IMPORTANT MARCHING BAND UNIFORM INFORMATION: We will NOT be collecting uniforms on Monday, November 12. They are needed for the OLMS Recruiting Assembly happening the week of November 19th. (more details to follow). Uniforms will now be collected at our December Parent Meeting on Monday, December 3 from 6:00pm – 7:30pm. Please follow the instructions below:

1. Unpin/unsnap all Bibs( pants) legs before washing

2. Turn Jackets inside out for washing.

Wash the uniform separate from other laundry. It pills easily.

• Use COLD water on gentle cycle with a mild detergent.


• Tumble dry on LOW heat till damp and hang to finish drying. (If it is left in the dryer after tumbler has stopped, it becomes VERY wrinkled and it is difficult to get wrinkles out without re-washing.)

3. The Dinkles (shoes) are yours to keep, you paid for them. Some students may reuse their Dinkles for next year or for Winter Drumline.

4. Make sure all personal items are removed from garment bag.
