• Helpful Hints for School Personnel
     
    Student Voice
    Set up a Military Kids group for students to discuss joys/concerns of being a Military kid. Even if the student doesn't want to join, let them know you are there to talk to.
     
    Stay Connected
    If student does not have internet at home, set up a Skype and/or email account, and let the student Skype/email their deployed loved one from school
     
    Communication Matters
    Keep in contact with the student's teacher. 
     
    Know the Cycle of Deployment
    Pre-deployment, Deployment, and Post deployment. Each are very different and families are on an emotional roller coaster with each phase.  
     
    Supporting Siblings
    Oldest siblings will try to "shoulder" things for the family when parent is deployed. They need extra TLC and someone to talk to.
