Uniform FAQs

Uniform Day is Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 9:30 a.m. – Noon. Representatives from Flynn O’Hara will be at SGHS on Uniform Day. Flynn O’Hara will have stock on hand for immediate purchase of all uniform items. Some used uniforms will also be available at this time.

School uniforms promote a single standard of dress. The school environment becomes less socially competitive and more focused on learning. Uniforms help build a sense of community and create an atmosphere of belonging.

Uniforms save on everyone’s budget and our students will tell you that by wearing a uniform your daughter will know exactly what she has to wear each day. No decisions, no worry, and most importantly, no fuss. In other words, your daughter can concentrate on more important things such as her academic success.

You are welcome to buy more or even less than what is stated. It depends on your budget and your washing cycle.

Yes. We have “tag days” at SGHS. If an occasion arises for a special theme, students may pay the specified donation to wear regular clothes that fit the theme of the day. This donation always goes to a charity or towards a school project. If students do not participate, they must wear all of the correct uniform.

Appropriate and presentable clothes are allowed. This does not include sweatpants or jeans with holes. Any clothing that distracts other students may not be worn. (Complete Tag Day information is provided in the Student/Parent Handbook.)

On occasion, permission will be given for students to wear shorts. These shorts must be Bermuda length. If students have a fitness class on a tag day, they are expected to dress out and wear appropriate gym clothes for class.

White oxford shirts may be purchased at any store, e.g., J.C. Penney’s or even LL Bean or Lands End catalog. Boys shirts may be used. Just make sure they are white oxford with a button-down collar and are fitted, i.e. shoulder seams fit on shoulders.

Shoes may be purchased at any store. Enclosed, solid black shoes with black soles only; heel or wedge may not be greater than one inch. No duck shoes, no moccasins, no tassels, no shoes above the ankle.

White turtlenecks, tights and socks may be purchased at any store. Forest Green socks and tights should purchased through Flynn O’Hara to ensure the correct color green.

Black leggings may be purchased at any store. Just be sure there are no company insignias, they fit close to the leg, and have no obvious seams. Kilts and logo items must be purchased from Flynn O’Hara or from our used uniform shop. Gator logo socks are available from our Gator Shop.
