Welcome to the Back to School Blast!
Getting your family prepared to head Back to School, can be difficult especially after a long, fun-filled summer. Here are a few of our favorite Back to School Tips to help you along the way.
1. Medical Requirements for School – Does the school have immunization requirements and are the kids up to date. If you decide to not have your child immunized do you have the proper documentation so the kids can go to school? Do I have to notify the school regarding food allergies? I know our grandson would need to have the school be aware of his allergies to dairy, gluten, soy and nuts. Are there medications that the school needs to be aware that your child takes? My grandson has to have an epi-pen available so that would have to be kept with the school health person and they would need to know how to use it.
2. Back to School Supplies Checklist – Backpack? Check. Pencils? Check. Safety scissors? Not Yet. Use the same checklist each time you head out to grab supplies, to keep track of what you have already purchased and the things you still need to. These are also handy if you have more than one child. Simply print 2, 3, 4 list and add their name to the top.
3. Prepare the Child for School – Begin talking about school beginning and that they will need to get up early and go to bed earlier in the evening. Discuss with them how they will get to school and how they will get back home. Will they be taking a bus, riding a bike, walking or carpooling to school? Discuss with them or have arrangements made for after school care if you are not able to be home when school is out.
