Get Ready for In-Person Classes

Whether your kids will return to classes part-time or full-time, you will need to prepare in advance. Here are a few things to consider doing now.

  • If you plan on switching schools, look at local charter school options with open seats.
  • Check whether your school will require masks. If so, make some fun masks together.
  • Stock up on hand sanitizing wipes for your kids to carry in their backpacks.
  • Begin meal planning for healthy lunches your kids can take to school.
  • Start upping your cleaning efforts at home with alcohol solutions that kill the virus.
