It’s that time of year – back to school. Your kids have backpacks stocked with school supplies, and they are ready to take on another year! With the new school year comes all the paperwork. Parents, you know what we are talking about. This is the time of year when you fill out multiple emergency contact forms and make sure the school has all the important information in case of an emergency.
