Uniform Compliance Letter from The Commandant

Effective 8 April 2019 OMI is introducing new consequences to address the problem of cadets wearing the wrong uniform.

 

I receive overwhelming feedback from parents and cadets that they expect more structure and discipline at OMI.  This updated policy is a response to that demand. 

 

Wearing the correct uniform is a fundamental requirement to be a good citizen at OMI.  Many cadets choose to wear their physical training uniform on days they should be wearing their Class B uniform.  Wearing the incorrect uniform is undermining every cadet that is choosing to comply with the correct standard.  The correct uniform is what unifies the cadet corps at OMI into a cohesive team.  

 

The cadets offer the following reasons they are not in the correct uniform: their uniforms are dirty, they are missing uniform items, or their uniforms do not fit.    Having a clean uniform is about proper planning.  Any cadet missing uniform items or experiencing sizing issues can bring this issue to their TAC officer or NCO to get fixed.  Also, we are seeing more and more unauthorized clothing items, particularly with unauthorized hoods (red, green, purple, etc.).

 

I ask that parents do what they can to assist the cadet in being successful with their planning and preparation.  On Sunday and each evening during the week, please engage your cadet about their uniform preparation. If they are missing items or items do not fit raise this information to the cadet’s TAC officer of Non-Commissioned Officer.

 

Effective 8 April 2019 (the training week) the following steps will be taken:

 

1)  Cadets wearing the incorrect uniform will receive after school detention.  This is a period where they will receive training about the proper wear of the uniform.  Cadets who do not report to after school detention will receive weekend detention.

 

2)  Weekend detention will take place on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 12:00 P.M.   Cadets will receive further training.  They will also improve their cadet citizenship by conducting campus beautification.

 

3)  If the cadet continues to wear the wrong uniform the guardian of the cadet will be requested to accompany the cadet to weekend detention.

 

In the future this progressive model will be applied to other enumerated offenses.  

 

If we cannot meet the standard of the correct uniform it will be a challenge to meet some of the more complex demands of OMI.

 

I ask for your 100% support by assisting in the ways outlined above.

 

The Commandant

 

 

 

A partir del 8 de abril de 2019, OMI está introduciendo nuevas consecuencias para abordar el problema de que los cadetes usen el uniforme equivocado. Recibo comentarios abrumadores de padres y cadetes de que esperan más estructura y disciplina en OMI. Esta política actualizada es una respuesta a esa demanda. El uso del uniforme correcto es un requisito fundamental para ser un buen cadete en OMI. Muchos cadetes eligen usar su uniforme de entrenamiento físico los días en que deben usar su uniforme de “Class B”. El uso del uniforme incorrecto está socavando a todos los cadetes que eligen cumplir con el estándar correcto. El uniforme correcto es lo que crea unidad entre los cadetes de OMI.

Los cadetes ofrecen las siguientes razones por las cuales no están en el uniforme correcto: sus uniformes están sucios, les faltan elementos uniformes o sus uniformes no les quedan. Tener un uniforme limpio es sobre la planificación adecuada. Cualquier cadete que falte en los artículos de uniforme o experimente problemas de tamaño puede llevar este problema a su oficial de TAC o NCO para que lo solucionen. Además, estamos viendo más y más artículos de ropa no autorizados, particularmente con sudaderas con capuchas no autorizadas (rojo, verde, morado, etc.).

Les pido a los padres que hagan lo que puedan para ayudar al cadete a tener éxito con su planificación y preparación. El domingo y cada noche durante la semana, por favor comuníquese con su cadete sobre la preparación de su uniforme. Si faltan elementos o  el uniforme no le queda a su cadete por favor comuniquese con el equipo TAC o NCO.

A partir del 8 de abril de 2019 (la semana de entrenamiento) se tomarán los siguientes pasos:

1) Los cadetes que usen el uniforme incorrecto recibirán detención después de la escuela. Este es un período en el que recibirán capacitación sobre el uso correcto del uniforme. Los cadetes que no se reporten a detención después de la escuela recibirán detención el fin de semana.

2) La detención de fin de semana tendrá lugar los sábados de 9:00 a.m. a 12:00 p.m. Los cadetes recibirán más formación. También mejorarán su ciudadanía de cadetes mediante el embellecimiento de la escuela.

3) Si el cadete continúa usando el uniforme equivocado, se solicitará que vengan los padres/guardián del cadete que lo acompañe a la detención del fin de semana.

En el futuro, este modelo progresivo se aplicará a otros delitos enumerados.

Si no podemos cumplir con el estándar del uniforme correcto, será un desafío cumplir con algunas de las demandas más complejas de OMI.

Solicito su apoyo al 100% asistiéndome en las formas descritas anteriormente.

Cadets at OMI are required to fulfill

Community Service Hours each school year.

 

Middle School Cadets must complete 20 hours.

 

High School Cadets must complete 40 hours.

 

Service hours are tracked using a computer system called Noble Hour. Students must log in to this system and track their own hours. The hours are verified and approved by a staff member. During the school year many opportunities for Community Service will be offered by OMI and advertised to the cadets. They are also encouraged to find their own community service opportunities outside of the school in their own communities.   On Fridays at the After School program for 6-9th graders, community service projects are done each week and the block is called The Noble Hour.
