School Uniform Guidelines 2011-12
Lindo Park has implemented a school uniform policy to foster a safe and efficient learning environment and to
encourage continued student success. Tuesday, September 6, 2011 is the first day of school and students are
expected to wear their uniforms. This policy is mandatory. However, parents may choose not to have their
children comply with the uniform policy and will have an opportunity to opt out.
The school uniforms include:
 Pants, “skorts”, skirts, Bermuda-length shorts, cargo pants, and solid-colored dresses or jumpers in navy,
black, or khaki (tan).
 Tops in purple, white, navy blue, grey or light blue; must have collars and sleeves.
 Lindo Park Logo t-shirts and sweatshirts.
 Jackets, sweaters, and sweatshirts must be in one of the uniform colors and without logos or designs (except
Lindo Park logo).
Uniform clothing is generic and available at a wide variety of affordable stores. Brand-name clothing and exact
colors are NOT required. The “shoe policy” is that students must wear socks and closed-toe, full-heel shoes,
suitable for P.E. activities. Fridays will be designated logo shirt (or solid T) and jeans day. All students are
required to follow our dress code when not wearing uniforms and on non-uniform days. (See below.)
We believe that a mandatory uniform policy is in the best interest of our students and our school. We would
emphasize that although this is a mandatory program, students shall not be penalized academically, otherwise
discriminated against, or denied attendance to school if their parent or guardian exempts them from the uniform

not appropriate for school.
