Wearing their masks, ready with hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes,  AJK staff and members from the North Chicago Community Partners welcomed back Cadets for the first time since last March.

It was a successful 1st day back and Cadets were excited to see their teachers in person while practicing social distancing.  While some students attended classes face-to-face (or mask-to-mask), others were fully remote.

The hybrid model helps reduce the number of students in the building by moving some of the students online for remote learning. Eventually more cadets will be back at the Academy for in-person learning.
