We are still providing counseling services for active-duty families through the Military & Life Family Counselors, Fleet and Family Support Center and Military OneSource. The installation has resources on Tutoring, Digital Libraries, Life Skills, Financial, Legal and more.
We recently began a Facebook group for military families. www.facebook.com/groups/nbplslo We share community and military resources, events and information on all this education, Pt Loma Cluster, Mission Bay Cluster, Kearny Cluster and La Jolla Cluster with our SD military families.
Recently, “Anchored4Life” announced a new e-learning series of live webinars focusing on A4L’s 10 core topics. Due to COVID-19, A4L created the new webinar series and it is now FREE and open to all military families. To view their upcoming webinar topics, please visit: https://anchored4life.com/e-learning-series/. Some upcoming topics include: moving, making friends, bullying, grief, divorce and more. Please share with teachers, families and anyone you believe will benefit from these sessions.
Lastly, we like to address the DoD Stop Movement order that is in place for service members of all DoD service branches and federal civilian personnel. This order restricts travel, moving to new installations/duty stations and other general location movements. It was in effect in March with the initial intention of it being lifted by May. It recently got extended until 30 JUN 2020. It seems as though restrictions are beginning to loosen up and some families will be allowed to continue on their normal PCS track. As the installation School Liaison Officer, we will continue to work closely with our Fleet and Family Support Center’s Relocation and Military Personnel offices to ensure families maintain continuity of their education if their move occurs while the school year is in session.
For your situational awareness, we have shared another article. The second article shares information that may impact BOY enrollment numbers for SY 2020-2021. Since this is a DoD-wide order, there is no way for my office to currently track where these families are in the process of moving to and what area schools will be impacted the most. I will standby and communicate any developments if I learn differently.
As always, please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
