Friday is the last day of school for Shoreline Schools, but the Back to School consortium has already begun collecting donations for the Back to School Event on August 25.

Registration is now open for the annual Shoreline Back To School event, which provides school supplies, hair cuts, and clothing assistance to Shoreline School District families with low incomes and/ or circumstances that make it challenging to adequately prepare their children for school. To register for the August 25 event, visit the Back To School Consortium website or call the information line at 206-393-4916.
