Back to School Month in August gears up parents, teachers, schools, and students for a season of education.

Make sure you have the latest information from state, local, and school officials as we prepare to return to schools with Covid19. Maybe take some time and reinforce washing hands and Sanitizer too.

Arming yourself with the best information can help keep children and adults safe as we face this new reality. CDC also has great information that is up to date.

With shorter days, it’s time to dust off the backpacks, fill them up, and plan for a new school year. Preparing children for the new year includes everything from supplies, clothes, checkups, planning schedules, and making new friends. Teachers develop their lesson plans and ready their classrooms for the new, smiling faces.

Dont forget to find out when your tax free back to school holidays are and what’s included.

    Despite all the excitement, the expense of going back to school can put a damper on going back to school. Fill-the-bus events, backpack programs, and teacher supply initiatives help to fill the gaps. Organizations around the country pull together to make the first day of school fun every year.

    HOW TO OBSERVE

    Check your supply list, tour your new school, learn your schedule. Volunteer to show a new student around your stomping grounds. Have some fun before summer is over, too! How do you get ready for back to school? Share on social media using #NationalBackToSchoolMonth.

    HISTORY

    National Back to School Month has been observed since the 1960s.

    The school year has traditionally begun in the fall and ended in late spring allowing the children of farmers in our agricultural society to help with planting and harvesting. Though today most families have moved to a more urban and suburban lifestyle, most schools in the United States still function on this system. However, a trend toward a year-round school year is gaining steam.
