On Sunday night we welcomed some new au pairs to our cluster and rekindled some old friendships after the long summer months. We enjoyed a beautiful crisp evening outdoors as we ate pizza and discussed back to school safety tips. http://www.rd.com/advice/parenting/back-to-school-safety-tips/2/.
Also, just in time for back to school, Au Pair in America has put together a handy note for au pairs and host parents. With busy schedules and last minute changes, something simple like writing a note for the school can get lost in the mix. Or maybe your au pair has just arrived and she’s not quite sure yet how to notify the school of any pick up/drop off changes. That’s why we put together this useful note! Print off a few, and you’ll be set for the year. It’s blank so all you need to do is fill in the appropriate information: date, child’s name, teacher, grade and include a parent’s signature. It can be used to grant permission, for absences, late arrivals or early dismissals, and has a comment section to include any other pertinent information. Print off the note here (it’s a pdf file) and make your life a little easier! http://www.aupairinamerica.com/fp/school_note.pdf
