Uniform Shopping Options: A variety of stores such as J.C. Penney’s, Sears and Target carry school uniform clothing. You are not limited to any one particular store or company.

 

Land’s End has a school uniform catalog available and carries an Our Savior Lutheran School logo that you can have embroidered on a polo shirt or sweatshirt for an additional fee of $5.50. In order to order this logo you will need to use the Logo Number #0283558K and you will want to mention our preferred school #9000-8066-4 as Land’s End will donate 3% of your net sales back to our school. Their web site is landsend.com/school and the phone number is 1-800-469-2222.

 

School Uniform Closet – Our school has a school uniform closet across the hall from the office. It is overflowing with clothing items of all sizes – some are new with tags! Items are nominally charged. You may also donate your child's clothing to the closet.

 

Should you have any questions pertaining to particular clothing items or styles, please ask prior to purchasing or wearing. Your help in maintaining a dress code standard is greatly appreciated and only works when everyone does their best to follow the guidelines.

 

Thank you!
