If you’re returning to your current school after summer break, a score of tasks are on the horizon. As if final exams and report cards were not enough, there’s a zillion things that need to be done prior to departure. Between completing tedious classroom inventories, equipment/materials return and preparing your room for potential maintenance crews, the last days of the school year can be pandemonium, a struggle even for the most organized of us all!
To complicate matters, your school may not offer housing allowances for the summer months, prompting you to give up your home to save money. This, of course, leaves the additional task of securely storing home and personal items until your return. If you have pets who are not joining you on vacation, the task can be even more daunting.
Are you moving on to a new school? Then you have an especially difficult task ahead. In addition to the business of leaving your “old” school, you must arrange for shipping of personal belongings, closeout cell phone/internet/utility accounts, collect deposits, sell the car and furniture, and, perhaps hardest of all, say good-bye to dear friends. The little details of leaving can be overwhelming and extremely time-consuming.
There’s far more involved in leaving a school for the summer break, or forever, than merely locking the door. Join us on the ISR Returning or Moving On Blog to share your Must Do list, compare experiences, ask questions and offer advice. Go to Blog
