  • Lacrosse!

    Due to the limited number of GIAA schools that field a Lacrosse team and the amount of travel that would be required, we have made the decision to offer Lacrosse as a club sport. We are working to secure a coach and build a schedule. We are working to finalize the details and will get that information out as soon as possible.

  • Holiday Furloughs

    Thanksgiving furlough will be here before we know it! There will be no exam exemptions for the 1st semester. 
    • Domestic Cadets can start signing out for Thanksgiving Furlough at 1:00 p.m. on November 18th and will need to return no later than 6:00 p.m. on November 28th
    • International cadets will be permitted to depart campus (not the Airport) as early as Thursday, November 17, at 5:00 p.m. ET, and they will be allowed to return as late as 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 29. 
      • We are sensitive to the desire of international families to see their sons as much as domestic families, and so, we have come to a compromise. These advantages for international students will give them an additional day on the front end of the break and an additional day on the back end of the break. They will be missing two days of instruction if their parents choose to leave early and return late, but the absences will be considered excused, and cadets will be able to make up missed assignments.
    • Winter Furlough will start at 1:00 p.m. on December 15th
      • Cadets must depart campus no later than 1:00 p.m. on December 16th
      • Departure flights should be booked for 6 pm or later.
      • Return flights should arrive in Atlanta no later than 4 pm
    Please see the calendar here to see when your son should report back to campus in January. 
     
    If your cadet will be flying home, please check the transportation schedule when planning his flight.

  • Medication on Leave Weekends

    When requesting a pass for your son through Orah, please consider whether he will need medications while on leave. If so, you will want to use the note section at the bottom of the pass request form to request medications. If you request medications, the Infirmary staff will pull enough medication for the requested leave period and have it ready for you to pick up at sign-out. This prior coordination through Orah will save you 15 minutes or more (and a trip to the Infirmary) at sign-out. Please feel free to contact the infirmary at 770-538-2197 or infirmary@riversidemilitary.com if you have any questions about medication requests.

  • Join Us for Lunch

    Although you are welcome to bring lunch to your cadet and his friends any day of the week, we have selected several Fridays this fall – days prior to open weekends or furloughs – when you may join him for a meal prepared by Aramark at Mess II:
     
    October 28
    November 4 and 18
    December 2
     
    If you’re available, be sure to arrive in time to observe Pass in Review at 12:15 pm, which is held immediately before Mess II at 12:25 pm. If you are planning to sign your cadet out that afternoon, you are welcome to gather with other parents at the Welcome Center located in the West Portal until academic classes are completed. The Welcome Center offers internet access, an electronic station, a television, a restroom, comfortable seating, and refreshments. Another option is to schedule a meeting with a Riverside faculty or staff member – just be sure to do so at least 24 hours in advance.
     
    Any time you plan to have lunch with your cadet, be sure to submit the available pass in ORAH named Family & Friends Mess II, which will be made available in ORAH on the Monday prior to the scheduled Family & Friend Mess II date. Minors must be accompanied by a Parent or Guardian. Meal vouchers may be purchased at the Cadet Store for $3.50 each or $25 for a total of eight vouchers.
     
    We look forward to seeing you on campus!
