756 CO’s Update - 22 Aug

As September approaches I wanted to bring both parents and cadets up to speed on some of the many things going on in the background:

  1. We have received a task order (145 pages!) on the resumption of training, and the staff and I are reviewing it to ensure we are in compliance and able to safely resume training. 
  2. Training will resume gradually, in a staged manner, with both a virtual and in-person component, similar to the local school boards.  
  3. Safety of the cadets and staff is paramount, and all precautions will be taken to insure no transmission of the virus when in-person training resumes. 
  4. There is a certain amount of leniency in the upcoming training year to accommodate cadets that cannot fully participate in either virtual or in-person activities.  
  5. Training will resume virtually in mid-late Sep, and tentatively on the first Monday in Oct in-person.
  6. The staff is using the time in August and September to prepare for both virtual and in-person training to resume. 
  7. Training will be streamlined to focus on the higher priority courses, as determined at a national level by Cadets Canada. 
  8. Although this year will look drastically different to previous years, our focus remains to provide unique, challenging, and rewarding experiences and training to today’s youth and tomorrow’s leaders, in a safe environment. 
  9. More information to follow shortly, including a revised squadron calendar. 

As always, parents can contact me if they have questions at the email/phone below. Cadets, please contact WO2 Everett for your questions. 

Regards,
