The calendar has flipped - it's August! This is back to school month! Are you ready? That's kind of a loaded question because there is a lot that goes into getting our kids ready for school. School supplies, books and uniforms top that list.
Each school has its own requirements -- from public to private to Catholic -- where ever your child goes. And, it's important that we follow all the guidelines when it comes to uniforms. The good news is local stores are ready for us. They actually know what we need, and it's important that we get it right.
"We call it the blue book. It's got every school from Mobile County Public Schools to Saraland School System to Chickasaw School System -- even Washington County. All the public schools, we try to have their listing. And, then our private and catholic schools. Actually, it's very specific by grade and gender what the schools want the children to wear," explains Eileen Wishon, the co-owner of Zoghby's Uniforms.
That means as parents, we need to pay attention to what the uniform policy calls for. Uniforms can vary from grade to grade and school to school. We don't want our kids to get into a situation with a uniform problem that could have been avoided pretty easily!
There are some ways to personalize your child's uniform. Trends this year are going brighter and bolder for accessories. That includes things like backpacks, lunch boxes, pencil cases, water bottles, folders and hair bows. So, something to consider when you're picking up the extras for your children!
And, just a note Moms and Dads, we have heard that a number of schools have made some changes to their uniforms this school year. So, be sure to check before you buy! For more information on uniforms, check out these links for Zoghby's Uniforms , Mobile County Public Schools and Baldwin County Public Schools . If you have any specific questions, you can check with your child's school. And, most school websites have a detailed breakdown of the uniform policy.
