Uniform FAQ

 

  • I recently purchased new polo/Peter Pan/Oxford collar shirts without the school logo, do I need to buy all new shirts for next school year? We will be making this transition to 100% logos over the course of the next year and will allow time for it to be implemented. By the fall of 2019, the policy will be fully in place. If you have new or relatively new shirts without the logo, your child may wear them for the 2018-2019 school year. Also, we have contracted with a local business, Monster Kolor, who will embroider the school logo on approved school shirts. (Embroidery done by Monster Kolor must be coordinated through the SFS uniform committee.)
  • May my student still wear the grey/green plaid from Donnelly’s Clothing Store? No. We are changing plaids to the White Plaid sold by Lands’ End.
  • Is grey still an acceptable color for pants and shorts? What about yellow for shirts and sweaters No. Grey and yellow are no longer our uniform colors. Uniform colors are black, evergreen, and white.
  • Do I need to purchase the black pants and shorts from the Land’s End website? No. As long as the pants or shorts meet the dress code requirements as stated in our uniform policy, you may purchase pants and shorts for both the regular uniform and Friday PE uniform from a vendor of your choice.
  • Does my K-4th daughter need to have the SFS logo on her Peter Pan collared shirt worn under her plaid jumper? No. Only shirts that are visible must have the SFS logo.
  • Does the plaid jumper need to be embroidered with the school logo? The SFS logo is optional for the plaid jumper.
  • May my K-4th grade daughter wear an evergreen or white polo underneath her uniform jumper? No. White shirts with Peter Pan collars are required for the K-4th dress uniform.
  • May my 5th-8th grade daughter wear a white polo with the plaid uniform skirt? Ladies may wear the white polo shirt any day except for Wednesdays. They must wear the white button-down tailored shirt with logo for their Wednesday dress uniform.
  • May my student wear a sweater or sweatshirt without a school polo or collared shirt underneath it? No. All sweaters, sweatshirts, fleeces, etc. must be layered over an official school uniform shirt.
  • My daughter is going into 4th grade next year. Do I need to buy her a new plaid jumper for her 4th grade year and then buy her a plaid skirt the following year? No. For the 2018-2019 school year ONLY, 4th grade girls will be allowed to wear the plaid skirt instead of the jumper. This exception is for one year only.
  • May my K-8th grade daughter wear skinny pants or “pencil” pants? Only girls in 9th-12th grades may wear skinny “pencil” pants. Ladies in K-8th must wear straight leg, full-length styles.
  • Does my child have to wear outerwear with a logo to play outside at recess or for PE in the winter months? No. Students may wear any coat or jacket to and from school and during recess and cold-weather PE classes. The logo rule is for all items worn in the school building during the school day.
  • Is there a possibility of a discounted bulk uniform order to help alleviate the cost? Yes. We are coordinating with Land’s End to provide a one-time bulk uniform order at a discounted price. We are also looking into other ways to minimize the cost to our families.
