Wrapping up Summer and Getting Prepared For the 2020-2021 School Year

Summer is coming to an end and navigating the process of returning to school this year will be more different than any other for parents and educators alike. Learning was slightly halted during the 2019-2020 school year after in-person classes were no longer a possibility. Because of this many parents worry about their kids having fallen behind too much to catch up this Fall. With this in mind, we’ve come up with tips for wrapping up the Summer and transitioning into the 2020-2021 school year as smoothly as possible:

 

  • Ask your child about their feelings (both excitement and concerns) regarding going back to school. Regardless of your child’s age this is an important and helpful conversation to have. Ask them about the coming school year, what they are expecting, what they might be fearful of, what they are excited about, and what goals they have for the Fall. 
  • FInd out and let your child know what his schedule will be like this school year. Visit your school’s website and find out what the schedule will look like this coming year. What is different about this year than other years? Is there anything specific you and your family should prepare for regarding the schedule? 
  • Go back-to-school shopping. This is a great way to boost excitement about the school year and help your child feel like they are more in control over the coming year and how it will turn out. Control, especially during this time, over education can help make you and your child’s lives easier this coming year.
    Have a virtual or socially distanced back to school party! Get your kids’ closest friends together for a virtual or socially distanced back to school party. This will help amp up the excitement and get everyone ready and thrilled for school!
  • Get a personally refillable water bottle. Not only is this a sanitary measure, but it’s great for the environment and your child’s health. Find a bottle your child loves and wants to carry around and drink from. 
  • Purchase a mask your child loves. Masks in school are new for all of us, but we know it’s important to help your kids become as comfortable with it as possible. Find a reusable mask that your child likes wearing. You might consider purchasing a neck gaiter or clear face shield so their friends and teachers can see their smiles!

This school year will be more different than any other, but we are going about it like any new adventure we might experience. At Delphi Boston, we are applying all safety precautions to ensure in-person classes are possible, safe and fun. Our staff are excited to see new and old faces this Fall and to help our students adjust back into life at Delphi Academy of Boston. Here’s to new experiences and adventures, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
