Retrieval of Personal Items from Campus

April 13, 2020

As a result of the Academy’s revised academic plans due to Wisconsin’s Safer-at-Home order, in effect until at least April 24, we’ve received questions regarding the pick-up of personal items from campus and the return of rental items.

As the order restricts all “non-essential” travel, the Academy cannot accommodate any requests to retrieve items from campus at this time. Also, we must account for the safety of our employees while interacting with others. However, since a revised or extended stay-at-home policy is likely, the Academy is determining a plan for cadets and their families to retrieve personal items, and return rental items, in the safest way possible. As this planning must take into account the rules issued for travel and person-to-person interaction, it is likely that we will issue an appointment schedule for trips to campus. If the Safer-at-Home order is extended, we will adjust accordingly to postpone travel, as well as person-to-person interaction, until restrictions are lifted. In cases where trips to campus are not possible, we will provide options for shipping items home or storing them on campus. Some of these options may be at an extra cost. These options also depend on the capacity of Academy personnel to support such efforts, and the availability of secure storage space on campus.

In short, any planning will need to remain fluid in order to respond to government and health organization guidelines. As soon as we have clarification on what restrictions will be in place after April 24, we will provide an update.

Thank you for your continued patience and support in these uncertain times. We are getting through this together!

Eric Wozniak, Headmaster
