The Wylie ISD Council of PTA’s will host its annual Back the Future Drive-thru event on Saturday, Aug. 29 from 5:30- 7:30 p.m. This year, the festivities will look different than they have in years past. Like many events having to adjust to social distancing etiquette, Back the Future will be a drive-thru event, requiring families to drive up and stay in their vehicles in order to participate.
For the Council, Back the Future is an opportunity for the community to come together to support its students and their overall success.
“Investment in the education of children is an investment in our community’s future,” said Council president Kim Cubbage.
Attendees will be able to interact with the city of Wylie police department, WISD staff and other members of the community to kick off the new school year. Families will receive free In-N-Out Burger hamburger meals as they drive through, and will have the opportunity to buy cold treats from the Kona Ice truck while social distancing.
Though it will look different this year, Cubbage still encourages the community to come out for what she believes will be a fun-filled event.
“We hope the drive-thru format will not hinder attendance but will allow more families to attend in a safe environment,” Cubbage said.
The event will be held at Burnett Jr. High School, located at 516 Hilltop Lane in Wylie.
