Back-to-School Block Party set

The School District of Lee County is kicking off the school year with a Back-to-School Block Party on Aug. 3 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bell Tower Shops, at 13499 S. Cleveland Ave., Fort Myers.

Presented in partnership with Safe Kids Southwest Florida, the event is free and open to the public, offering family-friendly fun for all ages, including a “Safe-to-School” Safety Zone, interactive games, a bounce house, giveaways, music and a visit from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, multiple school resource officers and Deputy Dogs.

The “Safe-to-School” Safety Zone will get K-12 students ready to roll for straight-A safety, highlighting important safety tips for pedestrians, bicyclists, bus stop safety, driving and other student-related safety recommendations.
