Back to School! New Orleans Resources for Moving, Start Dates, and School Supplies

Back to school is sort of the “spring cleaning” of the summer – a chance to get organized, regroup, and start the fall on a fresh note. For students, we’ve collected a list of pertinent school supplies and start dates for area schools below. We also know that the beginning of the school year is often a time when college students move into new apartments, which is why we’re including top tips from our Moving Checklist. Check out the full list here! Is it your first apartment? We have all the resources you need with our First Apartment Essentials Checklist.

And remember – tax-free shopping happens this Friday and Saturday, so stock up on back-to-school items all over town during this statewide tax holiday.
