High School Uniforms

We are thankful for the blessings which come from having school uniforms! Please be careful to check the uniform policy regarding allowed items and item specifics, especially as we look toward school pictures in November and the Christmas concert at the Fox - both formal uniform occasions. The full Uniform Policy and pictorial guide are located under the Resources > Ordering Uniforms tabs. Please note particularly that ladies' skirts and skorts are intended to hit at the top of the knee and should be no more than 2" above the knee. Gentlemen's pants should be from our currently accepted providers: either Tommy Hilfiger uniform pants or Lands End school uniform pants. Because of supply difficulties last year, all previously accepted Lands' End items were additionally grandfathered in for this school year. Thank you!
