Back to School Readiness- 10 Tips to get you Ready for Back to School

Schools  in jersey city Back to School

It is August and we are currently in the middle of a heat wave. Hectic shopping for back to school is the last thing you want to think about as a parent or the child. However it’s necessary to start not only shopping but preparing to reset your schedule for the school calendar and the first days of school.

As an educator for over 13 years, I love the “back to school’ feeling of watching students looking nervous about what’s to come and parents eagerly awaiting to meet the teacher of their children. Sometimes though the entire process may be overwhelming for all involved.  So as I research and review my top 10 tips, I came across some back to school tips offered by Kids.Gov that I would love to share.

10 Tips to Get You Ready for Back to School- Kids.Gov

1. Schedule time with teachers. Keep an open dialog with school staff to help your children thrive.

2. Get your shots. Some schools require immunization records for entry. Find out if your child needs any vaccines before school starts.

3. Ease into the school routine. A good night sleep is key to a successful school day. Preschoolers need 11-12 hours of sleep a night, school-age children need at least 10 hours, while teens need 9-10 hours.

4. Pack a healthy and safe lunch. Choose a balanced meal for your children’s lunchbox and make sure you keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. Low-income families may qualify for free and reduced price school meals.

5. Shop smart. Some states have sales tax holidays in August. Make a list, know what you need, and shop the sales. Knowing where the bargains are will help you save.

6. Talk to your kids about online safety. Identity theft, bullying or inappropriate behavior can happen online. Teach your children about online safety as use social media to connect with old and new friends at school.

7. Plan and practice how to get to school. If your kids’ school or school system provides bus transportation, find the nearest stop to your home and the pick-up and drop-off times. Teach your kids to be safe whether by car, bus, bicycle or walking.

8. Teach time management. Leisure time, sports, and “screen time” can interfere with homework. Keep your family’s schedule on time with these tips.

9. Make sure kids are insured. Your child could qualify for free or low-cost insurance through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

10. Listen to your kids. Anxiety and nerves can take over, so provide a safe environment at home and in the classroom. Talk to kids about bullying and what to do if they encounter it.

 

All in all, back to school readiness does not have to be too stressful. If you prepare  yourself appropriately you will have enough time to enjoy the last few weeks of summer.
