1) If you haven't completed your back-to-school forms online yet, set aside time before Wednesday to log in to Skyward and do so (Skyward link on school web page).
2) If you think your family might qualify for free/reduced meals, visit https://www.schoolcafe.com/ or https://www.compass.state.pa.us/compass.web/Public/CMPHome to apply. Be sure to do this now because even if your family qualifies, you will be responsible for the cost of meals purchased before your application has been processed.
3) Double-check your school's dress code (student handbook on web page), note your bus pick-up and drop-off time and location (letter mailed home), write your student's name on valuable items that might be lost at school, trim excess strap on new backpacks to avoid being caught in bus or car doors, check out school menus and add money to lunch accounts if desired (www.schoolcafe.com or check payable to "Cafeteria Fund"), bring medications in labeled bottles with proper forms to School Nurse, review with your child what to do if they arrive home and you're not there, and very importantly, review the content of your child's backpack and coat pockets for anything that could be construed as a weapon. (Toy weapons, knives of any kind, etc. are considered weapons and are banned from the school premises.) Review with your student the types of items that are never allowed to go to school (student handbook on web page).
We hope you and your student/s have a wonderful first day of school!
