Support for Military Families
The FCPS Military Families webpage provides information for military families including guidance for the arrival or departure from Fairfax County and resources for military families.
To help make your transition easier, the Department of Defense provides School Liaison Officers who serve as the primary point of contact for PreK – 12th grade school-related matters. School Liaison Officers offer an array of services and resources to support students, parents, installation leadership, schools, and the surrounding community. They inform parents about local schools, graduation requirements, afterschool programs, homeschooling and much more. School Liaison Officers are located at each installation to help address common education challenges of military families. Contact a Fort Belvoir School Liaison for assistance or use the Military Installation School Liaison Contacts webpage to find a School Liaison Officer in other communities.
The Military and Family Life Counseling Program supports service members, their families, and survivors with non-medical counseling worldwide. Ms. LaMaya Middleton is the Child and Youth Military and Family Life Counselor (MFLC) at Island Creek Elementary. Her focus is to provide confidential, short-term, situational problem-solving counseling services to our military-connected students and their families. You can contact Ms. Middleton at [email protected].
