The Military and Family Life Counseling (MFLC) Program is here for you during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can now connect with a MFLC through video teleconferencing services.

School Moves During a Pandemic

This time of the year would normally be busy with PCS moves and school withdrawal or registration questions. With the DoD Stop Movement Order, families are now left waiting and wondering. Distance learning adds to the uncertainty of school moves. Rest assured, your Navy School Liaison Officer (SLO) is here to assist you. Wherever you PCS, the nearest School Liaison from any branch of service can help you make a smooth transition to the new school. Before you go, know your SLO! Installation SLO info is located at the top of this newsletter. See the DoDEA Partnerships page to find the school liaison at or nearest your new location.

Other Educational Resources

Are you looking for supplemental resources for your child’s learning? Do you need resources for continued learning during summer break? Child and Youth Education Services has created a list of free educational resources. There is a list for elementary (Kindergarten – 5th grade) and secondary (6th – 12th grade). You can also check your child’s school district website for additional resources. Most districts have created resource lists for families. Check Navy CYP on Facebook for even more resources and activities for the whole family.
