We’re excited for the start of the new school year in Allentown next Tuesday! Hopefully by now all families have obtained the school uniforms that are now required for all students in the Allentown School District. The two APN Head Start classes that will begin at Mosser Elementary will also be required to wear uniforms.
ASD’s website sites the following reasons for deciding on uniforms:
1. We want to establish a business-like climate in our schools that indicates we are serious about learning and about safety.
2. Uniforms result in economic savings for parents and guardians over the usual costs of dressing students for a school year.
3. Discussions with the staff and the results of community surveys indicate strong support for a uniform dress code
See below for a list of the stores that carry uniforms. Also, attached a pdf of the English and Spanish guidelines for ASD uniforms.
