Hey there friends! I hope you all are doing well? If you are like most families across America you are dealing with a lot when it comes to back to school. We are facing things we never dreamed we would see in our lifetimes and it's scary. Our school year has been delayed and we are being offered options when it comes to returning. 1) In-person learning - this will be face to face learning with adaptive measures. 2) Distance learning - This will be where you stay home but still follow the curriculum that is being done at the normal school from home. The child will also be allowed to participate in normal school sports activities. 3) Home school - This is where you will not following the schools' mandates and will learn via a 3rd party.

I think we can all agree that no matter what your family decides, we are all trying to do what is best for our families. Covid-19 has effected the world and the rules seem to be changing from week to week. This school year we will have a child attending a vocational school, high school, and middle school. The kids back to school list will very this year because of what they have going on. This is a list of some things we came up with as must-haves for back to school.

ROKiT iO Pro 3D Phone

When our oldest son started middle school we decided it was important to have a phone to stay in contact.
