Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Will there be any special days or events when students will be able to wear spirit wear or clothes other than the uniform?
A. Absolutely. We will continue to allow athletes to wear jerseys or approved team wear on approved game days, etc. There will also be days selected to recognize exemplary performance in which spirit wear or dress down is part of the recognition. The headmaster will work with students to develop the plan regarding the schedule of dress down events for the school year.
Q. Do khaki bottoms or jumpers have to be purchased from Lands' End or Buckhead Uniforms?
A. Khaki bottoms may be purchased from the store of your choice; however, they must be the dark khaki, not the stone color. NOTE: Both Lands' End and Buckhead Uniforms offer affordable quality options plus free shipping and logo specials.
Q. May I purchase a plain polo or oxford shirt and have the new Gatewood logo embroidered on it?
A. Due to differences in color shades, only a white shirt may be purchased elsewhere for parents to have
embroidery done. There are 3 local and approved embroiderers who will access to the official Gatewood uniform logo. Below is the contact information:

Q. May parents purchase logo uniform shirts from Lands' End or Buckhead Uniforms to wear?
A. No. The official uniform logo will only be worn by Gatewood students, faculty and staff. This will allow us to identify Gatewood students and faculty. Gatewood parents may continue to purchase spirit wear items through the school.
Q. What about belts, shoes and coats/jackets?
A. Nothing will change regarding these items. All students must wear a belt with pants or shorts that have belt loops. Coats and jackets do not have to have a Gatewood logo. Shoe requirements will not change. Please refer to the Student/Parent Handbook for a complete description of these items.
Q. Does a student have to wear a logo uniform shirt under a logo sweater or vest?
A. Yes. To ensure comfort and compliance, if a sweater, vest or jacket is removed, a logo shirt must be worn underneath.
Q. Are privacy shorts required under skirts for lower school students?
A. Yes. Because lower school students are so active on the playground, the appropriate shorts are required under skirts. These may be any color and can be purchased at Target, Lands' End and many other stores.
Q. What if I don't have a credit card or access to the internet for online purchases?
A. Please contact the school for assistance.
Q. Will there be a time during the year that I can swap logo uniform items for different sizes?
A. Yes, there will be 2-3 times throughout the year (before school, fall, spring) that the school will hold a uniform swap where parents may "swap" uniform clothes.
