JONESBORO — Clayton County schools is offering free summer learning supplies to students in grades K-8.

The supplies are part of the district’s SummerT.I.M.E. program, a series of learning experiences designed to allow students to participate in positive learning and engage in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math activities.

District officials said both the supplies and program provides students at-home learning experiences to develop skills colleges and employers are currently looking for in STEM literate individuals.

Additionally students will receive resources “carefully selected to support bridging any learning gaps due to recent school closures and minimize the summer slide.”

Supplies will be distributed at Tara, Huie and West Clayton elementary schools, Riverdale Middle School and Lovejoy High from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, June 24 and Friday, June 26.

To receive supplies children must be registered students of Clayton County Public Schools. Parents will need to provide the student ID number, school and grade level.
