Upper and Middle School Uniforms    
STUDENT ATTIRE AT THE BIRCH WATHEN LENOX SCHOOL

Certain elements of the School uniform must be purchased from our uniform company, Sue Mills. Uniforms may be ordered online: http://www.millswear.com. There are dates in the spring when uniforms may be purchased in the BWL auditorium.

This year’s uniform sale dates are:
Wednesday, June 7th from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for the regular uniform
Monday June 5th and Tuesday June 6th from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for the gym uniform

Gym uniforms are required in Middle School, and are sold through our school supply store, the BiWize. (No gym uniforms are required in grades 9 through 12.) To view gym uniform requirements and download BiWize order forms, click on the Community tab on the home page: http://www.bwl.org

Please note that any student who has excessive uniform infractions will have his or her transcript noted, meaning that other schools and colleges may be made aware of school policy infractions. The division offices will maintain uniforms, and students appearing at school without a uniform will be required to change into one.
Fridays will be Dress Down Days for the Middle and Upper School divisions.
