Military Connected Family Resources

Greetings Muraoka Military Families,

Each year we celebrate Veteran’s day with a school-wide parade. Although we do not get to have our parade this year, we have received many photos celebrating our Active Duty and Veteran family members!

On days like today we remember the sacrifices our service men and women make on a daily basis to ensure our country is protected. With so many of our families Military connected, we want to say THANK YOU.  We recognize and appreciate your service and the impact it can have on your family.  You are our heroes, and we honor you on this day! Please check out our video montage here:

She will be full time supporting our school this year!

MFLC Information

We are pleased to announce this temporary capability to provide continuity of care for the service members at your school.  These services include video and telephonic (VTC) non-medical counseling in areas where face-to-face support is restricted due to COVID-19. Services available are listed below:

Support for Children and Youth:  

  • Individual video non-medical counseling sessions for minors age 13 to 17 (parent or guardian must be available at the start of each video session to give parental consent and provide line of sight requirements during the session)
  • Family video non-medical counseling for minors 6 to 12 years of age (parent or guardian must attend each session)
  • Special events will be offered throughout the school day, including Meet the MFLC, Lunch Bunch, and special non-medical counseling groups.

Diana Caughlin is now available to provide video and telephonic non-medical counseling support.  They can be reached at (619) 346-3318 to establish a telephonic or video non-medical counseling appointment.

The counseling sessions will be conducted by the Magellan MFLC Zoom video conferencing application. The Zoom application meets all federal privacy regulations, and each counselor has a Magellan provided smartphone which is only used for business purposes. The option to record the session has been disabled from Zoom and Magellan’s MFLC communication policies prohibits recording of telephonic non-medical counseling services.

Scheduling a counseling session is simple and all you need to do is contact the MFLC at their MFLC phone number: Diana Caughlin: (619) 346-3318.

We hope that you will find helpful the MFLC support during these difficult times.
