The night before the first day of school is a crucial time. Get all of your ducks (and kids) in a row with these tips.
The excitement is building. Kids are heading back to school. The school buses will be running again, the kids will be back to learning again. Are you ready? The night before is a crucial time. Get all of your ducks (and kids) in a row with these tips:
Make sure you have the basics: pencils, paper, house key (if kids come home before parents), phone (for older kids), and lunch. (Dreamstime/TNS)
Where it stops and when changes each year. Go to your district’s bus stop finder. If your district has an app to track the bus download it. (Dreamstime/TNS)
Don’t be the car holding up traffic. Look at the school’s website for clues or ask the neighbor. (Dreamstime/TNS)
Do they go to assembly or their classroom that first day? For older kids, are they heading to homeroom (or whatever newfangled name that have for it) or their first class? (Dreamstime/TNS)
Make sure to have healthy things, not just junk food. Or load up your school lunch account with dollars. (Dreamstime/TNS)
It’s a big decision. Go for comfort and make sure it’s dress-code appropriate. Make sure you know where the shoes are. (Dreamstime/TNS)
Actually set two alarms. We know you didn’t practice getting up earlier in the last few weeks. You don’t want to start the year by being late. (Dreamstime/TNS)
Yep, we know it’s tough, and the excitement is making everyone want to burst. You can do it. (Dreamstime/TNS)
