ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Due to less-than-ideal weather forecasts for the weekend, Roanoke City school officials decided to postpone Saturday’s “Back-to-School Extravaganza” until Sunday afternoon.

Roanoke City Public Schools says the drive-thru, school supplies event is set to take place at William Fleming High School from 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 30. Since the event is still drive-thru, attendees are asked to stay in their vehicles while they pick up their school supplies.

In addition, transportation will reportedly be available from Blue Stone Park, Hunt Manor, Indian Rock Village, Jamestown Place, Landsdowne Park, Melrose Towers, and Pilot Street (Country Cookin). Buses are set to leave at 1:45 p.m. on Sunday, but officials still ask attendees to wear face masks.

However, officials say immunizations will not be available on Sunday.
