The Kildonan School believes that neat attire encourages respect for learning and a concern for one's surroundings. Our dress code allows for flexibility and individual expression while directing focus toward academic pursuits rather than outward appearance.
Mondays and Fridays: Formal Class Dress
Tuesdays and Wednesdays: Relaxed Class Dress
Thursdays: Dress Down
All clothing worn above the waist requires a Kildonan crest. Kildonan adopts a dress code from the Lands' End School Uniform catalog.
Students must wear a Lands' End school polo shirt (available in many solid colors) with the Kildonan Crest embroidered on the front. If a student chooses to wear a shirt under the polo, it should not be visible unless it is a white undershirt that shows only at the collar. Under NO circumstances should a long-sleeve shirt be worn under a short-sleeve polo shirt.
Several times throughout the school year, the Kildonan Parents Association (KPA) will hold a clothing swap. This gives Kildonan families the opportunity to trade in their child's Kildonan garments that are in good condition, and swap them for other clothing items. These items include Kildonan crested clothing as well as winter/ski items. If you do not have an item to trade in, you may purchase an item of clothing from the swap.
