    Many students are heading back to school in the next few weeks, and with all the open houses, after school activity sign ups, and clothes and school supplies shopping, your schedule is already getting hectic.

    Need some Monday Motivation to help ease that overwhelming feeling you've got trying to creep in? Here are some quick-and-easy resources you can share with your child's teachers and administrators to help make sure your sickle cell warrior starts the school year off right:

    1. Present your child's teacher with this tip sheet from the CDC to help him or her have a better understanding of what sickle cell is and how she can support your child's needs throughout the year.

    2. Introduce this planning sheet as a supplement to your child's 504 plan. It's filled with a list of "reasonable accommodations" that can assist your child's teacher in the classroom setting.

    3. Make the entire school staff aware of your child's needs by setting up a meeting with your student's teachers and the administrative staff, and sharing this school policy guide to sickle cell and thalassaemia. It goes into even more detail than the tip sheet and gives information about preventable and supportive measures that schools can implement in a simple, understandable way.
