Aug 16, 2022 – Switching from a summer to a school schedule can be stressful for students and families. Establishing a routine can make your child feel comfortable and make the first week of school go much smoother. Have your child lay out the clothes they plan to wear to school the next day. Have meals and snacks ready to go the night before. Encourage everyone to go to bed early and get up 15 to 30 minutes earlier so they’re not rushing around in the morning.
