First Day of School Uniform
Parents, Monday’s uniform is the White oxford shirt, khaki slacks, and black/brown canvas shoes. Tennis shoes are fine, but no lavish colors that take your eye from the uniform. Black socks are required for every uniform. If your cadet has not yet been issued uniforms, please see #4 on the newsletter below.
Extra Credit Option for CPT Curtis' Classes
White Oxford Shirts
If your Cadet is too small for the XS white oxford shirt, Adult XS is the smallest shirt available through our distributor. You can purchase a shirt that fits your cadet and take it to Intermountain T-Shirt Company in Ogden, and they will put the patch on it for $5.We will deduct the fee for the white oxford from your account if you return it brand new or have not been issued one.
If your cadet has Not gotten their Uniform
They will be fitted during their military class/JROTC class the first week of school. Please have them wear Khaki slacks, and a white button up shirt, if they do not yet have their uniforms. The button up shirt can be short sleeve or long sleeve. Black socks, and black shoes.
Lost/Dropped Uniform Items
Please remember to put your cadets name in ALL of the uniforms: As of today we have a jacket, several hats, a couple of blue polos, ect that have been left in various locations in the school. It will not surprise you that there wasn’t a name in any of them. PLEASE save yourself the expense of buying new uniforms items...purchase a laundry marker and put your cadet’s name in every piece of clothing.

Carpooling and Trax Passes
Carpooling: Parents, you should have received an invite to join our carpool. For some reason, those with Yahoo accounts are having issues. If you have not received your invite, and you have a Yahoo account, please provide an alternate email to Mrs. Chandler and she can re invite you. Also, if you do not need carpool because you can drive your cadet to and from school, please login and create an account, you may be able to help other Cadets needing a ride to and from school. All carpooling hours can be applied to your volunteer hours for the year.

The cost covers the whole school year and is good for all UTA services. Please see the fee schedule for the costs. If you live less than 10 miles from the school, we recommend using a carpool.
