Red Flag Warning goes into effect at Noon and lasts until 8pm. Please, no outdoor burning or use of flammable materials. Head to the "Weather" Tab for more information on the forecast.
Schools in and around Fort Carson will continue to offer support groups and special activities for students whose parents are set to return to Iraq.
At least three school districts took steps to help children cope with last year's deployment. About seven-thousand troops will be deployed to Iraq starting in October, with most expected to remain for a year.
Officials aren't sure how this deployment will be different, with recently reunited families separated again. Fort Carson's commander recently visited the districts to talk about the upcoming deployments and how children might react to them.
