Get ready! School starts Thursday, August 29

e-Connections Post

Sacramento City Unified schools are getting ready to start the new school year, and we want to provide parents with relevant information for the first day of school:

The National Association of School Psychologists offers several tips for parents to help students make a smooth transition from summer to fall:

  • Visit the school with your student. Locating their classroom, restrooms, and the cafeteria will help ease pre-school anxieties — especially for children starting at a new school. 
  • Map out the route you will take to school. Whether driving, biking, or walking, do not wait until the last minute. Give yourself plenty of time to avoid the rush.
  • Re-establish bedtime and mealtime routines at least one week before school starts.
  • End late summer bedtimes and begin waking up your student at the time they will wake up during the school year.
  • Limit TV, video games, and computer time now. 
  • Designate a spot for backpacks, lunches, and important notices from school.
