2 Get your kids ready for the first day Your back-toschool prep list Are your kids prepared for the new school year? Are you? While kids need to prepare emotionally and mentally for getting into the back-to-school routine, parents need to get ready on many fronts too. Here’s a handy checklist of preparations to tackle before school starts. Health prep Help make sure your child stays healthy during the school year. Stay up to date on vaccinations. Immunizations can protect your child against serious childhood diseases. Check with the school to find out what vaccinations it requires. Arrange for a sports physical if your child plays sports. An exam can give you peace of mind that your kid can handle the physical demands asked of them in school sports and extracurricular activities. In fact, most sports require a physical for a medical eligibility form.
