So, hopefully, everyone is settled in and school is going well. . .are you ready for weather? Tornado, ice storms and such, oh my! Please think about what your child might need if caught overnight at school or daycare. Pretty sure we’ve all seen that it can happen. What about a mini-emergency kit (maybe a quart or gallon ziplock bag) with a granola bar or other food, a foil blanket, a flashlight, maybe an activity like a card game, etc.that stays in the backpack? What would make life easier for him/her and ease your heart a little in such a situation? Try the handy disaster checklists available at SaveTheChildren.org.
