Chicago Public Schools announced the dates for its annual Back-to-School Bashe's starting Friday.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago Public Schools will kick-off its annual Back-to-School Bashes from 2 p.m. - 5 p.m. Friday at Finkl Academy on the Southwest side.

Friday's event will be the first of ten events scheduled throughout the city which are meant for students and families to connect with their school communities and get prepared for the new school year which is set to begin Aug. 22.

Along with the opportunity to connect with members of the school, attendees can receive school supplies, health information and receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

"Back-to-School Bashes provide families the opportunity to re-engage with their school communities and ensure they have the resources necessary for a healthy and successful school year," CPS CEO Pedro Martinez said.

Those looking for more information and resources to better prepare for the upcoming school year are encouraged to visit CPS's Back-to-School website which includes information on academic programs, community events, medical forms and safety protocols for the upcoming year.

All events run from 2 to 5 p.m. at these locations.
