SAN ANTONIO, TX -- On 1 Oct 2020, the San Antonio Independant School District Director of Army Instructions (DAI) released guidance allowing JROTC programs to resume Face2Face practices beginning 5 Oct 2020.

The Brackenridge High School JROTC Instructors sent letters to Parents outlining the practice plans, hosted a ZOOM session to discuss safety procedures, and invited Cadets for our first practice session.

On Wednesday, 7 Oct 2020, we had 27 motivated Cadets show up to take part in our practice session. It was extremely productive with a huge focus on safety! The Cadets expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to resume what the love and miss so dearly - their fellow Cadets, Drill Practice, Teamwork, Structure, and Discipline!

On Thursday, October 8th 2020, Brackenridge High School JROTC held its first Physical Fitness practice session since Face2Face activities were limited in March 2020 due to COVID 19 restrictions. Although practice was scheduled for 7:00am, Cadets began arriving as early as 6:30am, excited about the opportunity to take part in this fitness session. They respected each others space - maintaining social distancing, while maximizing the exercises. They had a great time, and are looking forward to the next PT session.


Great work Brackenridge HS JROTC - keep up the great work!
