Other Important Dress Code Notes

Footwear
Footwear must be clean and in good condition. For safety reasons, students in grades 1-4 are not permitted to wear backless shoes. Platform or high-heeled shoes greater than two inches are prohibited for all students. In grades 5-8, flip-flops and tennis shoes are not allowed on dress uniform days.

Cold Weather Note
Students can wear any jacket, coat, and hat they want for outside wear, but these items may not be worn in the classroom. Only Spirit Wear fleece, GSL sweatshirts, or Lands’ End uniform sweaters may be worn inside the classroom. All items should be labeled with the student’s name.

Dress Uniform Days
GSL occasionally designates dress uniform days, requiring all students in grades 1-8 to wear the dress uniform as outlined above. Once students move to Middle School, we encourage them to take on a higher level of responsibility; therefore, students in grades 5-8 who do not wear the complete dress uniform on a designated day will be required to wear it the following school day.

Dress-Down Days
GSL occasionally designates dress-down days when students can be out of uniform. On these days, students may wear shorts or nice blue jeans. T-shirts must be free of objectionable words or images, and must not be a typical undershirt. Girls’ choice of clothing should not be too revealing or tight (i.e., no spaghetti straps, short shorts, short tops that reveal waistlines, or exercise shorts that are too tight).

Footwear for students should not be too casual (i.e., no slippers or flimsy beach-style flip-flops). Pajama pants and other sleepwear are not permitted.

Uniform Swap
The Uniform Swap is a service provided by the P.A. for GSL families with rising first through eighth graders. Each May, GSL families have the opportunity to exchange outgrown, gently worn, and clean uniform pieces for replacement pieces. First time uniforms and/or supplemental and additional uniform items may also be purchased during the Uniform Swap. All items offered at the Uniform Swap are previously owned and are typically offered at a 50 percent savings from the new item price. GSL no longer accepts Parker Uniforms for the Swap.
