A Few Clarifications on the Dress Code:

Pants: Khaki or Navy shorts, skirts, slacks (see the uniform options on our website for styles).   The biggest clarification here is on the pants – the permitted style is slacks.  This means no corduroy pants, cargo pants, skinny jeans, leggings, joggers or any other style that is not a "slacks" type style.  They are intended to look like professional dress and help promote an environment of higher education, preparing them to enter a professional world. 

Many stores sell “uniform clothing” that is not in the Pinecrest dress code.  We are happy to permit parents to buy uniform shorts, skirts and slacks at businesses other than our vendor if that works better for cost and/or convenience for your family, however we ask that you are careful to purchase items that are the same style as the items offered through our vendor.

The shorts and slacks on our website are a loose fitting style and could easily be identified as “dress pants”.  Several items are now on display near the front office.  If you would like to stop by and take a look we are happy to answer questions so that students are not questioned about their dress during the school day.

Please consider purchasing pants through our vendor – they are high quality and are still cost effective. If you choose to purchase clothing from other retailers, here are a few things to look for:

· “Flat Front Pants” – generally means this is an item that is going to work.
· “Classic Fit” – generally means this is an item that is going to work. Please check the overall style. “Skinny” styled pants or pants with pockets sewn on the outside of the pant are not acceptable.

Shirt: All students need to have a monogrammed polo shirt with the Pinecrest logo.  Polos must be solid orange, white, navy blue or grey monogrammed (see the uniform options on our website for styles).  Families are welcome to use long sleeved shirts under uniform shirts for warmth if needed (however long sleeved uniform shirts are available on our website).  If you choose to use long sleeved shirts under a short sleeved uniform shirt, they are required to be Pinecrest colors – white, orange, blue or grey.

Jumpers: If your child would like to wear a jumper (they are available on our website), it must have a Pinecrest logo – as it will cover up a uniform shirt.  Jumpers need to be worn with a collared shirt (uniform style – either polo or oxford shirt) underneath.  These do not need to be monogrammed since they will be covered by the jumper and the jumper will have the logo.  Shirts under jumpers should be a Pinecrest color.

P.E. Wear: The main issue we see with athletic wear are shorts that are not a solid color.  Please be aware of stripes down the side of shorts or other markings that would not adhere to the dress code.  If your child has PE, athletic shorts or pants are allowed during the entire school day only on the day they have the class.

Pioneers T-Shirts are optional.  If your student prefers a regular uniform shirt, they are welcome to wear those to P.E.  The Pioneers T-Shirts are just an additional option.
