- Frequently Asked Questions
1. My child is on medication; can he/she bring the medication with him/her to a CYS Services facility or activity?
It depends on the medication. Some medications need to be specifically approved and some are not allowed (such as over-the-counter meds), while rescue meds must be accompanied by a Medical Action Plan. But don't worry, at the time of registration all children complete a Health Screening Tool which will begin the Multi-Disciplinary Inclusion Action Team process which will determine what accommodations your child will require while using CYSS Services.
2. What happens if there is an unplanned school closure?
Anytime the schools are closed, CYS Services part-day programs will not take place. If there is a delayed school opening due to inclement weather, the Child Development Center and School Age Center will both open at 7:30 a.m. per the USAG Rheinland-Pfalz Inclement Weather Policy.
3. How do I register my child for a school on a different installation than my home installation?
For information on school registration, contact the School Liaison Officer at Commercial +49 (0)6783-6-6968.

Go to the School Liaison Officer - SLO Facility page on our website for information on how the School Liaison Officer can assist with school transitions.

9. How do I decide which school on which installation to send my child to if there are multiple in my area?
