Coventry students who have parents serving in the armed forces may once again receive aid, thanks to a Coventry school department program in full swing once again for 2013.
School administrators have sent out notices to families of all students asking military families to identify themselves.
"As you may know Coventry has a very large number of families in various branches of the service," said Asst. Superintendent Mike Convery at the start of the program. "The largest is the National Guard. We are in the process of identifying all families with current active service members in the family."
The data collected will enable the district to organize a support network for military families during deployed and non-deployed times. Students who have parents, step parents, siblings, step siblings, grandparents or step grandparents active in the military can fill out the attached PDF form and return it to their school principal.
This includes but it not limited to National Guard, United States Army, Marines, Coast Guard, Navy or Reserve.
