Military Family Resources

Welcome to B. M. Williams Primary!

VDOE Purple Star logo
B.M. Williams Primary is a proud recipient of the VDOE Purple Star designation, 2021 award year.

We are so glad you are joining our community! At B. M. Williams Primary we are proud of our 200+ military connected students. We welcome our new students with a tour of the building and an introduction to new friends in their class. Every military student earns a brag tag for serving our country with their military family. We recognize Purple Up day in April each year. We have an annual military family night to help our military families connect with each other and resources in the community. The school counselors offer small groups for students struggling with adjustment to a parent being deployed. We are available to help your transition to our school be as smooth as possible. Please contact us and let us know how we can help.

This web page is designed to provide information to military families that are relocating to Chesapeake and have questions about the B.M. Williams Primary zone. Please visit our district military resources page dedicated to information for our military families to find important information relevant to all of the forty-seven schools in Chesapeake Public Schools.

Our school counselors are prepared and ready to assist military families wishing to enroll their students at B.M Williams Primary! In addition to our in-school Counselors, Chesapeake Public Schools has a School Liaison Officer who is available to assist incoming military families.
