My oldest had a horrible experience with bullying last year so he's apprehensive about this year because he's afraid it'll happen again. I've talked to him about it and reassured him that it won't be happening again. My other school aged kid is different. He doesn't handle changes and new social situations well. He's nervous about a new teacher, new kids etc. I've reassured him that it'll be ok and he has his IEP in place so his Special Ed teacher can step in if he needs.

My oldest loves school and never had anxiety. My other two are too young still.

Thankfully it takes an act of congress to change elementary schools where I live. Well moving out of the zone you are assigned to. We go from elementary to middle.... and because everyone is going at once..... the kids aren't phased.
