This is Brandi Silver, FCS agent with the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Burke Center. Our program today will help prepare your family for back to school!

In order to help your child have a safe, happy and productive year, get started on the right foot. Schools are open to address any concerns a parent or child might have. The best time to get help is one to two weeks before school opens. All staff in Burke County will return on Aug.16. Administrative personnel are currently on site Monday-Thursday from 8-3 and the first day of the 2023-2024 school year is August 28!

You can find enrollment information for pre-k through 12th grade on the Burke County Schools website.

Some students may be nervous about new situations, including changing to a new school, classroom or teacher. If your child seems nervous, ask them what they are worried about and help them problem-solve ways to master the new situation. All BCPS schools will have an open house prior to the 1st day. Be sure to check out your schools website or give them a call to see when open house will take place. This could help ease any fears your child may have about the 1st day of school!

Put a positive spin on going back to school. Remind your student about seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Ask your child what they are excited to learn about this year.

Consider starting your child on their school sleeping schedule a week or so ahead of time so that time change is not a factor on their first couple of days at school.

Have a great year and remember to teach kindness.
