School Uniform Dress Code

Woodlynde School’s dress code policy nourishes in our students both a sense of belonging and a feeling of pride in their own appearance while creating an atmosphere conducive to learning. School dress code policies have been shown to increase academic performance. At Woodlynde School, our dress code policy reflects our commitment to serious learning and teaching. 
Students should wear Woodlynde polo shirts. Students are also permitted to wear Woodlynde spirit wear hoodies, sweatshirts, cardigans, pullovers or plain/undecorated hoodies, sweatshirts, pullovers, or cardigans in cooler weather. No decorated hoodies, sweatshirts, or pullovers other than Woodlynde spirit wear are allowed.

Students may wear khakis, khaki shorts, or cargo shorts in beige, tan, or navy. No denim or gym shorts are permitted. Students can also wear the plaid uniform skirt, under which leggings or stockings may be worn.

Students must wear closed-toe shoes or sneakers. No flip flops are allowed.

On Relaxed Dress Days, students may wear jeans, t-shirts, leggings, hoodies, and gym shorts. Bare midriffs, tank and camisole tops, and clothing with inappropriate slogans, images, or messaging (including violence, profanity, or alcohol/tobacco products) are not acceptable. Division heads reserve the right to determine whether dress is appropriate for school.
Please note that students in Grades 6-12 must wear and visibly display their Woodlynde School ID card at all times using a belt loop badge holder or lanyard worn around the neck. Additionally, Upper School students participating in athletic and fitness class are encouraged to have a change of clothing with them that includes a t-shirt, shorts and/or sweatpants, socks, and sneakers.
