Concert Band Uniform Return

Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors: May 16th or May 17th, 6-8pm

A parent or guardian must be present when returning the concert band uniform.

Uniform parts that need to be returned include:
  • Concert Jacket
  • Concert Pants
  • Bow Tie
  • Clear Garment Bag
  • Dry-cleaning receipt dated after final concert for underclassmen
  • The royal blue garment bag, concert tuxedo shirt and shoes are yours to keep for next year.

    Please plan in advance by having your concert uniform dry-cleaned prior to the scheduled return nights. If a uniform is returned without the dry-cleaning receipt, a $10 dry-cleaning assessment will be charged.

    To avoid being placed on the APS fines list, all uniform parts must be returned (This includes concert and marching uniform parts). Any missing or damaged uniform parts must be paid for as well as any remaining balance owed.

    Please direct questions to Mindy Staten at 340-3351 or email
