2018-19 Elementary School Dress Code Guidelines

DRESS CODE 

Students are required to wear school uniforms except for the Preschool.  Uniforms serve as an economy measure for our families.  Uniforms are also designed to bring dignity and enhance school spirit. The Academy encourages unity and an emphasis on the development of a relationship with Christ. May our students learn from God’s word in I Samuel 16:7“The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.  Man looks at our outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

     

Beginning the 2018-2019 school year, uniforms must be purchased from Lands’ End though their website at www.landsend.com.  Uniforms purchased from Parker Uniform will be grandfathered in for the 2018-2019 school year. 

 

See appropriate Parent/Student Handbook for uniform wear specific to each grade level.
