Uniform Reminders – Leggings, Belts, and Sweaters

Can my daughter wear leggings? Does my son have to wear a belt? Can they wear a sweater? What brand is important?

 

Since the weather has turned colder, we’re requiring that students wear only approved Shalom sweaters or fleece when in the classroom. These can be ordered from Flynn O’Hara or Lands End.

 

We also want to clarify some of the questions regarding uniforms since we’ve made changes this year. All information is available in the Parent/Student Handbook located on our website including links to specific items that are approved for purchase.

 

Boys –

 

Belts are not required for any pants/shorts when worn with a polo. When wearing a button down oxford shirt, belts are required.

 

Shirts must be tucked in if the student is wearing a button-down oxford shirt. Polo shirts do not have to be tucked in.
