Frequently Asked Questions
Why School Uniforms?
Many educators, administrators, parents and public minded citizens, are aware that some of our public school systems are in a dispirited and discouraged state. Violence, poor attendance, disruptive behavior and disheartening attitudes stand in the way of today's education. Sweeping changes are needed to return our educational standards to worldwide competitive levels. Our schools should once again become the safe havens and community centers for the education and the development of our students that they once were. Our children need the self-esteem, purpose, hope and security associated with growing up in a healthy learning environment. Implementation of a school uniform program can help meet these needs. The reasons, clear and diverse, are summarized below under Benefits of a School Uniform Program.
What are the differences between voluntary and mandatory school uniform policies?
Voluntary school uniform policies often originate at individual schools and/or with the PTA. These policies let parents choose whether and in what circumstances their children will wear school uniforms. There is no reprimand for students who do not wear uniforms. Voluntary policies often involve fewer legal issues, including the requirement to buy uniforms for students who cannot afford them.
Mandatory school uniform policies are adopted by the school district and usually require all students at participating schools to wear specific clothes and colors at all times. In most public schools, these policies have provisions for students (with parental consent) to opt out of the uniform requirements due to religious or health reasons. Mandatory polices without an “opt-out" could be vulnerable legal challenges. To view the government’s Manual on School Uniforms, go to

How are the school uniforms that Legacy School Apparel carries made differently from other brands?
Legacy School Apparel carries quality brand name uniforms that you know and trust, such as Classroom Uniforms, French Toast and Universal School Uniforms.
How many uniforms should I buy?
The answer really depends on whether you already have clothes that fit your school's uniform code. Before you go shopping, look in your closet—if you have what you need, don't purchase more now. When your child outgrows his or her school uniform, Legacy School Apparel will be here to assist you.
Do I have to buy all new clothes?
Maybe not! Look in your child’s closet before buying the uniforms. Your child may already have clothes acceptable for the uniform program. Buy only what you need.
What do I do with uniforms my child has outgrown?
About a year ago Legacy started a small “Uniform Closet” at the store to bless those who couldn’t afford to purchase school uniforms for whatever reason. As an added incentive to get parents to donate their gently used uniforms rather than throwing them out Legacy offers parents a 10-15% discount off of their next purchase of school uniforms. The school uniforms that are donated to Legacy are disseminated freely through out the community on a first come basis.
Most of the public schools that we work with also have “uniform closets” where parents can donate uniforms that their children have outgrown. Recycling uniforms not only keeps the uniform program strong; it teaches students the value of giving to others in need.
