  • Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
    Residents are asked to familiarize themselves with the rules for the supervision of children in the Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities’ “Resident Guidelines and Community Handbook,” and the Combined Arms Center and Fort Leavenworth Supplement 1 to Army Regulation 608-18, “The Army Family Advocacy Program,” which includes a chapter covering the supervision of children and home alone policy.
    Parents are responsible for the conduct of their children and dependents at all times. They assume liability for any damages and resulting charges caused by the unlawful or negligent conduct of their children, dependents and any visitors to their home or common areas such as playgrounds and parks.
    Fort Leavenworth Directorate of Emergency Services enforces a curfew to mirror the curfew in the local community. For children under 16, the curfew is 10:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. For children 16 and 17, the curfew is 12:30-6 a.m.
    This policy applies to all residents and their family members and is designed to ensure that all family members and agencies cooperate to produce an environment that promotes the safety of the children living in Fort Leavenworth. The policy also applies to any civilian personnel who may be present during the performance of official child care duties and who are registered with the Child and Youth Services on the installation. At no time may children under age 18 be left home alone overnight.

    Utilities tip
    Turn lights off when not in use, even for short periods of time. Turning lights off and on uses less energy than if they are left on all the time.
