LINCOLN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL UNIFORM POLICY
Lincoln Elementary School students are required to dress in uniform. Students need to come to school in uniform every day except for designated days (Birthdays, Spirit Days, Fabulous Friday Presenters, Math Morning, etc.) when they can wear appropriate non-uniform clothes. We ask that parents help us to enforce proper uniform attire by making sure children have ready access to clean uniform clothing every day.
It is our belief that a uniform allows children to attend to their tasks here at school: to think, to create, to question, to learn, and to develop social relationships based on mutual trust. We wish to build community values while reducing the competitiveness that is often a part of fashion and advertising.
Please label your children’s clothing. This is very important.
All Elementary School students need to wear white, long- or short-sleeved shirts that have a collar. They can be polo-type, button-down, or turtleneck as long as they have a collar. All shirts must have the Lincoln School emblem on them. At the parents’ discretion, white, crew-collared PE/Fitness shirts with the Lincoln School logo may be worn for PE classes. PE/Fitness shirts are not required
Pants, Shorts, Skirts, Jumpers, and Overalls:
Students need to wear navy blue pants, skirts, skorts, or shorts in good condition (NO holes, tears, fraying seams, etc.).
Pants may not have embroidery, patches, decorations or patterns.
Plain navy blue fleece or any type of blue material (no embroidery, patches, decorations or patterns).
Blue sweatshirts can be worn over the uniform white shirt instead of a sweater.
All sweaters need to be plain navy blue with the Lincoln School emblem. They can be pullovers, V-necks, or cardigans.
Students need to wear comfortable shoes with heels no higher than 1 inch. We feel that any basic shoe appropriate for children’s play is best suited for Elementary School students. Students should wear athletic shoes on their PE days.
Clothing for Swimming:
All items must be labeled with the child’s name.
Swim materials include a swimsuit, a swim cap, goggles, rubber shower shoes, and a towel.
Certain clothing items are not allowed at Lincoln School:
Clothing with advertising is considered inappropriate. No advertising should appear on any of the children’s clothing: shirts, shorts, pants, etc.
Platform shoes and any shoe with heels higher than 1 inch.
Hats are not allowed in the classroom. Students are encouraged to wear protective head coverings outdoors as the need arises.
Clean, extra uniform items are kept in the Nurse’s office should children come to school out of uniform. In the event of a persistent problem with appropriate dress, a student’s parents will be called to collaborate on a solution. Uniforms are easily purchased once you arrive in Buenos Aires.
