School Owned Instrument Returns-Cleaning Expectations

Earlier this week Mrs. Brinkman sent an email to all school owned instruments families. We are needing students to have their instruments returned to us by Wednesday , May 18. Prior to returning their instruments students must clean their instruments and complete the Instrument Cleaning Form that requires both their signature but also a parent confirmation. The buttons below include resources to help students know HOW to clean their instrument as well as the document needed to return with the instruments.


PLEASE BE DILIGENT AND CAREFUL WHILE CLEANING. USING THE WRONG OIL/GREASE ON AN INSTRUMENT CAN CAUSE DAMAGE THAT IS NOT COVERED BY THE RENTAL FEE.


FAQ:


My student is continuing in band do I still need to clean and return?

Yes. Once inspected we will check back out to students so that they have an instrument over the summer


Is my student still expected to practice once turned in?

We will suspend practice log expectations for those with school instruments while we go through this process.


My students is going to Emerson High School next year, what do we do?

You will still turn in your instrument, but we will check it back out so that your child has an instrument until the new inventory for EHS is ready to be checked out.
