New Girls’ Uniform

Dear Parents,

After Spring Break you will be receiving our School Uniform ordering packet. Because there will be a change in the girls' uniforms for the 2011-12 school year, we wanted to make sure you did not purchase any additional items for the rest of this school year.

For many years, we have had Dennis Uniform provide our plaid jumpers and skirts. We have been informed that the plaid fabric ordered over 10 years ago is now all gone. To replicate that fabric and purchase additional quantities would be cost prohibitive. We don't want parents to have to pay double for their uniform items. In fact, we are always looking for ways to keep the cost down.

Based on this information, we have decided to have Lands End be our exclusive provider of school uniforms, as we find their products to be well constructed, affordable, and easy to purchase. The girls in grades 1-4 will have a new mesh polo dress with either short or long sleeves. The girls in grades 5-12 will have a new plaid skirt, and will be able to choose from several options in skirt and blouse style. Lands End provides many cotton options, but at this time, they are not available in the plaid. For this reason, the plaid will be poly/rayon, with the hope that in the near future Lands End will offer a natural fiber option.

Next year, all girls will be able to wear their uniforms from this year if they still fit. You will be receiving further details after spring break, but if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call.

Thanks for your understanding as we make this change in uniform. After Spring Break, samples will be available for all to see. We sincerely feel that the girls will be really happy with our choices!

Best regards,

Laurie Baumann, Girls School Director

Laura Bordow, Lower School Director
