The School District of Philadelphia’s first-ever School Bus Tour is now traveling around the city in two blue welcome back buses. On board is a team of street ambassadors who are providing information to students and their families about the 2021-2022 school year and helping to prepare them for a safe return to the classroom.
From August 9 through August 27, the tour hosts 31 pop-up events at churches, parks, recreation centers and four Shop Rites. At the tour stops, parents can register their children for kindergarten, sign up for parent portal, get a free backpack and school supplies and at select stops, children can obtain required immunizations.
