Be Prepared To Go Back To School

Even though summer is still in full force, back-to-school season is fast approaching and will be here before you know it. That means it's time to start filling out your kid's schedule, getting supplies, buying back-to-school clothes, and preparing for the first day of classes. The first day of school puts a lot of pressure on kids, and a good impression on the first day is crucial. It sets the tone for the rest of the year; if you don't have the right supplies, you might set an undesirable tone for the year.

Luckily we've got the right supplies to ensure your child's first day of school goes swimmingly. We have everything you need, from luggage tags to lanyards and badge holders, to keep your items easily identifiable in a crowded hallway, cafeteria, or classroom. Don't let anything slow you or your child down when school starts up again!

Keep your child's ID safe and close with a standard ID badge holder.

Most schools require their students to always keep their school IDs on them. These IDs are necessary to gain access to the lunch line, borrow a book from the library, enter the school, and for proper identification and safety within the vicinity. To guarantee that your child's school ID does not get lost in the shuffle, consider keeping it attached by our standard ID badge holder. Our clear vinyl badge holder is light and durable and keeps your child's ID safe and clean. ID badges can be easily slipped in through the top of the badge holder and stay in place throughout the day, no matter how hectic the day gets. The clear vinyl front allows your child's ID to be identified by teachers, staff, and electronic devices for scanning. The badge holder has a slot and chain holes to quickly secure it to your lanyard, backpack, etc. Our badge holders are an inexpensive tool for your child to stay prepared during the school year.


Stay safe and comfortable with adjustable breakaway lanyards.

Whether in kindergarten or high school, breakaway lanyards are a must. They ensure that your kid's ID badge stays securely attached while guaranteeing your child's safety. Children love adventure and roughhousing, but sometimes it can go too far and put them in danger. Using breakaway adjustable lanyards instead of standard lanyards can protect your child from getting caught in the school bus, playground equipment, or being pulled by another child. Breakaway lanyards are adjustable to fit any size for comfort and come in various colors and designs to fit your child's unique personality. They are also easy to clean if they get dirty on field trips or recess.


Use luggage tags to keep track of your child's backpack.

Luggage tags are a great way to identify your child's bag—especially those younger ones with more important priorities than keeping up with their bag. Young children are still learning responsibility and how to keep track of their items, and they are prone to losing their backpacks stuffed with important school items. One easy way to avoid a lost school bag is to attach a plastic luggage tag to it. Our luggage tags have spaces to put your or your child's name, address, phone number, and email address. You can also attach our luggage tags to your kid's lunch pack, gym bag, etc. These tags come in various colors, so you can get one in your child's favorite color!


Although you and your child still have plenty of time to enjoy the rest of summer break, it's never too early to prepare to return to school. Let us help you get everything you need to ensure your child's first school day is successful. Head to the Specialist ID website to get your back-to-school essentials.
