Families wishing to take part will need to pre-register for the event at www.cabq.gov/family/events/cruzin-into-the-school-year-1. The registration is required for each individual child planning to attend and all registered children must be present to receive free supplies, according to the release.

Local providers will be performing sports physicals, as well as giving out COVID-19 vaccinations. Several city departments will have on-site information booths to inform families about resources available for students throughout the school year.

“We know that, this year, with the cost of everyday shopping rising, it is especially important that we all jump in and help so parents can stay focused on looking ahead to a successful school year for their children,” Mayor Tim Keller said in the release.
