  • Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
    School is nearly out for the summer, days are getting longer and children are playing outside. 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 Command Policy 21-10, “Supervision of Children and Home Alone Policy Guidelines.”
    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 ages 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.
    For more information about the “Resident Guidelines and Community Handbook,” contact the FLFHC office at (913) 682-6300. Handbooks can be downloaded at www.ftleavenworth-familyhousing.com or obtained from the FLFHC office at 220 Hancock Ave.
    Resident survey
    Every year, residents of FLFHC homes are given the opportunity to participate in the Army’s resident satisfaction survey to let the Army know their opinion of housing here, as well as identify what FLFHC is doing well and where improvement is needed.
    The survey was e-mailed to all residents April 23.
    FLFHC has already awarded 16 families with $25 restaurant gift cards.
    On May 22, FLFHC will be giving out more prizes, including restaurant gift cards, robotic vacuums and family night out packages to residents who have answered the survey. The grand prize will be $500 off one month of rent. The sooner residents complete the survey, the more chances they have to win.
    Survey answers are anonymous, but FLFHC is notified about who has completed the survey.
    Fun Friday
    Celebrate the end of the schoolyear and the beginning of summer from noon to 1 p.m. May 24 with hot dogs on the patio at the FLFHC Community Center, 220 Hancock Ave.

    Utilities tip
    Reduce the heat. Begin cooking on a higher heat setting until liquid begins to boil. Then, lower the temperature and simmer the food until fully cooked. A fast boil doesn’t cook faster than a slow boil, but it does use more energy.
    Watch for announcements on Facebook, followed by a One-Call Now e-mail message with details. Visit www.ftleavenworthfamilyhousing.com for downloadable forms and information.
