This program is designed to save you time and make “back-to-school time” less hectic. Order a kit and you can cross “Shopping for School Supplies” off your summer to-do list now!

Online ordering will begin 4/12/17 and the portal will remain open until 5/5/17! Orders may only be placed online at the SchoolKidz website, www.shopttkits.com. Here’s how to order:

Enter the Haynes Account Number, 86093, in the green box and click the search button to call up the list of kits for Haynes.Please be sure to purchase the kit for the grade your child will be entering in the fall.
