RETURN TO CADETS - FALL 2020
Welcome back 655 Richmond Squadron! We are excited to share that the 2020 – 2021 Training Year will begin on Monday, September 28, 2020!
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the Formation Commander made the decision to halt all cadet activities in March 2020, which abruptly ended all in-person activities for the remainder of the 2019-2020 training year. After months of planning, the Formation Commander has informed all corps/squadrons that we can resume training for 2020-2021. However, due to current health recommendations from provincial and federal governments, we will be commencing our training virtually, which will provide a safe learning environment for our cadets. The staff at 655 has been working extremely hard during the past month to ensure that the quality of training delivered to our cadets will not be affected through virtual training.
All returning cadets will be notified by their flight commanders with details of how the training year will occur. We will be utilizing the online learning platform, Google Classroom, (https://classroom.google.com) to facilitate all of our training. This platform not only allows our instructors the ability to teach classes virtually, but it also provides cadets a space to interact with their fellow cadets and share resources with one another. All cadets must have a Gmail account prior to the start of the training year. Flight Commanders will be contacting their cadets to obtain this information.
We hope to see all of you when training begins on September 28, 2020. This is an unprecedented situation for all of us and we are taking this entire process one step at a time to ensure a safe, yet fun and dynamic learning environment for our cadets. If you have any questions, please contact us through Facebook or our email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
