Beginning in Kindergarten, girls enrolled at Lincoln School are expected to adhere to the following dress code.  The green and blue plaid kilt (or jumper) has long been a symbol of attendance at Lincoln School.  The jumper and kilt are worn with pride and signify our belief that uniform, simple and practical clothing worn by girls at Lincoln, removes from the morning routine the issue of materialism and choice.  The kilt worn with approved shirts, shoes, sweaters, and sweatshirts reinforces the Quaker tenets of simplicity and equity.  Avoiding extravagance and ostentation enhances everyone’s focus on the schoolwork at hand.

Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten

Students are encouraged to come to school in simple, sensible, comfortable clothing that can get dirty.

From Monday through Thursday, girls and boys are encouraged to come to school in simple, sensible and comfortable clothing. On Friday, the Lincoln School dress code kilt or jumper is required for girls, and boys wear khaki pants, a black/navy blue/white solid polo shirt or turtleneck, and brown shoes, something like loafers or docksiders, but not sneakers.

Students with three dress code violations will result in a meeting with the Dean of Students and possible after school detention.
