~School Uniform Policy Parents, This year we added leggings to the dress code for girls to wear under their school skirt due to popular request and in an effort to help accommodate more comfortable attire. There have been instances of loose fitting sweatpants posing as leggings. In addition, leggings that are too short and not covered by socks. Below are examples of leggings that are acceptable and the rule from the Uniform Policy which can be found in the Family Handbook. Thank you for your cooperation with this.
Girls' Dress & Appearance: In addition to tights or socks, basic solid navy or black leggings will be acceptable attire for girls, worn underneath the standard uniform jumper or skirt. Girls wearing leggings will be required to wear socks that cover the bottom of the legging.
On a designated dress up day, leggings maybe worn only if an appropriate length dress, skirt is worn over the top. Appropriate length for skirt or dress is three inches above the knee. Leggings are not allowed on spirit or dress down days.
~School Store They give money to schools for doing online shopping through their site. By visiting their site you can link to more than 400 stores like Target, Walmart, Kohls, Best Buy, Barnes & Noble, etc., then shop like you normally do at those retailers and they will give a percent of your purchase amount to our school!! You can even pay online with HOPE certificates if you normally do that! Registration is optional, but if you do register you can send emails to family and friends so their purchases can benefit our school too, your kids can win prizes with certain purchases, and you have the chance to win $100 for each student you register!! If you choose not to register you can visit www.schoolstore.com and find our school through the button on the top right, then click on the Merchants button to see all the retailers you can shop through. This program will run through the entire school year, but with the holiday shopping season upon us it's a great way to send a little extra money to our school by doing what you normally do! If you have any questions contact Jen List @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
