Countdown to Check In
Wednesday, July 22, 2020
Our check-in days are approaching rapidly, and our anticipation is growing as we make ready to welome students back to campus!
Check-In Days - Mark Your Calendars!
Your check-in day depends on whether your cadet is coming back as a cadet leader, an athlete, a new student, or a returning cadet.
Monday, August 3 - Cadet Leadership Training
This first check-in date is for our cadets returning for Cadet Leadership Training by invitation of the Commandant. If you have questions about Cadet Leadership Training, please contact COL Tony Moss, Commandant, or our Deputy Commandant, GySgt Charlie Coulter, by email.
Friday, August 7 - Soccer Players
Our soccer players will arrive next, on August 7th. If you have questions as to whether or not you should report on this date, please contact our head soccer coach, MAJ Bob Burger, by email.
Monday, August 10 - New Cadets / Football Players
This will be our biggest check-in day as we welcome our NEW cadets to campus, as well as our high school and postgraduate football players. Football players who have questions about checking in on that day should contact either our head prep football coach, CPT Mark Shuman, or our head postgraduate football coach, MAJ Frank Arritt.
Tuesday, August 11 - Returning Cadets
Cadets who were enrolled in the 2019-2020 academic year will return to campus on our final check-in day of the new year.
- In yesterday's Daily Update, we gave you a list of steps that must be completed prior to check-in. I recommend that you review that list, because in the next few days we will be giving you more detailed information about HOW to complete each step in these daily updates.
- It is easy to review past emails from our Countdown to Check-In Daily Updates whenever you wish. Just go to forkunion.com/countdown and you will find an archive of these emails, in order from newest to oldest.
- In the 14 days prior to your check-in date, we strongly recommend and request that students be especially careful to prevent possible exposure to COVID-19. Please follow social distance guidelines, wear a mask or cloth face covering when recommended, and avoid traveling in areas that are seeing increased infection rates.
