6 Tips for getting ready to go back to school!


Summer 2023 is coming to an end and soon the kids will be heading back to school.


Seeing as there is always a lot of preparation involved in getting ready for back to school, we thought it may be helpful to share these 6 tips for getting ready for the busy weeks ahead:

  1. Practice a morning routine, including getting back to a regular sleep schedule. This always proves to be a challenge for our family with too many late summer nights!
  2. Grab school supplies and any necessary new clothes (is it just me, or do kids seem to grow more over the summer than the rest of the year?).
  3. Choose extracurricular activities for the kids to take part in (many sports and activities will soon be back in full swing).
  4. Designate a space in your home where the kids can have quiet time to work on school or projects. This will be especially important for those families who have chosen homeschooling or online learning.
  5. Find a spot to store backpacks, lunch boxes, and all.of.the.things!
  6. Visit the school for orientation (if applicable) so the kids are familiar with their classroom and teacher.

For those of you with older children who may be studying away from home, most property Insurers will extend a certain amount of coverage from your homeowner’s policy to cover your child’s belongings. Please contact your Broker to learn more!

And this one is for the teachers out there. This comic seems even more relevant these past couple of years…

We support you and thank you for everything that you do for our children!



We would like to wish all of the students a wonderful first day back for the start of the 2023-2024 school year!
