Dress Code/Uniform

Thanks to the generosity of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Assistance League, Jenny Lind students receive, as a supplement to their wardrobe, three pair of pants and three shirts, and one sweatshirt per year.


Khaki/tan bottoms and navy/dark blue tops. During warm weather months, the building is air conditioned and can become quite cool.  We suggest your child keep a dark blue sweater/sweatshirt (no hoods, graphics or logos) with him/her at school.

1.       Shoes: Students are active during recess and physical education.  Tennis shoes are the best choice to wear to school.  Flip flops and other loose fitting sandals are not allowed.  They inhibit your child’s ability to participate and are not allowed in the gym.  On gym days, your child should be wearing white-soled tennis shoes.  No heelies/wheelies.

2.      Hats and head wear are allowed for medical and religious reasons only.

Jenny Lind students are expected to wear the school uniform every day.  The only exception to this policy is on School Picture Day and “Free to Be Me” days.  It is our expectation that all uniforms worn to school will be clean and neat. Students must remain in uniform during the school day and on field trips.  School spirit shirts are permitted every day and count towards the school uniform.


Procedure and Consequence for students who come to school without wearing the school uniform:

Student will need to change into a loaner school uniform for the day.  Repeated incidents will result in a parent conference/problem solving meeting with administration.


 “Free to Be Me” Days are non-uniform days.  Students may choose to dress as they wish and are not required to wear their school uniform. All students are expected to wear school-appropriate clothing.  No violent or offensive graphics will be allowed.  School spirit shirts are permitted every day and count towards the school uniform.
