The Lewis S. Mills High School Spartan Band is fortunate to have new and well cared for band uniforms for concert and marching ensembles. The cost of all of our uniforms is absolutely astronomical when you consider the fact that our organizations combined total in excess of 190. Because of this, it becomes necessary for us to be sure that the uniforms are accounted for, properly maintained, and cared for in an appropriate way by all of the students that they are assigned to.
This year's schedule for the distribution of band uniforms is below. Each student will be required to pay $35.00 for 2 cleanings throughout the year. They may also be required to pay for any tailoring that needs to be done to ensure the proper fit of their uniform. A tailor will be on hand to take care of these issues at each of the fitting times. In addition, all students and parents will be asked to sign a contract upon the receipt of their uniform agreeing to the terms and conditions associated with the use of all Spartan Band owned uniforms and accessories.
Should you require any additional information regarding band uniforms or the policies and procedures for their use please feel free to contact Mrs. Beth Niedmann, Uniform Coordinator by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

· All uniforms must be professionally dry cleaned ONLY!
The “Friends of the Lewis S. Mills Band” collects the uniforms after the fall and spring marching seasons, and has all the uniforms dry cleaned. The SAME uniform from the fall will be reissued to each student for the spring marching season. Should the uniform require additional cleaning while in the student’s possession, please notify the band director or see a band advisor for assistance. Additional cleanings may be the responsibility of the student/guardian but can be avoided with proper care.
