Families of Students NOT Continuing in Band/Orchestra

Hello Families,

If your student is NOT continuing with Band and/or Orchestra next year, they need to return their uniform.  This is ONLY for those students who are definitely NOT going to be part of the Instrumental Music Program next year, everyone else should keep their uniforms.

Please have your student turn ALL pieces of their uniform directly to Dawn by May 14th.  She has a checklist that needs to be marked off.  You do not have to have the uniform dry cleaned.  Just have your student turn in their uniform with a check for $20 made payable to Analy Band.  Orchestra girls, since you only have a dress to be dry cleaned it will be $15.  You may choose to dry clean the uniform yourself, in that case, return it in the dry-cleaning bag with the receipt.  If there are missing uniform pieces, you will need to pay to have that piece replaced.  If your student does not turn in their uniform by May 14th, a notice of the debt will be submitted to the administration.  They will then place a hold on your student’s registration in the Fall.  Below is a list of uniform items that need to be returned and the replacement cost.

LIST OF UNIFORM ITEMS & COSTS

Black tuxedo pants    –    $30

White tuxedo shirt    –    $15

If you have a student that has an issue with their uniform (ex. too small or too big) and IS continuing in the band/orchestra program next year just have them hang on to it until the beginning of school.  This is to allow for any changes with their height and/or weight over the summer.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Dawn in the band/orchestra office at 824-2337.

Thank You!
