Back to School

At the start of September, vacation towns are suddenly vacant and the air becomes slightly chilled. All is quiet… beaches seem ghostlier, and screams and shouts can be heard instead from the playground. School is back in session! Transitioning from summer mode to a new semester is never easy; but finally, the kids are back in their usual routine. But what happens when disruption occurs again, and this time, during the middle of the education calendar?

Many families actively make the choice to time their move “just right” by coordinating it during school vacation in the summer. This allows for children to avoid missing school during a move as well as going through the experience of saying goodbye to friends abruptly. However, oftentimes making the move in the middle of the year allows for better integration socially since the child will be placed in an environment filled with others within their age group immediately. The artofhappymoving.com article found here offers five various strategies that are helpful when it comes to children and teens of all ages who must move during their school year.
