Ds starts kindergarten tomorrow. Wasnt given anything to put on his book bag to let the older kids escort kids to their classrooms and vica versa. They didnt say how. Im so nervous. Hes not going to know where to go. The school is big. I asked and the teacher ignored me repeatedly.

In our school, on the first day, they take the kindergarteners off the bus first, and escort them to their rooms before the rest of the kids get off the bus.

It's my understanding, that most schools follow a similar procedure.

But how would they know which class they go to with no tags or anything on their bags?

Maybe they'll have signs on the doors with the teacher's name and the kids line up there. That's how they did it last year for my DD's school.

Teachers have lists.

Big hugs, mama. I'm sure everything will be okay. I know it's hard, especially when it is your oldest child. It's all new to you. The teachers and staff at the school know what they are doing.

That will be hard. He doesnt know his last name. His last name is long and hard for him to pronounce (speech issues) and he wont recognize it on paper. I cant gwt him to say the letters right. Its very fusterating. Like instead of saying three he says dr-e.

Maybe label the inside or back side of his backpack with his full name just in case and let him know it is there if he is asked.

I did that. Just sent him off to school. Put his first and last name, teachers name, room number and grade.
