Preparing to send your kids off to K6 School this year can be excitingly stressful. Knowing that they are going to make new friends, learn so much about everything, and enjoy new experiences helps to remove some of the angst of losing all of that time with the kids. What do you need to do to prepare for K6 School? Here, you'll find a few tips to help you get started long before the school year starts.
Visit the Website
Each school has loaded their website with information to help parents prepare for the school year, as well as stay organized and in the loop during the school year. Familiarize yourself with the layout of the website and check out all of the resource links that they have provided. This is where you'll find the information that applied directly to your child's school.
Print the Forms
The website should contain downloadable forms that you'll need to fill out or have your child's doctor fill out before school starts. These forms may include emergency contact information, dental exam requirements, and a medical physical form for the doctor to fill out.
You may also find forms for financial assistance or reduced-priced lunches. These forms typically require some sort of proof of income, so getting to this early will help ease your burdens when the school year begins.
Kids need vaccinations at certain ages. If you are unsure if your child is up to date on vaccinations, it's best to find out before the school year begins. Your child's doctor will be able to check their records and tell you what vaccinations are due at the time. Having the kids get vaccinated during the summer will give them the free time to recover from the side effects without missing any school.
Clothing and Supplies
The website should also provide you any information about whether the school requires uniforms and what the dress code is. Knowing the dress code before you do your school shopping will help avoid overspending on things the kids won't even be allowed to wear.
You'll also be able to find out what supplies you are required to send in for both your child's use and classroom use. Oftentimes, the school requests a short list of supplies to be sent in so that they are prepared for the year.
This will be a great year — hopefully, you'll be prepared for the first day without stressing out too much.
