2017 Back-To-School

For a list of ways schools can promote Back-To-School, open FAMIS Outreach Ideas for Schools. To order free FAMIS materials, visit the Materials page.

FAMIS, in collaboration with the Department of Education, is pleased to announce the 16th Annual Back-To-School Campaign.

This year, every public school student in Virginia will be receiving a FAMIS Back-To-School flyer during the first week of school. Over 1.5 million flyers were shipped to more than 1,800 schools across the Commonwealth. In addition, FAMIS Inserts were sent to participating school divisions, to be distributed with acceptance letters for the Free and Reduced Price School Lunch Program.

To print out a copy of the FAMIS Back-To-School Flyer, go to the Materials page.

We’d like your help! You can be a part of our Back-To-School Campaign. Help spread the word about FAMIS by distributing our materials at your school, church, or community event. If you have any questions about the Back-To-School Campaign, or would like to tell us about an event in your area or to request assistance with outreach, contact us at famis@dmas.virginia.gov.

Signing up for FAMIS is one of the easiest parts of parenting! Check out and share our FAMIS TV Ad. Help us get every eligible child the coverage they need! Spread the word to your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers.

The Virginia Health Care Foundation, in partnership with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Connecting Kids to Coverage initiative, and the Virginia Department of Education, have teamed up this fall to educate coaches and athletics directors on how to get teens enrolled in the FAMIS Programs.
