Parents will soon be able to breathe a sigh of relief when they send their children back to school. But before that first day of school starts, parents have to go through the fuss of back-to-school shopping.

To make it easier for parents, local schools have used a new tool to help spread class item lists for parents on www.teacherlists.com, according to a press release from the website.

“With just two clicks, parents can find their child’s exact supply list and then click right over to pre-filled shopping carts on Target, Walmart, Office Depot, Amazon or Staples to purchase their list and have it shipped right to their home,” the press release states. “Target, Walmart, Office Depot and Staples also offer in-store pick-up. Super easy, super convenient.”

The site already includes lists for;

•Cedar Valley Elementary, Covington

•Covington Elementary, Covington

•Crestwood Elementary, Covington

•Grass Lake Elementary, Covington

•Jenkins Creek Elementary, Covington

“For decades, the supply list process has been a frustration for parents,” TeacherLists CEO Charles Field states in the press release. “Where to find the lists? When are they available? Forgetting the list on the counter at home. Hunting the aisles for the specific items their teacher has requested. All of those issues are solved with TeacherLists.”

For more details or to view the list visit www.teacherlists.com/parents.
