School Uniform Information


Based on information that student uniforms help to create a positive learning climate, contribute to safe schools and encourage higher standards of excellence for students in the areas of achievement and behavior, and at the request of many parents, classified staff, teachers, and administration, the Board of Education of the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District has approved MANDATORY uniforms for all students in kindergarten through eighth grade.


Our district wide school uniform will consist of dark navy blue bottoms and plain white tops.


Lampton Uniform Attire


  • White short or long sleeved shirts with collars - no athletic style T-shirts

  • Lampton shirts in white or school color

  • Dark navy blue skirts, skorts, jumpers, pants or shorts. (Denim jeans are discouraged as they easily fade and will create an undue financial burden to parents for replacement.)

  • Shoes that allow for participation in physical education (ie. tennis shoes)

  • Students may continue to wear jackets or sweaters that they have already been using for cold and/or wet weather as long as they meet the dress code. (When you replace them, please do so with navy blue or white sweaters or jackets.)


Resources will be available to assist economically disadvantaged students. Attached is a partial list of local school uniform suppliers. Inclusion on this list does not constitute endorsement by the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District. The district assumes no liability or responsibility for any supplier or its products or services, but is permitting this information to be disseminated because of the possible interest of students and parents.


If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school. Thank you for you attention to this important issue.


Sincerely,



Cindy Rayburn

Principal

Lampton Elementary School
