School Uniform Policy

As a charter school, LMCJ has a uniform policy that we expect scholars to adhere to daily. Our uniform suppliers are Hermans Discount, Inc. (located on Greenmount Avenue) or Flynn O’Hara (located online and in Parkville, MD).  Shirts, pants, and skirts are specific to our school and should be purchased through approved uniform vendors only.


 

Basic Uniform Attire

Scholars must be in uniform daily which consists of:

  • Tops: A white or grey polo shirt with our school logo for 5th-7th graders. 8th graders have the added option of a royal blue polo shirt with our school logo. White t-shirts with our school logo are also acceptable. 
  • Bottoms: A charcoal grey uniform skirt or uniform pants.
  • Socks and Shoes: Any color socks and any color sneakers, boots, and flats are permissible.

Scholars are not allowed to wear heels or open-toed shoes due to safety reasons. 

 


Outerwear

We understand the temperature varies throughout the seasons and inside classrooms. While coats are not permitted to be worn throughout the day, simple outerwear such as those listed below are allowed:

  • A royal blue fleece jacket with our school logo 
  • Any LMCJ-issued hoodie

Note: 

  • No clothing should have offensive/suggestive language. 
  • Large hoop earrings, described as earrings which fit more than 2 fingers through, will be asked to be removed immediately. 
  • Out of uniform can mean: shoes with exposure of the foot at any area, jeans shorts, or shirts without LMCJS logos. 
  • Infractions will be given to anyone who is found to be out of uniform and they will be given “loaner” uniform items as a substitute. At no time will scholars be allowed to call home to receive a replacement.
  • If your scholar needs to borrow a school “loaner” fleece jacket, they will be asked to sign it out and return it to the front office at the end of the school day.  If a scholar does not return the fleece within 3 days of borrowing or it is not found on campus within the same time period, the parent will receive a bill from the school for $25- the value of the fleece. There will be a charge of $15 for any other item (skirt, shirt or shoes) that is not returned.

All scholars must report to school in full uniform as described above.

Scholars should not expect to report to school out of uniform with a change of clothes. Scholars are also not allowed to change clothes during dismissal-they must leave the building in full uniform. Scholars will be reminded of the uniform requirements as they walk inside the building, during crew and throughout the school day.

Any scholars reporting to school not in uniform will be subject to the following:
