Before school starts you should check out the campus. Go onto the school website and see when the office is open. Call the office and ask if you and your child can come and see the campus. Many kids feel more at ease on the first day of school if they have at least walked around the campus prior to the first day of school. You may be pleasantly surprised to find that they have an event before school starts for this very purpose. Many elementary schools have some sort of Meet Your Teacher event before the first day of school.
