As a parent, are you ready to send your kids back to school? We do not know what schools and classrooms will look like next year, but we can start to do small things to prepare yourself as a parent and your kids.
1. It is better to buy velcro shoes for the school year’s opening rather than buy shoes that have laces. This will reduce the contact of your kid’s hands to the virus he might have stepped on. Velcro shoes are easier and safer because shoelaces are disgusting nowadays.
2. Grab the deals on Back to School sales every beginning of a school year. Still, it is a great way also to consider purchasing extra school supplies for your kids during this pandemic season so you would not need to run to the store back and forth whenever they lost something on their school supplies. In this way it is also safer to not do too much outside and interact with people and reduces the risk of getting infected.
3. Teachers will always teach your kids how to properly wash their hands, but it is also better to always remind and explain its importance as their parent. When kids are alone in the bathroom, it is important that they will know why they are doing it. Remind them also to keep their fingers out of their mouths and noses.
4. When packing lunches for your kids, make sure that it is easy to open. Another good idea is buying an easy to clean lunch box. This item will go in and out of the school with your kid, so it is better to choose the easily wiped off and easy to clean lunchbox like the bento boxes.
5. General guidelines say that there will be no borrowing, or even teachers are prohibited from using the community supplies in schools. This is the reason why we also have to label our kids school supplies. Don’t just mark the package of items.. Actually, label each individual piece.
6. Hand sanitizer and wipes are used very often, so grab some if you see them in stock now. These can be used to wipe down your kids, lunch boxes, folders, backpacks, and or anything that your kids bring back and forth from home and school.
7. Before classes start, train your kid ahead of time to zip and button any clothing they are wearing, including teaching them to tie a shoelace. Teach them to do things on their own, so it will be easy for them alone.
8. Communicate with kids’ teachers because each school and teacher has their particular guidelines depending on what they are and are not comfortable with when talking about the spread of Covid-19. Not just with the school and teachers but open communication with your co-parents is also a good idea to consider not.
9. As a parent, we must already know how to be patient and flexible, especially at this time of the situation. We are uncertain about how the next school year would be. The school district is doing its best to make things work.
