Uniforms and Gear
Yes, for Upper School students. Upper School students (Grades 6-12) must wear authorized Lands’ End bottoms. (Last year, some allowance was given regarding required bottoms due to product availability and service concerns). Lower School students are encouraged, but not required, to wear authorized Lands’ End bottoms.
This year students are to wear the following bottoms:
- Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten are permitted to wear any bottoms of any color.
- Kindergarten thru Grade 5 are permitted to wear khaki, grey or black pants or skirts from Lands’ End or other vendors.
- Grades 6 thru 12 are permitted to wear only Lands’ End approved bottoms.
What about masks? Due to COVID-19 considerations, all students in Grades 2-12 are required to wear a mask that covers the mouth and nose. Students in K-1 are encouraged to wear a mask. Preschool and PreK students are not to wear masks under current state guidances.
Are there any regulations about the kind of mask my student can wear? Yes. Student masks are to be white, grey, khaki, black, burgundy, or light blue. Solid colors and patterns only. Students may also wear SSCA logo masks sold from authorized fanwear vendors. Patterned masks that follow the approved colors are permitted (for example, a black and white checkered mask, or a burgundy mask with light blue stars would be fine!). Masks with messages are not permitted unless specifically authorized by the Head of School.
Students who wear an unauthorized mask will be required to replace that mask with one that is authorized, or wear a disposable mask available at the Main Office.
What types of masks may students wear? Students are permitted to wear fabric or cloth masks, surgical masks, N95 masks, or masks with valves. Students MAY NOT wear gaiter masks or masks made with similar thin, stretchy fabric.
Will the school provide masks for students? SSCA will be providing each student in Grades 2-12 with two masks. These will be cloth masks in approved solid colors. These will be distributed on the first day of school. Students are to wear their own mask to school on the first day. Outside of these initial two masks provided by SSCA, families are expected to provide masks for their students. SSCA will have extra disposable masks available at the Main Office should the need arise.
