Lt(N) Brandi Roberts
Do you want to stay informed and up-to-date with us, but don’t have regular access to Facebook?
To help during this unprecedented time, we’re asking all parents and cadets to give us their email addresses so that our CO, Lt(N) Roberts, can send you updates as they occur.
Please fill out the contact info form linked below, and share it with your friends who don’t have Facebook and are in our unit! Thank you!
Please take a moment to listen to or read this message from our commander (link) regarding the current directive for cadet activities between now and April 30.
For the most timely updates on which specific Nelson activities will or will not be taking place over the next few weeks, we encourage you to regularly consult the Nelson Calendar (link), and check our facebook page.
As always, if an event is taking place and you will be unable to attend for any reason, please remember to submit a leave request (link) so that your absence can be marked as excused. Excused absences do not affect the cadet attendance rates used to determine awards and appointments.
Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding.
The Marksmanship Competition scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled as a precaution.
No further information at this time. Thank you.
