We have issued a new check out policy regarding damaged and lost costumes; please review this policy prior to checking out your costumes.
We sincerely want your performances to be experiences that create enjoyable memories for all teachers, students, and parents. The majority of these costumes are vintage, therefore special care and attention must be given when handling these costumes. Also, be considerate of your fellow educators and return your costumes promptly after use. This also improves the chances of checked-out items not being misplaced.
