Seems hard to believe but kids are beginning their journey back to school and heading online can help you prepare for a great year!
First thing you’ll want to check is your school’s website for important information and tips to make your experience the best it can be. You can also check with your school district to see any other helpful information you may need.
One of the top pieces of information you need to know is what type of vaccines your child will need to be able to attend his or her school. Most every school will list these requirements along with the date they need to be fulfilled by right there on their site. You can also check with the CDC for facts and information on these vaccines.
While you’re online you can check the school’s other departments including the cafeteria to see online menus for breakfast and lunch and some even allow you the opportunity to deposit money into your child’s lunch account without the hassle of having to send it with them to possibly get lost. Along with checking what’s for breakfast or lunch, you can also apply for financial assistance for meals.
Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day and if your child prefers to eat at home, there are many online sites that have some great recipes that kids will love! Many of these sites also provide some great and healthy lunch ideas as well.
As the students and parents adjust schedules and get back in the swing of the school year, one of their most used tech items will be the alarm clock and whether you’re low tech or high tech you probably need one. The alarms on smartphones are pretty good these days and since you usually always have your phone with you you won’t have to worry about not having your alarm.
And be sure to take full advantage of the tech offered in your digital calendars and organizers since that is a great way for families to keep track of each others’ busy school year schedules.
Wishing all of our young friends a happy and safe back to school!
