Check on the Status of the Uniform!
Now that marching season has come to a close, it is a great time to check on the status of those uniforms!
Use this link below for a digital copy of the instructional care sheet that was given out during fittings.
Please take a few moments to review this helpful information with your student to make sure your child's uniform is receiving the proper care it deserves.
Important Points to Remember:
Do not allow any part of the uniform to be stored wet or dirty.
The uniform should always be stored outside of the garment bag to air out; bags are for travel only. (Trust me. You'll be doing everyone a huge favor by doing this!)
Brush off dry dirt before cleaning; then, spot clean with a sponge dampened with cold water and detergent. (Shout or OxiClean can be used. Do not use chlorine-based products.)
If dry cleaning becomes necessary, the uniform needs to go to Swift Cleaners in Aston. (They are familiar with our uniforms and the appropriate cleaning method to be used.)
Please refer to the sheet for more details, such as instructions for cleaning shakos and gauntlets (wipe 'em down and air 'em out!).
If you have questions, or if you are having any problems with your uniform, please reach out to Jen Schmidt at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Masks are to be worn at all times.
Family members (siblings, or parent chaperones) will sit together.
Drivers will open windows for ventilation. Passengers should not touch windows unless given permission.
Passengers can sit two to a seat.
