Uniform News!

Vest Order Update: We regret to inform those who are still waiting on their vest order that the facility responsible for manufacturing the fabric for the navy formal uniform vests was shut down for an extended period of time due to pandemic restrictions. The ensuing backlog has resulted in a severe delay in the fulfillment of all orders. The next round of vests should come mid-late April, and the office will send an update when this shipment arrives.

2021-22 Uniform Options Available: Students may now wear the new plaid uniform items which are officially part of the upcoming school year's uniform. Families are able to order these items through The Oaks' Lands' End website and we will be posting the new official policy soon.

Uniform Sale Notifications: We encourage you to sign up for Lands' End newsletters to receive notifications of upcoming sales.
