Back to school fair draws students, parents to Henderson mall

The first of this year’s Cox Back to School Fairs kicked off Saturday morning, drawing a steady stream of parents and students to The Galleria at Sunset in Henderson.

Clark County School District Superintendent Jesus Jara was among those on hand at the event, which is designed to help parents and students get ready for the new school year. CCSD students go back to school on Aug. 12.

The fairs, sponsored by Nevada Health Link, continue on July 27 at The Boulevard mall; Aug. 3 at Meadows Mall; and Aug. 10 at Downtown Summerlin, according to a news release. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Officials from the school district as well as representatives from more than 30 community agencies and organizations will have booths at the fairs.

Saturday’s fair provided an opportunity for students to get reasonably priced, school-required immunizations. The immunizations also will be offered at the July 27 and Aug. 3 events. Cost may range from no co-pay to low-fee to no charge depending on a family’s insurance status, the release said.
