You seem very prepared. Good luck to L. and to you and S. I think this will be a great year for L. :-)

Thank you, Christine--I want all the optimistic and positive vibes we can get!

I remembered the teacher letter at midnight the day before meet-the-teacher. But I went ahead and did it--our IEP team is in flux and I wasn't sure if they were able to exert their influence this year in E.'s placement.

I hope you're able to get the schedule ahead of time. I ran into a number of students who were doing a dry run of their schedule, and that seems like such a good idea.

We're still waiting for a call back from the school. But teachers aren't officially "back" there until tomorrow. We'll be badgering them in true style if we don't hear back tomorrow!

If I could add my two cents, we had our kids buy lunch for the first week so they would learn how to do it with all the other kids. After that, they could buy or bring lunch from home.

Good luck to your child and you.

Thank you for your comment! I'm hoping that the school will make additional effort to help our son (and all the other new 6th graders) transition well. But you'er right--the more practice they have with interacting with peers and getting a sense of the social world of MS, the easier the transition should be.
