Dear Fort Sill Residents,
We have many new families that have joined us here at Fort Sill during the big PCS season. We would like to welcome each of you and thank you for allowing us to meet you and your family’s housing needs. One of the best things about military life is the opportunity to explore. There are several resources to help you get familiar with Lawton and the surrounding areas. The Fort Sill Corvias team has compiled a list of local spots based on our own experiences and feedback from our residents. Click here to learn more about the sites around Lawton/Fort Sill. Don’t forget to also check out Fort Sill MWR to see what is happening in your backyard.
It seems as though summer has just begun, when in fact it is almost over and school is back in session. As our communities continue to fill with soldiers and families, I would like to ask that all residents be on the alert for children on their way to and from school. To help ensure the safety of our children, please remember to pay attention to the posted speed limits in the neighborhoods.
Thank you for your service and for allowing us to serve your family.
Corvias Military Living would like to inform you that beginning September 2nd, Corvias offices will close at 5:00 pm Monday through Friday and remain closed Saturday - Sunday. Additionally, our offices will also be closed Monday, September 5th in observation of Labor Day. But don't worry, most Community Center amenities will still be available for you and all of our residents to enjoy.
The few exceptions include activities in the centers that require checking out of equipment (pool table, video game remotes, etc.) and amenities that are actually located inside the office area, such as computer labs or conference rooms. These amenities will only be available during our regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
We encourage residents to continue to take advantage of Community Center amenities such as fitness centers and the laundry facilities which are available via key fob, 5:00 am – 12:00 am, seven days a week. Pool hours will remain the same until season end on Labor Day.
The maintenance team will also continue to be available for after hour maintenance emergencies. You can reach them by calling your Community Office and following the prompts. Residents can also submit regular work orders any time via our website (residents should not submit emergency work orders online).
Thank you for your understanding during this transition and thank you for choosing Corvias Military Living for your home at Fort Sill. If you have any questions regarding this change, please contact your Community Office.
Come enjoy the pool for the last few days this summer! Labor Day will be the end of pool season for all Corvias community pools. The pools will be open from 12-8 pm on Labor Day, September 5 – weather permitting.
Towards the middle of September, 25 percent of Corvias Military Living residents will receive an electronic housing survey in their email boxes! This is a prime opportunity for you and your family to tell us how well we are doing in meeting your on-post housing needs.
The electronic survey will only take a few minutes, and by completing it, you are eligible for a drawing to win one of four $100 Visa gift cards from Corvias Military Living.
Congratulations to the winners from the August survey drawing: t
he Cifuentes family, the Horne family, the Mckay family and the Smith family.
At Corvias Military Living, we do our best to improve your quality of life and overall housing experience. To us, this means making your life easier and taking chores off your plate when we can. As part of this, Corvias Military Living provides commercial lawn mowing services at no additional charge. These seasonal services are provided by Munie Greencare, an established leader in the commercial lawn mowing business. During the growth season, mowing in your community will be completed bi-weekly to weekly as grass growth rates require.
Check your resident calendar online for your scheduled lawn care for the upcoming months. Please keep in mind, however, that inclement weather may require adjustments to your regular lawn mowing schedule. If you have questions about your lawn mowing services, please contact your Community Office.
How to Prepare Your Yard for Mowing:
- Remove toys, trash, patio furniture, grills and trampolines from all grassy areas on your lawn mowing day or the day before. Unprepared lawns will not be mowed.
- Remove pet waste from your yard. Crews will not mow lawns that contain pet waste.
- Remove decorative items such as solar lights, on your lawn mowing day. Crews will not trim around items that may be easily damaged.
- Place pets indoors on your lawn mowing day, to ensure their safety.
- Ensure that your backyard fence is unlocked to allow crews to access your yard. After lawn mowing has been completed, make sure your fence is closed before allowing your pet to re-enter your yard.
No mow option
We understand you may prefer to maintain your own lawn. If you do, please contact your Community Office, so we can provide your home with a special marker to display, and our lawn mowing crews will know to skip your lawn. If you choose to place your home on the no-mow list, you will be expected to cut and trim your lawn as often as—and at least to the standard of—our commercial lawn mowing service.
Service Members and their families are strong and face many adventures throughout their military career. Military life can also be stressful at times and some may start to feel isolated, overwhelmed, or angry when dealing with challenging situations. These reactions can be common responses to life events. However, these feelings may be signs of more serious conditions. People coping with challenges may feel like there is no escape from their symptoms, leading them to have thoughts of suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) – press ‘1’ for the Military Crisis Line or send a text to 838255. You can also visit http://www.militarycrisisline.net.
If you or someone you know is talking about suicide get them assistance immediately with these three steps – Ask, Care, Escort. Ask your loved one if they are thinking of killing themselves. Care for your loved one – actively listen to show understanding, remove any means that could be used for self-injury. Escort your loved one – never leave them alone! Escort them to their chain of command, a chaplain, a behavioral health professional, or primary care provider.
Do you know how much water a 4-minute shower uses? 20-40 gallons! Conserve water and take shorter showers or turn the faucet off between soaping and rinsing.
