It is coming upon us again. The beginning of another school year. For all of us, the traffic patterns will change, school zones will be active for parts of the days, school buses will be seen on our commutes around town, we’ll see the cheery faces of the crossing guards and see children walking and biking to school.
For parents there will be an influx of communications from your children’s schools. School sports practices may have already begun. For me and my friends, there are new events in our calendars like meet-the-teacher, freshman orientation, sports physicals, and computer pick-ups. There are associated activities like school shopping, finding the bus top, navigating new schools, and coordinating carpooling.
