The Chambers County School District is planning on sponsoring a dress code expo for our students on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, July 14th -18th.
We plan on hosting vendors which will have clothing for sale for our students and their families to purchase that will be permissible for the upcoming school year under the new approved board dress code revisions.
The dress code expo will be hosted in two different sites to make it easier for families to attend.  Some of the vendors are planning cost saving incentives for families to participate.
The first site will be set up at Bob Harding Shawmut Elementary School in Valley in the air conditioned gymnasium.  The event will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. EST on Thursday, July 14th, Friday, July 15th and Saturday, July 16th.  Additionally, all visitors will be able to participate with purchases using Alabama’s tax free weekend incentive for back to school shopping.
The second site will be set up at the ALFA Building in LaFayette on Sunday, July 17th and Monday, July 18th.  Sunday’s sale hours in LaFayette will be from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. CST.  Monday, July 18th will be the final day of the Expo with sale hours from 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Finally, please have interested parties that wish to participate as vendors reach out to David Owen, Assistant Superintendent with Chambers County Schools at 334-864-9343 or by email at [email protected]
