April 18, 10am to 11 am.
Scripps Ranch High School has launched a student tech help page that is supposed to get students up and running with setup help and access to other learning sites.
It is meant to be simple:
The link is here, and you can also find it on the school website under “for students”. Please note that you have to be signed in to your school account to access it, it will provide a 404 error otherwise.
The following info is aimed towards Armed Team members or any cadet who wishes to participate in a solo Armed Exhibition competition. Please note that the participant must be a high school student, must use their OWN rifle(not unit/gov owned rifles), must have parent consent, participation is strictly independent and not connected to JROTC support in any way, the attire must be strictly civilian (trousers, plain collared shirt, footgear - no logos or identifying items on clothing), the routine must be 2-3 minutes with no strict area size (although 30’x30’ is typical), and the participant is responsible for viewing the online SOP. The sign up sheet is here.
The following are the official rules:
Students participating will be entered by their parent and/or guardian only. JROTC instructors should contact their cadets and/or parent to alert them to this method of entry and send them the attached entry form…but JROTC instructors can maintain no official or unofficial involvement past that point.
High school students who choose to enter this event must have their own drill rifle or have access to one.
The performing cadet will simply provide their name and school info for registration and for report in & out on the video. No service affiliation will be sought nor presented in any manner. To that end, cadets will compete with long pants and collared shirt. This clothing has no restrictions on colors or style BUT cannot in anyway identify a military service branch by writing, image or words used in the routine (a non-descript cover is optional and not required).
The registration fee will be for one cadet or two soloist from the same school but each cadet must compete a separate registration form.
Filming of the routine must be done from a 10’ distance at all times and must be done by a household member (NOTE: cannot have friends gather to perform and film).
No boundaries will be officially in use, however students should review the score sheet to see that marching is a graded element of the competition. Traditional area is 25-33 feet square. And a 2-3 minute time limit is still in effect.
Regarding cancellations for SNI drill events, they said “We have gone through the arduous process of finalizing all refunds still outstanding for the numerous drill & ceremony competitions that we have been forced to cancel. For those programs still awaiting refund checks, the last round is mailing by this Friday and you should have them in your hands by next week. SNI is sorry for the delay but this is all new territory for us as well. We are glad to be able to finalize this for you and again, so sorry for the time this took to complete.”
Here is a message from our new Group Commander concerning General Staff.

The following is a message from the SNI Team concerning further drill events.
LATEST INFO REGARDING THE FUTURE DRILL EVENTS HOSTED BY SNI
In keeping with national regulations on group gatherings still in place combined with numerous school systems extending their stay closed dates until early May, SNI has made the tough but right call to cancel both the on-site and on-line NHSDTC competition. Therefore, no team events or color guard competitions will be hosted and the NHSDTC as a school championship event has been shut down for 2020. We want to congratulate those schools who worked hard all year. It is a phrase too often used but CORRECT in this instance, you are all winners for your efforts.
All students and JROTC cadets should be uplifted by school systems having the good sense to push out the date and not just reflexively cancel schools in so much of the nation. Good decisions are borne of good information and NOBODY knows what the USA or the world will look like in May. Currently the four JROTC service HQs have shut down all organized activities until further notice. We at SNI completely concur with this call. There is just too much unknown at this point to make any definitive call on yes or no to anything at any point in the future so shutting down until further notice from their perspective is the prudent call. Both the Air Force and Marine Corps JROTC HQs have asked SNI to not involve their service with anything this summer and we will honor that request. They will be plenty busy enough getting ready for the 2020-21 school year no doubt!
SNI has set an internal date of early May to pop up our periscope and see what the world looks like at that time. Many promising actions are happening across the globe that make us believe the world will be a very different and better place towards the end of April and we are very hopeful more of American will start to creep back into a more normal activity level - but again, time will tell. To all high school cadets, take your on-line classes seriously, follow all school district, service, local, state and federal guidelines in place and look for more information on future SNI events through email, the Facebook page for both the NHSDTC, Individual Drill competitions and the Nationals Drill Camp.

Please look at this flier for student safety on Zoom.
Cadet Leaders and Parents,
Please see message and attachment from our administration. They are asking all staff members for widest dissemination of this information. Please post to our unit website and SM accounts as well as emailing all parents.
On Monday, April 6th, admin will make a list of students who still need to fill out the survey. We will organize the students and assign them to individual staff members to call. We will create a script so a uniform message is being utilized by the school. All staff should be available to make calls so hopefully it will be only a few students per staff member to call. Additionally, please post the attached message or link on your websites, include the link in your reminder messages to students, SRHS social media accounts (such as ASB clubs or athletics), etc. The more we can get the message out to students the better chance we will have of catching the majority of students electronically, which will eliminate the need to call multiple students on Monday. The link to the survey is: https://forms.gle/5Y7Ljm21tmjC7BYa7
The Scripps Ranch Civic Association is looking for people with 3D printers that are willing to print headgear for masks to provide to doctors/nurses that may come into contact with COVID-19 patients. In order to recieve the printing files, you must email the SRCA at firstname.lastname@example.org. It takes around 6 hours to print a face shield, thus every face shield printed and delivered will be worth two volunteer hours, as your printer does most of the work. In order to recieve credit for those hours, you must send a picture of your printed face shields when you drop them off at the designated address and send them to c/Capt. Michelle Resubal or any of the Senior Staff members. Please take this opportunity to help people in need!

I want to take a minute to say a huge thank you to all of you. As I sit at home with my family watching all the news and information of COVID-19 coming in from all over the world, I’ve had time to reflect and process all the things that have been effected not just in my personal life but also all of yours as well.
As students/cadets, you have seen so much of your lives canceled for the time being - no school, no JROTC Ball, no drill comps, no base visits, no sports, no college visits, no SAT, no socializing in person.
Although disappointing to say the least, please know that LIFE IS NOT CANCELLED and each of you still have many things to look forward to enjoy and be challenged with.
I’m grateful for all your hard work despite a time of uncertainty for all of us. Thanks for all you do and everything you stand for as cadets, students and as individuals. As Colonel Tucker said to all of you before we left school. Be grateful for life and all that it throws at you (albeit good or bad). Embrace our loved ones, stay positive and make the best of your time while away from school.
Stay in touch (via social media) with family and friends and try to make these tumultuous times as normal as possible.
All of you need to be back at school as soon as it’s safe to do so and when that time comes, Colonel Tucker and myself will do everything we can to make it the best, enriching and most memorable last few months of our school year!
Students first, ALWAYS!
As many of you may know, the recent COVID-19 crisis has caused our district’s schools to close. As of now, our school will be closed from today, March 16th, until April 6th.

Dear Cadets and Parents,
It’s that time of year again! The AFJROTC’s Annual Holiday Canned Food Drive will officially start on November 1st and run through November 30th. All non-perishable and unexpired canned food can be donated to classrooms around the campus that have marked blue or red bins for collection, or you can donate directly to the JROTC Room (B-14). All proceeds go to the local San Diego Food Bank. Last year, with everyone’s contributions, we raised over 15,000 lbs. of food for the less fortunate in our beautiful city. Let’s try and top that this year!
If you would like a bin or smaller cardboard box delivered to your classroom, please let us know and we will have them brought to your class before 1 November.
Thanks and we look forward to another successful “giving” holiday canned food drive. Click here for the flyer.
I hope you are all having a FUN-FILLED FRIDAY🎊
