Important Information Regarding Leave Requests

There are two passes in Orah (labeled as "Pass") for parents/guardians to request either a leave request or a day pass request. A day pass request will only give the option for a parent to select day pass. For a leave request, you have the option to pick a Regular, Special, Medical, College Visit, or Emergency Leave under the location option. 

The Commandant's Department is requesting that all parents submit their request at least 96 hours (4 days) prior to their requested departure for parent/guardian pickups only on regular weekend leaves. If a parent is requesting FUMA Transportation, we are requesting a 7-day notice, so that we can source their driver. If a cadet will miss class, we are requesting that the request be submitted 7 days in advance, as there needs to be approval from his teacher and the Academic Dean. 

Regular leave dates are listed on the School Calendar and begin on September 30–October 2. Day passes will also begin that weekend, starting Saturday, October 1. If a cadet takes a day pass on Saturday, they are not eligible to go on day pass on Sunday, and vice versa. 

If you are requesting a leave on any weekend that is not listed as a leave weekend, you will need to request a Special Leave (unless it is for a specific reason that is an available option, I.e., Medical, College Visit or Emergency). The Commandant's Department requests that parents provide any supporting information for these types of leave request to expedite the process, failure to do so will result in a delayed response. 

ADDITIONAL NOTE: Leave requests that have been approved are subject to change if their student receive demerits and is assigned tours on Extra Duty (ED). This will be communicated by the Company TAC Officer.
