Fort schools to hold registration

Aug-08-12-(Pic-5)

Parents may register their children at the Fort Huachuca Accommodation Schools from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. July 23 – 25. On Aug. 5 and 6, Smith Middle School personnel will only register students from 9 – 10 a.m.  There will be a special registration area for those who pre-registered in the spring. Parents will be required to update emergency contact information, obtain school handbooks, district information sheets, free/reduced lunch applications and class assignments for Myer School students only. Smith Middle School personnel will provide class and locker assignments on the first day of school.

When registering new students, parents must supply a birth certificate, shot records, and previous school records or the address to send for them. According to Arizona law, those students whose immunizations are not up-to-date will not be allowed to attend school until verification is provided to the school nurse.  School begins on Aug 7. Bus schedules will be available at registration, posted on the district website, https://www.fthuachuca.k12.az.us, published in “The Fort Huachuca Scout” and in the “Sierra Vista Herald.”

Reduce energy use to save money

To avoid high cost “peak demand” electric utility charges added to Fort Huachuca electric invoices this summer, officials ask fort personnel to conserve electricity use from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day when temperatures are high.  Adjust air conditioning set-points to 78 degrees while buildings are occupied, 85 degrees when empty. Turn air conditioning off in unoccupied buildings.  Unplug radios and other personal devices and appliances in government facilities. Turn off convenience lighting such as parking lot and exterior building lighting during daylight hours.  Reduce all interior lighting, especially when the building is not occupied and turn off lighting, where possible, in rooms with windows. Use task lighting such as computer monitors only, if feasible.

Army Secure Messaging Service is here. Connect with your primary care manager at Raymond W. Bliss Army Health Center online. This includes getting medication renewals, requesting lab or test results, or asking your provider a question. Ask primary care staff about secure messaging at your next visit and sign up. Beneficiaries must be enrolled at RWBAHC in order to participate. This service is not for acute or urgent care needs.

Fort Huachuca is committed to preserving the legacy of the African-American service men and women who served at Fort Huachuca during World War II. Fort
officials continue to explore all options for Building 66050 that balance the installation’s commitment to historic preservation with the budget contraints the post currently faces.  The Mountain View Officers Club is not listed on an Army disposal list as reported by some news outlets or the National Trust. To read more about the history of this building, refer to the most comprehensive historical study to date contracted by Fort Huachuca at http://acwc.sdp.sirsi.net/client/search/asset/1011642.

After completing the training, soldiers and civilians should print the certificates and present them to their training coordinator or unit prevention leader.

Volunteer to monitor hummingbirds

Hummingbird monitoring for the Hummingbird Monitoring Network at the Fort Huachuca Public Affairs Office is underway for the season.  It takes place every other Sunday at Building 21115 across from the gazebo on Brown Parade Field. The next monitoring session takes place on Sunday, 4:45 a.m., for five hours.  The group needs volunteers to help capture the birds and gather data. The birds are banded and released for future monitoring.
The 2013 schedule is posted on http://www.hummonnet.org/how_to_help/volunteer_ft_huachuca.html.
For more information, contact ldavis@theriver.com.
