Who: All Students in Kindergarten to Fifth Grade
Twin Lakes has adopted a standardized dress code for all students beginning with the 2011-2012 school year. Based on survey results showing 85% of parents in favor of uniforms, the Shared Decision Making Committee voted unanimously to approve the dress code.
What: Navy, White and Red tops with Navy or Khaki bottoms
shirts, blouses, shirts (long or short sleeves),
Shorts, pants, skirts, jumpers, skorts, capris
Belts suggested for belt loops
Bottoms should fit properly and not sag below the waist
Jeans (blue) are permitted; sweatpants (navy blue or black) are permitted in cold weather
There is no obligation to purchase any items. Clothing meeting the standardized dress code requirements can come from your closet, garage sales, or your favorite store or catalog. Target, J.C. Penney, Wal-Mart, Old Navy, Gap, and Lands End are just a few of the stores or catalogs that have reasonably priced items that fit the dress code. Logo shirts are not required, but are encouraged to show our school spirit and identity.
The standardized dress code will be enforced each day. There will be a two week grace period for new students. Early Release days will be “non uniform” days to allow students a chance to wear their favorite clothing. Shared Decision will also plan special days during the school year such as college day, sports day etc.

Many parents have reported reduced clothing expenses, fewer arguments with students over clothing, less competition with peers for name brand clothing, improved academic performance, improved student appearance, improved student behavior, and improved school spirit after the institution of uniforms or dress codes. All students are expected to participate, however if a student cannot participate due to religious or other parental reasons, there will be one opportunity at the beginning of the school year or within two weeks of entry to TLAE for parents to apply to “opt-out”.
