Notes for Upperclassmen (expand with arrow)

Upperclassmen hold the responsibility as Standard Bearers for younger grades. Please ensure that your uniform meets the high bar that has been set.

Note: Upper School students are allowed to wear their uniforms from earlier years if they are in good shape, though we ask that you do not mix and match upper and lower uniforms.

Additional Notes (expand with arrow)

Shoes must be solid color and in good condition. Embellishments like neon stripes or glitter are not allowed. PE shoes must be nonskid soles.

Due to uncertain times, Lands End is experiencing technical difficulties and delays with monograms. Please contact Monogram on the Mound if you have any embroidery needs.

In our appearance we show our opinions about ourselves, show respect for what we are doing, and show respect for those with whom we spend our time. We dress up when we take something or someone seriously, and through our appearance we communicate that respect. Clothes can distract and prevent others from devoting their energy and attention to their schoolwork. Our goal is to minimize such distractions and to cultivate an atmosphere of studiousness and decorum. Founders students hold a healthy respect for school, for teachers, for fellow students, and for ourselves.

  • All students are required to be in their proper uniform whenever they are on campus before, during, and after the normal school day. When the uniform is worn, even off campus, it should be worn with pride (shirt tucked in, tie on, and shoes laced).

  • If a student’s attire or grooming is not proper, a student may be removed from class until the problem is fixed. A student who is repeatedly out of uniform will be disciplined. We appreciate your support in this manner.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION: Middle and Upper

  • Black tees and shorts from previous year permitted for one year only. We are moving to gray shirts and blue shorts.

  • gray t-shirt with no logos or designs

  • solid navy basketball shorts to the knee

No additional colors, stripes, words, or designs on any PE clothing
