Important:  Students should have brought their CLEAN uniform back to school by today if not, it MUST BE RETURNED FIRST THING ON MONDAY to ensure it is available for composite pictures - which are next week October 10-13.
Please remember to wear calf length black socks and cleaned shoes.

Cleaning instructions: 

Gloves, collars, socks and bibs can (and should) be laundered often.

GLOVES – Wash in any white load.  They can be sprayed or treated with a small amount of oxyclean or dishwashing liquid (a great degreaser for those of you who play a brass instrument) prior to washing, but please do NOT use bleach!  Lay out to dry - do not dry in your dryer.  
Collars – Collars can be unsnapped and washed with gloves in any white load.  They can be sprayed or treated with a small amount of oxyclean prior to washing, but please do NOT use bleach!  Lay out to dry - do not dry in your dryer.
Jackets - Air out the jacket and the garment bag.  Take your jacket out of the uniform bag to air out and completely dry before returning it to your bag (Do NOT wash or clean - we dry clean them once per year.
Bibs - zip, make sure pockets are empty and wash in any dark load (not with towels!).  They can be line dried or dried in the dryer (take them out immediately so they don't wrinkle).
Black socks – provided by the student and washed regularly at home.  
Shoes - wipe with damp cloth (or ArmorAll wipes if you have them).
Wrist Guards – Percussion only - Wrist Guards are to be worn for ALL percussion composite pictures.
 
REPAIRS (buttons, ripped bibs, etc.):  If you notice anything that might need our attention when you are cleaning your uniform, please email us or tell us directly immediately.  We want to make all repairs in advance of the football game on Friday, October 14, 2016 so we are not scrambling at the last minute!
