Freshman Orientation August 9 - 11, 2017
Congratulations! Your son or daughter is among 50 new cadets enrolled in the Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) program at Northmont High School for SY 2017 - 2018. We would like to invite your son and/or daughter to a freshman orientation on Wednesday through Friday, 9 - 11 August, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
At the orientation, new cadets will be introduced to the unit’s staff and will immediately begin their instruction. We will have various demonstrations and will go through a step-by-step process to ensure that each cadet has the knowledge and skills needed to accomplish the goals expected of them by the staff.
In preparation for upcoming parades and drill meets, they will be taught the basics of drill. This will also prepare the new cadets for the Hamilton High School drill meet, an NS1 only drill meet where Northmont traditionally does very well. We will primarily focus on unarmed drill. All teams, including Armed and Unarmed Exhibition, Color Guard, and Air Rifle, will be demonstrating their routines throughout the three-day session.
A major bonus to this week’s training is the chance to receive their uniform earlier than those not attending. In addition, the cadets will learn such tasks as properly shining their NJROTC shoes and their brass (buckle and belt); and they will learn all of the basic requirements of wearing the cadet uniform. Lastly, those cadets completing the 3 day orientation will receive their first ribbon and step up in rank!
Please follow these important deadlines:
1. Complete and return the yellow sheet stating your plan to attend and your t-shirt size immediately in the enclosed envelope.
2. Bring the fee for Orientation is $20.00. The fee will cover an Orientation t-shirt, a Northmont NJROTC water bottle and pizza on the last day. Please make checks payable to Northmont NJROTC.
Cadets should wear gym shoes, athletic shorts, (They will receive their new water bottle on the first day of orientation).
Arrive at the door adjacent to Door 2 at 0800, 9 August, 2017. We look forward to seeing you here!

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 considered 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:

Congratulations Northmont! #9 in the Nation!
