  • Staff Announcement

    It is with great pleasure that I announce to you the arrival of two new staff members: Command Sergeant Major (CSM) Chad C. Blansett and Lt. Col Jonathan Pooley. CSM Blansett will transition throughout this academic year; and, upon the retirement of Sergeant Major Sosa, Blansett will become Riverside’s Academy Sergeant Major for the academic year 2023-24. Lt. Col Pooley will also begin to transition to the role of the Commandant beginning late spring. We are both excited about these experienced senior leaders and grateful for Sergeant Major Sosa and Interim Commandant LTC Carter’s leadership. Celebrations as well as more information are to come. I just wanted to keep you in the loop so you can help us welcome new leaders to Riverside as well as show appreciation to leaders who have served Riverside well.

    Although you are welcome to bring lunch for your cadet and friends any day of the week, we have selected several Fridays this semester before open weekends or furloughs when you may join him for a meal prepared by Aramark at Mess II on the following dates:

    February 3 and 24
    March 3, 17 and 24
    April 28
    May 5
    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.
    An ORAH pass titled Family & Friends Mess II will be made available in ORAH on the Monday before the scheduled Family & Friend Mess II date. A Parent or Guardian must accompany minors. Meal vouchers are available at the Cadet Store for $3.50 each or $25 for eight vouchers.

     We look forward to seeing you on campus!

  • 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 if you have any questions about medication requests.
