Back to School Tips To Help Us Adjust

The beginning of this school year is incredibly strange. Here are some tips to help.

With most students doing online school and many parents also working from home, the juggling act has proven to be overwhelming for almost everyone. Here are some ideas that may help:

  • Get familiar with the learning platform your child is using. Many online platforms have reminder and planning tools to help you and your child stay aware and on track.
  • Learn your child’s daily school schedule and plan to try to be available for the times they may need support. For example, some children might need help logging in at the start of the day.
  • Prepare for interruptions. For example, will your home network handle both you and your children to be working online at the same time?
  • Establish a routine. You can write up a schedule that includes wake-up times, meals, breaks, class transitions, times for online versus offline work during your workday so that everyone is on the same page about daily expectations.
