To hear someone say, “Purple up!” at Travis Unified campus today will not be odd or unexpected.
At district schools, including two in Vacaville, and across the nation, people will be encouraged to wear purple clothing items or accessories to show support for military children.
April is the Month of the Military Child, Sylvia Crowder, the Travis Air Force Base liaison, reminded the governing board during their regular monthly meeting Tuesday in the Travis Education Center.
In her remarks to trustees, she noted that several hundred service members are currently deployed from the sprawling military base south of Vacaville.
“It is important to emphasize and recognize the role that military children play while their service member parents are serving the nation,” Superintendent Kate Wren Gavlak wrote in a press release issued last week.
