Information for New Parents

Woodlynde School recognizes that new parents and families may have many questions when starting at Woodlynde. To make this transition as easy as possible for both student and parent, we have put together a handbook for new families, including information on our dress code, transportation, lunch program, L.E.A.D. Student Life Program, Parent Community Association, and much more.

Woodlynde Dress Code

Woodlynde School's dress code policy reinforces in our students a pride in their own appearance, improves their sense of belonging and tolerance among their peers, sets a tone for the atmosphere of learning at Woodlynde, and makes a statement for our school. School dress code policies and uniforms have been shown to increase academic performance, and at Woodlynde, our dress code connotes our commitment to serious learning and teaching.
