White collars inside the uniform should be removed prior to dry cleaning and washed separately. Uniform collection will begin after the Portugal Day Parade and conclude on Friday, June 20th. To avoid delay of your child’s report card and/or diploma, uniforms must be dry cleaned and handed in before they’re returned – this is NOT optional.

     

    This great price will apply ANY TIME during the school year. So, at any point during this upcoming season, you can get your uniform dry cleaned whenever it needs freshening up!! (Before the home show, picture day, finals in Syracuse, NY, etc.)

     

    IMPORTANT – DO NOT just leave your uniform somewhere in the band room or marching band room!! You must hand it in to either Mr. Mauriello or Mr. Carreras so they can check it in. (Uniforms should be complete, cleaned, and in the garment bag – shakos must be in their corresponding shako box!!)
