April 9, 2021

What a year this has been, with all the protocols we’ve put in place to mitigate the health risks presented by the global pandemic during this school year. 
We are so proud of our cadets. They have followed the rules, even though it hasn't been very fun, and our campus has been safer this year because of it. Our Infirmary has seen far fewer cases of flu and colds than in past years, and I'm sure it is because our cadets have been washing their hands and wearing their masks.
Your boys have done well. They deserve our praise and appreciation.
As we get closer to the end of the school year, we are looking to make some improvements to campus life towards the end of April. Below you will find some exciting updates to our policies this year on day passes, parades, and spectator attendance at campus events.
