The start of a new school year is fast approaching and can be challenging for families that are relocating. Moving to a new home and getting settled prior to the start of school is a goal for many families. Hazelwood Allied Moving and Storage can help your family with a smooth transition whether you’re moving across town or across the country.
Here are a few tips for a successful move before a new school year.
- Complete enrollment in the new school as well as any extra-curricular activities before you move. Have your child’s school records transferred directly to the new school if possible.
- Avoid packing birth certificates and medical and immunization records. Keep these important documents readily available.
- Get a supply list from the new school and do your back-to-school shopping before moving. Pack all school supplies together in one box for easy locating later. Hazelwood provides moving supplies such as boxes and packing tape to make this easier.
- Get a copy of the school guidelines or handbook in advance. Research school uniforms, locker use, lunch schedules, etc.
- Contact new counselors and teachers directly to introduce yourself and ask questions.
Organization, careful planning and doing as much as possible in advance are keys to helping your kids have a strong start in their new school. Leave your packing, storing and moving to the professionals. Hazelwood Allied Moving and Storage provides quality movers to help your family have a great school year.
From all of us at Hazelwood Allied, have a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend!
