Updated Tools for Schools Hours of Operation

Tools for Schools is now open by appointment for Alachua County Public School teachers.  One hour appointments can be scheduled for shopping or 30 minute appointments can be made for donation drop off.

We will continue to open Tools for Schools by appointment only for teacher shopping and clean donations. During your private shopping appointment, we will allow one teacher inside the building at a time, with proper safety guidelines in place. Everyone must wear a mask at all times and hand sanitizer will be provided. Absolutely NO GUESTS (children, friends, family…) will be allowed inside the building. This rule will be strictly enforced for everyone’s health and safety. Teachers will have one hour to shop and many item limits have been lifted.

To schedule your shopping appointment or donation drop off please email ssamec@alachuacounty.us with the answers to the questions below. You may still have only one shopping turn a month unless you have a free shopping pass.

We will need the following information when you contact us:

1) Your full name

2) Date(s) you can come

3) Time slots you are available

4) Cell phone number

5) Name of school you teach at

6) Your school board email address
