to the public, offering family friendly fun for all ages, including a “Safe-to-School” Safety Zone, interactive games, a bounce house, giveaways, music and a visit from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office to include Sheriff Carmine Marceno, multiple school resource officers and Deputy Dogs.
The “Safe-to-School” Safety Zone will get K-12 students ready to roll for straight-A safety, highlighting important safety tips for pedestrians, bicyclists, bus stop safety, driving and other student-related safety recommendations.
“We are excited to start the new school year and welcome our students back to campus,” says Superintendent Dr. Greg Adkins. “The Back to School Block Party is the perfect way to get students excited but also remind them about ways to stay safe when they ride the bus. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
Bell Tower Shops is located at 13499 S. Cleveland Ave. in Fort Myers. Media is invited to attend. Please RSVP to News@leeschools.net
