Back to School Tips

 

BACKPACK

  • Choose a wide backpack with padded shoulders and don’t overload! Usually, no more than 10 to 20% of your child’s weight should be the max.

TRAVELING TO AND FROM SCHOOL

  • BUS – Remind your child to follow all the safety rules about boarding and unboarding the bus. If your child has a medical condition, make sure the bus personnel know.
  • BIKE – If they’re riding their bike to school make sure they wear their helmet and wear bright clothing or reflective gear to be visible by motorists.
  • WALKING – Make sure their route is safe and preferably with other children or adults.

NUTRITION

  • Never underestimate the value of a nutritious breakfast either at home or at school.


HOMEWORK AND STUDY

  • Create a distraction-free study space with adequate lighting.
  • Most educators recommend homework to be handled shortly after arriving home to avoid distractions and the need for late evening study.
  • Don’t forget that many schools offer tutoring if your student needs extra help.

PERSONAL (EMERGENCY) KIT

  • Most of the time, everything goes as planned. But, it never hurts to have a little personal emergency pack tucked down in their backpack in case they need it. Chap Stick, a Band-Aid or two, hand sanitizer, tissues, a food bar, etc. Whatever you think they might want and what is allowable by the school.
