School Uniform: Khaki will be the color of our pants, skirts, skorts, dresses and/or shorts. Students will have the option of wearing white or red polo or rugby shirts/blouses, sweaters and/or vests.

Gym Uniform: Students will wear gray sweatpants and sweatshirts or T-shirts with our school name and/or logo. Parents can purchase the gym uniform through Land’s End. www.landsend.com/pp/SchoolSearch.html?action=landing&selectedSchoolNum=90018148

FRIDAYS:  Students have the option of dressing down in their own clothes provided it’s appropriate to school.  Uniforms may also be worn if you choose.

Please make sure your children have proper footwear, sneakers are required on gym day.  No Crocs, high heels or flip flops will be allowed in school for safety reasons.

**Classes that wear their uniforms daily for the week will get to participate in “Fun Fridays.” **

Lunch Bags

If your child’s lunch bag has a long strap, kindly remove the strap.  We have observed children putting the strap around their neck.
