NOTE: If a Cadet will miss classes while on furlough this does not excuse the Cadet from classes or coursework. It is the Cadet’s responsibility to complete all assignments and coursework to stay on track. For early departures and late returns from Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring Breaks, Cadets must provide their TLA with a written request for leaving early or returning late. TLAs will then request the cadet be placed on status. Instructors will determine the academic consequence of leaving early or returning late.

NMMI Parent Club Swap Shop Guidelines

The Parent Club Swap Shop is a new program being offered through the joint efforts of the Commandant’s office and the NMMI Parent Club.  A limited number of used uniform items are available through the Swap Shop for Cadets that need to replace damaged or poorly fitting items.  The Swap Shop may save cadets some costs when needing to replace uniforms. However, Cadets should not expect to find all items needed at the Swap Shop and should still expect to purchase new uniform items at the Cadet Store at their own expense.

Here is how the program works:

  1. Cadets can swap ill-fitting or damaged uniform items on a 1 for 1 basis. No money is exchanged.
    2. Most of what the Swap Shop has is blue pants, white shirts and ACU’s. Some other items including black jackets and hats may occasionally be available.
    3. The Swap Shop is located in a shipping container behind Saunders Barracks and will be available BY APPOINTMENT by emailing Parent Club volunteers at NMMIswapshop@gmail.com.
    4. The Parent Club will schedule Swap Shop appointments only when Cadets are not busy with other responsibilities and as approved by the Commandant’s Office.
  2. Because the Swap Shop is located outside and has no electricity, appointment times are dependent on weather and daylight.
  3. Cadets should arrive at the Swap Shop with the items they wish to swap on hangers if possible.  It is ok if items are damaged or unclean.
  4. It is best if Cadets wear summer P.T.’s or similar lightweight shorts and shirt so uniform items can be put on over clothing to test the fit.  No changing rooms or private areas are available.
  5. The Swap Shop is staffed with background checked parent volunteers.  These parents have donated their own time and resources to have a Swap Shop available to Cadets. Please be patient and respectful.
  6. The Swap Shop parent volunteers will not release items they consider to be ill fitting.  However, if minor alterations are needed it is the Cadet’s responsibility to have them done at their own expense.
  7. Cadets are still responsible for maintaining serviceable uniform items and uniform repairs as outlined in the Blue Book.  If a Cadet receives a replacement item they must also be inspected by their TLA to ensure proper fit.

Update on shooting at local school

 

To Our Parents and Family Members:

This morning at 8:21 am NMMI school officials were informed of a shooting incident at Berrendo Middle School located in north Roswell, approximately 2 miles north or the NMMI campus.

At that time as a precaution, General Grizzle ordered implementation of NMMI’s emergency procedures to ensure the safety and security of NMMI cadets, faculty and staff. The Commandant of Cadets is in contact with Campus Chief of Police at the scene to report on the police response and particulars of the incident as they might pertain to NMMI’s emergency operations.

Actions taken thus far in the aftermath of the incident to ensure the safety and security of the NMMI campus and our cadets are:

• The Commandant’s Staff is monitoring police scanner and campus video cameras from TLA Command Post.
• TLAs have been posted to campus entrances with radios for presence and entrance monitoring of campus ingress.
• One police officer is on a rolling patrol of the campus, and one police car has been moved to campus entrances for show of presence.

We have received reports from the scene that the shooter has been apprehended. However, General Grizzle has ordered the Commandant to maintain our emergency posture as a precaution until all response efforts have been secured.

NMMI is safe, your cadet is safe. We are monitoring the situation continuously.
