Above Us Only Sky

Effective Speaking Cadets please check the announcements!

Happy new year to all.

By way of an update, we are at Level 5 of the Workplace Scalable Posture – the basis by which we decide how to assess risk and apply PHMs on our activities. As such, no in-person activities are to be conducted until directed
otherwise.
We will be doing our part by going virtual only for now in facilitating students at school – a higher priority than conducting in-person cadet activities at this time.

I understand that many of you will question why it is okay to return to schools but not cadets at this time.  As noted above, we are prioritizing the school environment over in person Cadet training and as many of our cadets
attend different schools. We do not want to expand their risk of exposure by increasing their bubbles.
Once the risk is deemed to have lowered to a 3 or less we will revisit approval for in person activities.
Our cadets safety and well being is our number one priority.
We do hope that cadets will continue to participate virtually and we will do our best to maintain an engaging online program.  The Senior cadets will be planning Tuesday evening activities on Zoom 6:30-8:00.
Please feel free to reach out should you have any questions.

Sincerely

Brenda Aumonier
