We hope this checklist helps you get the most out of your back-to-school season. We know it can be overwhelming, so let us help! We’ve created this handy checklist to help make sure all areas are covered and organized for success this year – don’t forget about us when planning! (We are open 7 days a week, 9 am-9 pm.)
- Eye check:
August is Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month with the National Eye Institute & Contact Lens Health Week (Aug. 19–23) with the CDC. It is critical for children to have regular screenings and exams to ensure they have healthy eyesight for a foundation for good vision. Research has shown a strong connection between good eyesight and successful academic performance in school-aged kids.
- Sports physicals:
The convenience of getting a sports physical without an appointment is one that has made Next Level so popular among parents. Whether your child is getting ready for sports, school, or camp, a physical is the first step in ensuring they’re healthy and ready for any activity. With no appointment needed, sports physicals from Next Level couldn’t be easier. If you don’t have your school’s physical form, click here to access sports physical forms for most Houston school districts. Bring the form with you to the clinic and we’ll take care of the rest!
- Current immunizations:
Make sure your children are up-to-date on their shots before starting school this fall. The list of required immunizations for incoming students can be found here, and it’s important that you have them all! Although Next Level does not provide all immunizations, contact your pediatrician’s office to schedule your immunizations. If you need any other services, please view the list of services we provide here.
- Stock up on other important supplies:
1. One or two spare masks
3. Hand sanitizer
4. Hair ties, headbands, or other fasteners
5. Reusable water bottle
The back-to-school season can be both exciting and overwhelming. We hope this checklist helps you get the most out of the season. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re always here to help! Have a great school year!
