School Uniforms

There was a time when kids could go to school in a Spider-Man mask if they really wanted. Sadly, those days are now gone. Thanks for that, crazy Gen-X pranksters. Anyway, if your kid has to wear respectable clothes, at least these won't bankrupt you.

Do your kids have to wear uniforms? Has it always been that way or something they had to get used to?

I'm just hanging out, really.

In small town Kansas, my children are still able to wear what they want. There are more rules now such as no tank tops or flip flops. However, they usually wear slacks and a polo anyways.

there is a *uniform dress code* - meaning there are options, not a strict uniform.
So pants/shorts/skirt option - Black/navy/khaki
Shirts- White or Blue (any shade) - Must have collar (can be polo, button up, turtleneck)

Something that they had to get used to, but now they realize how easy it is to
1) be able to tell their school clothes from their *play* clothes
2) be able to *pick an outfit*
3)fold & sort their laundry - they have waaay fewer clothing items than many of their peers...

My kid starts preschool in two weeks, and now we have uniforms. Can't say I love them, but I understand them.

My son is starting middle school and uniforms are required. The school has their own branded polos that are required. It's going to cost about $200+ to outfit him for 1 week of school. But, you do what ya gotta do to get him into a good school.
