What would you do?

We are moving out of state in September. School starts the 26th where I currently live. Should I let my kids go to school a few weeks before moving out of state and when we move obviously they'll be changing schools. Or do I keep my kids out of school till we move out of state?

When does it start where you are moving too?
If it starts after your move wait and let them start there. If it starts before, I'd let them start before.

 You put your children in school where you currently live, and then transfer them. When you move the new school will contact the old school, and verify missed days, grade level, grades, shot records, ect.

In most places, any days missed at the old school, will also count as missed attendance in the new school system. Most schools only allow for a week of missed attendance, with no doctors or legally accepted excuse, due to relocating to a new state. (Per SageAdvice)

Yes they need to start and then be transferred. Legally you could get in trouble if you dont. It could hurt the kids school wise as well.

Put them in school where you are and then move them, for one thing I couldnt think of anything more stressful than having kids at home while trying to pack and more importantly they will learn a lot in 2 weeks.

Should I warn the school we are leaving? I was thinking of getting the bare minimums on the school. I don't want to buy a years worth of supplies for three weeks.

Quoting Scarpetta71:
