William D Slider Middle School welcomes military families to the Stallion Community! On our campus we strive to ensure our military-connected students feel supported. Throughout the 2020-2021 school year, we will hold monthly Military Family Nights as well as Military Kid Club meetings. Incoming military students may also be assigned a student Ambassador to provide them with a tour of campus, join them for lunch, and answer any questions to help introduce them to the school community and make them feel at home. If you are an incoming military family, please contact our Campus Military Liaison for more information about this and other resources and programs we have available to best assist you in your transition.

Military & Family Life Counseling (MFLC) Program
The Military and Family Life Counseling Program supports service members, their families and survivors with non-medical counseling worldwide. Trained to work with the military community, military and family life counselors deliver valuable face-to-face counseling services, briefings and presentations to the military community both on and off the installation. Military and family life counseling services are available to active-duty service members and their family members, National Guard and reserve service members (regardless of activation status) and their family members, designated Department of Defense expeditionary civilians and their family members, and survivors. Issues addressed include improving relationships at home and work, stress management, adjustment difficulties, parenting, and grief or loss. It does not address active suicidal or homicidal thoughts, sexual assault, child abuse, domestic violence, alcohol and substance abuse, or serious mental health conditions. Non-medical counselors can be trusted to keep your information private. However, they are required to report situations where you could be a danger to yourself or to others, situations involving domestic violence or violence against another person, child abuse or neglect, and any present or future illegal activity.
