Uniform items are issued out to Cadets at the beginning of each school year, then on an as-needed basis as Cadets outgrow specific items and need new ones issued & tailored. There is no cost to the Cadet or their parents when uniform items are issued out, and if an item requires tailoring the Cadet is given a tailoring sheet that can be taken to our Unit tailor. Our tailor will make the required adjustments and charge our Unit, not the individual Cadet or their parents.
The only cost to the Cadet and their parents is the cost of keeping the uniform items clean. While most of the issued uniform items can be machine washed and ironed at home, some specific items require occasional dry-cleaning, and these costs are the responsibility of the Cadet and their parents. Each issued item will have a tag that describes how to clean the item.
Only clean uniforms are issued out to Cadets. When a Cadet returns a uniform item, whether because they have outgrown it or because they are leaving the program, it is expected that they will be turned in cleaned as well.
In order for a uniform item to be accepted back by our Unit, it must be dry-cleaned, and be brought to the Unit in the dry-cleaning bag with the dated receipt attached. If uniforms are turned in that haven't been dry-cleaned, the Cadet will receive a $35.00 fine on their student account.
If a Cadet leaves the program and has not turned in all of their uniform items, a fine for the outstanding uniform items will be sent to the school administration. Students cannot attend school functions, nor can their grade reports / transcripts be sent out until they have cleared all of their fines.
