Back to school checklist for parents

(WMC-TV) - For many of you, Monday is the first day for your kids to be back in school and it can be easy to forget a few things as you rush to get them out the door.

Action News 5 is hoping to make it easier on you with this back to school checklist:

1. How is your student getting to school each day? If they are riding a bike or taking the bus, have you reviewed school rules or safety precautions concerning traffic and strangers?

2. What time is lunch? Does your student have enough money to buy it at school or did they remember to pack one? Will they need to bring a snack?

3. Are there any uniform or clothing restrictions? Did your student pack extra clothes for gym or other classes that may require an outfit change?

4. Have you filled out all of the health forms and/or emergency contact forms required by the school? Does your student have any new health problems that could affect their school day? If they need to take medication, have arrangements been made?

5. Where is your student going after school? Do they know how they will arrive and who will be responsible if you are not there to pick them up?
