Fulton County Schools' back-to-school school supply fair will look a little different this year.

The fourth annual First Day Fulton event will be in drive-thru fashion this year, set to take place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Aug. 1, according to a news release from the district July 30. The event will be held at Banneker High School in south Fulton County and North Springs High School in north Fulton County, according to the release.

Parents must register in advance due to limited supplies, which can be done at www.fultonschools.org/firstdayfulton. Parents will use a student identification number and receive an online confirmation, which will serve as the reservation for picking up supplies.

Families will also have the opportunity to receive food and other items from event sponsors including Atlanta Community Food Bank; Family Health Centers of Georgia; Georgia Women, Infants & Children; and others.


Banneker High School is located at 6015 Feldwood Road, College Park, and North Springs High School is located at 7447 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs.
