Can I order even if my school is not participating in the program?
Yes, anyone can order their supplies from School Tool Box, however, we may not have your exact list posted on our site. In this case you would want to have your child's list with you and place each item on the list into your shopping cart.

How do I find the list from my student's school?
If your school has built their lists with us, you can find that by searching for pre-built boxes for your school, or by logging into your account and creating a record for your student.

Do I need an account to place an order through
No, you do not need an account with School Tool Box in order to purchase individual items, pre-built lists or Teacher Wish List items. We do recommend registering for an account, however, as it will provide you with order and tracking details.

How do I know if my order was placed successfully?

How will I receive my order?
We offer two different programs (visit our Program Info page for more details) and they have different delivery methods. If your products are shipping to your home they will ship from our warehouse up to 10 business days after your order has been placed.

If your order is being distributed by your school, contact your school's sponsor for more details regarding pick up. Each school is different and can provide you more detailed information.

You can call our customer service number or fill out your information on the Contact Us page (you'll find a link on each page you visit). We'll help you from there!

Returned products must be in the condition you received them and in the original box and/or packaging. For orders placed through our ship-to-school program, we are unable to cancel orders after the school's deadline has passed.
