Important Uniform Cleaning Information

What a fantastic year of football games and competitions.  The kids have worked hard and we all enjoy watching them perform so very much.  It truly is a gift to be a part of this band family. 

There was a bit of confusion last night about taking the uniform home.  I know Doc had informed some kids to not take them home if they were performing Monday night.  So, in light of that, whoever left there uniform at school, it must go home Monday night after the performance to be cleaned.  
IF YOU ARE PERFORMING MONDAY NIGHT AND DID TAKE YOUR UNIFORM HOME, YOU MUST BRING IT BACK WITH YOU TOMORROW FOR YOUR PERFORMANCE AND THEN TAKE BACK HOME FOR BELOW PROCESS

INSTRUCTIONS ON CLEANING:
  1. Washing Bibs, gloves, and snapin white collar.
  2. Hang Jacket unbuttoned out of the bag to air out.  Might be good to let air out; outside for a bit.  You can use a light spray of Frabreeze, only on the inside, especially armpit area.
  3. Let shoes air out, untied, in the fresh air.  These items will mold quickly if left in the bag.
  4. Turn bags inside out, spray with Frebreeze and let air dry, the sun is good on them.  
  5. When all cleaned and freshened please put collars back in correctly and hang all neatly back on hanger-leave unzipped.  If buttons fall off or are loose, please sew back on. Mend any ripped seams.  Let us know if you need help or have any questions.
Thank you for attention to the Uniforms. It takes a lot of attention to care for all the uniforms, but with your help, it makes for much lighter work for your Uniform team - Uniforms are expensive and we want them to keep looking great for years to come.  
Also, please talk to your students about taking care of them and putting them away neatly while keeping track of all the pieces of their uniform to cut down on missing bibs, shoes, gloves, hats, etc.

PLEASE HAVE ALL UNIFORMS RETURNED TO BAND ROOM AND PUT AWAY (EVEN ON RACKS, ODD NUMBER IN CABINETS-- DUE BACK AT SCHOOL BY NOVEMBER 14

Thank you very much, we have all enjoyed working with your kids and helping them look awesome!

Your Uniform Committee,
