Dress Code

  • Students are required to wear the designated uniform for Lower School. Students may choose from khaki or navy uniform line bottoms paired with white, navy or light blue top with the Maclay School crest. (An item labeled uniform line maintains traditional colors, cuts, and lengths considered appropriate for many school dress codes.)

    Students must wear sneakers that have either laces or Velcro. Footwear must have good support and non-marking soles. Footwear such as hiking boots, wrestling shoes, heeled-boots, flip-flops, or sandals of any type is unacceptable. Safety and dress code are our primary concerns.

    Please label all clothes or other personal items with the child’s name.
