Has back-to-school time snuck up on you again? Though your children may want to pretend that summer will never end, the return to the classroom grows closer with every passing day.
Aside from stocking backpacks with the proper school supplies and enforcing earlier bedtimes, it is also a good time to schedule a visit to your pediatrician to make sure your child is current on immunizations, medications and health forms that the school may need for the year ahead.
We hope the following tips and resources will help ease the transition and promote a successful back-to-school experience. Best of luck for the year ahead!
