COVID-19 Update: Learn about what we have been doing to protect our customers and employees.

While school might look different across the country this fall, one thing each district has in common is that it won’t be operating quite like it has in years past.

Whether you’ll be home schooling full time, leading your child through virtual lessons part time or simply shepherding them through homework this school year, having an at-home classroom set up can help your child focus and feel successful.

The idea of setting up an at-home classroom might feel a little overwhelming, especially if you’ve never done it before, but, in reality there’s only a short list of things you need to set up a successful at home work space.

Check out the list of essentials below!

A desk or workspace

If you have an office or playroom that can accommodate a desk or work table, it can be helpful to clear out a corner of the room and designate it as a “school space.”

If you don’t though, your dining room table or kitchen counter will work just fine!

To make a desk or workspace workable you’ll simply need somewhere flat that your child can spread their materials out on- ideally somewhere that you can also pull up a chair to when you need to play a more hands-on role in your child’s assignments. 

Comfortable seating

Along with a large, flat surface to work on, kids need a comfortable place to sit while they work. If you don’t already have a chair that your child likes and that will work with your workspace, consider letting your child pick a new one for the year to come.

A way to organize your materials

One  of the toughest parts of working or schooling at home can be staying organized. In order to help your child stay on track with their school work you’ll need to develop a system for organizing both their work and their materials.

When it comes to organizing their work, your method can be as simple as designating a binder or folder for each subject.

When it comes to materials, you can purchase a small desk organizer and stock it with paper, pencils, pens and other essentials or, if you’ll be using a more communal space for learning (like the dining room table or kitchen counter) and will need to be able to pick up and move your materials, you can put together a small, portable box of the same supplies that can move with your child. 

Somewhere to spread out 

In addition to having a formal space to work, it can also be helpful to designate another spot in your house for when your child will be working on more relaxed assignments such as reading or viewing online content. Consider creating a comfortable space in their room with a beanbag or butterfly chair or letting them spread out on the couch!

While you’re getting all this set up, don’t forget to relax yourself! Read our quick post on how you can do that today and going forward!

 

While school might look a little different this year, there’s a lot that parents can do to help their child have a successful academic year! By setting up a simple workspace for your child you’ll be preparing them for success with at home learning!

  • How do the bags work?

    We use colored bags to differentiate services and make it easy for you to let us know what services you need. Set the bags out separately on your scheduled pickup day, and make sure they’re fully closed for transit to our facility. Please note that any overflow will be transferred into another 2ULaundry bag at the time of pickup and billed separately.

  • Can I request additional bags?

    Yes, to ensure your cleaning preferences are met, please place items in the correct bag for that service.

    If you do not have the correct bags or enough bags for your upcoming pickup, please contact Customer Care or request the additional bag through your Online Account. We’ll deliver one to your location free of charge. If we’re unable to deliver an additional bag in advance of your pickup, simply leave the items in a personal bag labeled with your name and the requested service(s).

  • How do I schedule a pickup?

    Your first pickup will be scheduled during the signup process.

    The easiest way to schedule additional pickups and modify an existing pickup schedule is through our mobile app, which you can download here.

    Not quite sure about the app? You can also schedule your next pickup by texting “PICKUP” to 588-15. We will send you a personalized scheduling calendar to easily schedule a pickup without logging in to your Account.

    For additional scheduling options, you can always contact Customer Care with your preferred date or schedule pickups through your Account online at www.2ULaundry.com.

    A few things to note: When using the App or Online Account, pickup requests, cleaning notes, and location updates, must be made by midnight the night before pickup. Our Customer Care Team can accommodate same-day requests up until 7am the morning of the requested pickup.

    Customers have the option to schedule one-time pickups on an as-needed basis or recurring weekly schedules for more consistent service. You will always receive a reminder text the night before your pickup, giving you the option to cancel or reschedule your pickup if needed. Please make sure the primary phone number on your account receives texts!
