- JROTC is required to have physicals on file prior to competitions. Physical can be dated no earlier than 1 April 2018 to be effective for this school year. Process is mostly automated this year. URL: https://cleveland.rrps.net/about_our_school/athletics

- Will send home parent letter (our rules/regulations for program), need it signed and returned for grade along with the privacy act statement. Copies are posted under "useful links".

- This is a military style program. Males can't wear ear rings/ear gauges in the classroom. No nose piercings on any one. Take them out before you enter put them back in (if you must) when you leave. Uniforms are issued free of charge and are worn each Wednesday. Fridays are for PT (physical training). Keys to advancement: grades (above 2.0 MINIMUM), JCLC attendance (summer camp at Fort Bliss in El Paso), and team participation (don't do anything/don't get anything...sort of like life).

- First practice will be announced. We practice daily except Fridays...usually finishing by 1630 (1530 on Wednesdays). We have kids that drive living in every neighborhood you live in that can give rides. I may not carry kids in my car per the Army. 

-Our teams include: air rifle, armed and unarmed drill, color guard, PT, Cyber Defense and academics.
