Covid-19 back to school

It’s back-to-school time and this year, with Covid-19 to contend with, there’s so much more to consider. Whether you choose to send your children back to the classroom or home school, this month's blog shares some general tips to ease the family into a school year schedule.

  • Start now to re-introduce a school year bedtime; make bedtime slightly earlier and begin gradually waking them earlier.
  • Plan and schedule meals and snacks to coincide with the school-day schedule before the school year begins.
  • Set up a family calendar centre in your home – a central place to track appointments, activities and assignment deadlines.
  • Plan before you shop. Take some time to assess what each child truly needs, so you don’t overspend where it’s not needed. And while you’re at it, take some time to clear out closets of clothes that no longer fit and donate them.
  • Re-establish a school routine by having your child practice getting up, getting ready, having breakfast and getting to school. Timing your routine and the transportation to school will ensure fewer late days.
  • Begin limiting your child’s TV and device time, so replacing it with homework time is less of a struggle.

Implementing these tips will help eleviate some of the back-to-school angst our kids can feel.
