End of year information for uniforms, school instruments, and finances:
Uniform: Concert uniforms must be dry cleaned and returned with the dry cleaning receipt by May 12 (for those participating in District Honor Band, please have your uniform dry-cleaned after the concert and turn in ASAP). If there is no receipt of cleaning, the student's Charms account will be charged a fee.
School instruments: All school owned instruments must be serviced by Southeastern Music and returned to the school for inventory by May 14. A repair ticket must accompany the instrument in order for the student not to be charged for any additional repairs. If the instrument is not ready for pick up, a repair ticket must be turned in by May 14. Marching horns will not be distributed until inventory is complete. Please do not take your concert instrument for repair until you complete your concert audition next week.
Finances: If you have an outstanding balance due in your band account, these need to be addressed ASAP by contacting Brenda Tapia or Darin Miller. Records of unpaid dues are kept with the school as well as the band boosters and can follow a student through other school activities. It can also impact your ability to participate in the graduation ceremony or other graduation activities when you are a senior.
