Preparing for back-to-school during an unprecedented time has certainly been challenging for parents and caregivers. For those who have been overwhelmed at the prospect of what their kids will need for the new school landscape, there are tips for any situation that can make your everyday routine a bit easier.

On September 21st, lifestyle journalist and mom Julie Loffredi will be available with the latest tips and tools necessary for any back-to-school scenario, whether your little ones will be in the classroom or remote learning.


Some of Julie’s tips will include:

·         MAKE ROOM FOR FAMILY TIME:  Work and school schedules can get pretty packed! With some families learning and working from home there is greater flexibility for weekend getaways. Check local travel options available for families looking for a weekend get-away or a change of scenery while working and learning from home. Check out all-in-one websites that can offer great deals on car rentals, cozy local accommodations and keep you up-to-date on local COVID-19 restrictions.

·         GET CREATIVE WITH LUNCHTIME: Prepping lunch items in advance can save time in your busy day. Fun and creative lunches keep the kids happy and engaged whether at school or learning from home.

·         CREATE A SPACE FOR WORK AND SCHOOL:  When working and learning from home create a special space for children to complete online lessons or homework that is separate from mom and dad’s remote workspace. This will help kids feel independent and give you both the space to work efficiently.

·         ROUTINE IS KEY: If the kids are learning remotely full-time or part-time, try to stick to a routine each day.  Set up their class schedule on a white board and always make time for snack and movement breaks!
