Back to School: Tips, kits and a poem

B2S salad fmt

Los Altos teachers are readying their rooms this week for the coming onslaught of students, and parents are digging back out lunch boxes and pencil cases (do we still use those?) And here in the newsroom, Town Crier writers offered a slate of back-to-school resources this week for local readers:

Learn about the history behind Los Altos' school lunch programs – plus tips from parents

Mountain View's "Nurse Barb" offers health tips for students starting out in college, with a special focus on starting the parent/child conversations that can be awkward but essential

Hollis Bischoff starts off a new year of college-readiness with a column on when and why to look beyond the UC system for local students

Ana Homayoun has organizational strategies that minimize the sweat and stress of back-to-school adjustment

And you'll find more, all in the Town Crier's Back to School section, on newsstands this week.
