The Port Angeles School District is working with lead agency Parent Line/Lutheran Family Services and other local service organizations to host the event at Jefferson Elementary School, 218 E. 12th St.
Supplies and services will be offered free to students in kindergarten through 12th grades, except for immunizations required to be “school-ready.”
Those will be offered by Clallam County Health & Human Services for $12 per immunization. Medicaid can be billed for services.
At the event, Smile-Mobile staff will make appointments for the mobile dental unit’s visit from Sept. 9-21, and Sodexo Food Services will provide a lunch of a hot dog barbecue with all the fixings.
A volunteer “navigator” will assist attendees. There is no need to sign up in advance.
Donations and school supplies are being collected now at local banks and the Port Angeles School District Central Services office, 216 E. Fourth St.
