Inclement Winter Weather Plan for ROTC Practices
In the case where sub-zero temperatures is the only hazard that delays the start of school we will have practice as regularly scheduled. This is because the cadets do not have to face the hazard of standing at a bus stop. If school is cancelled due to cold weather, practice will be cancelled as well.
When the hazard is freezing rain and/or snow, we will postpone practice until 06:30 to give the school district a chance to cancel or delay school, if needed. If there is a delay or cancellation of school there will be no practice. This is to ensure cadets and parents are not out on the roads driving in what could be called unsafe conditions.
So, if the news issues a winter weather storm watch or warning for either condition above please follow the guidelines as stated.
If you have any questions please call LtCol Knotts - 937-422-9556 or
Senior Chief Griffin - 937-470-0585
Northmont places 3rd in Floyd Central Drill Meet
Saturday, November 14, the Northmont High School Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) placed third at the first ever Floyd Central Drill Meet held at Floyd Central High School in Floyds Knob, Indiana. Twelve schools from Illinois, Indiana and Ohio competed in the event.
The Thunderbolts won trophies for the following team events: academics, second place; athletics, first place; unarmed IDR, second place; unarmed exhibition, third place; armed exhibition, second place; and color guard, first place.
The highlight of the drill meet is the knockout events. Approximately 225 cadets flooded the drill deck, lining up in a large military formation, and executing stationary drill for individual precision, with more than ten judges swarming through the formation “knocking them out” for failure to execute the movement precisely, until the last man or woman is standing. Northmont cadets, Alison Cornett , Jacob Marshall and Gwen Landes placed first, fourth, and fifth, respectively, in armed knockout while cadet Caylin Hefferon placed first in unarmed knockout.
