School and gym uniforms are required for all students. All Pre-School & Pre-K students wear the SCS gym uniform each day. Beginning in Kindergarten, students wear the school uniform. All uniforms may be ordered on “Uniform Day” held in the Spring at school or at any time during the school year directly with the uniform suppliers. There are also opportunities to purchase used uniforms throughout the school year. If you miss Uniform Day, then you will need to go to JB Pride for the school uniform and order the gym uniform by phone through Scholastic Sportswear. All Pre-School, Pre-K and Kindergarten students must wear sneakers to school.
