Deployment can be an exceptionally difficult time for familes, and Cheney Public Schools is committed to providing as much support as possible during times of stress or separation. We strive for our schools to be a place of stability, where a regular routine and the predictability of classroom life can provide an anchor for students and families during the challenges of deployment. We know that deployment and the resulting disruptions of daily life can result in changes in psychological equilibrium and individual behavior and coping skills, and may interfere with the ability of students and staff to focus on learning.
With that in mind, please inform your child's school or the district office prior to a deployment in the family so our educators can be aware of the circumstances and can provide and additional support your student may need.
Additionally, our schools are home to Cheney Public Schools' comprehensive counseling and guidance programs, which include responsive services that may help students during this difficult time. All students have the right to access Cheney School District's comprehensive counseling and guidance program.
