Uniform and Dress Code
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.
