We are proud to announce the selection of Lands’ End, the nation’s
leader in school uniforms, as our new uniform supplier. Lands’ End
offers our students a wider selection of uniform pieces and new styles,
while also giving parents the convenience of online ordering and discounted
pricing – with frequent 40% off sales.
“We believe Lands’ End provides the perfect combination of
high-quality merchandise, affordable pricing, and superior customer service
for our families,” said Head of School Tom Konjoyan.
The switch to Lands’ End also allows us to strengthen our uniform
policy, including a return to uniform-only pants, shorts, and skirts.
We will communicate new guidelines and policies soon and will give students
plenty of time to prepare for the 2018-2019 school year, when the new
uniform policy will go into effect.
To ease the financial burden of moving to a new uniform, we will “grandfather”
many of the items from this year’s uniform selections, including
our current red, gray, and black uniform polo shirts, into next year.
The move to Lands’ End comes on the heels of a difficult summer/fall
with our former uniform supplier, Parker/True Grits, and the recent closure
of its Montrose retail store. Our uniform committee met with numerous
leading uniform vendors, and we are confident that Lands’ End is
the right choice for our school community.
Our pledge is to make the shopping experience more effective and efficient
for our families. In addition to an online store, which will be available
soon, we will have a “pop up” in-person fitting event this
spring/summer to allow students to try on and sample the new styles. We
will also keep many sample styles and sizes at the school for student(s)
to try on as well.
We are very excited for this new partnership, and are confident you will
be pleased with Lands’ End. Please be on the lookout for more information
about the transition and the launch of our new online store.
