Rumor Has It... New Uniforms!
Beginning next school year, (2012-2013), Lands End will become the official uniform supplier for Parker. Effective July 1, 2012, uniforms may be ordered from the new company, and detailed information about uniform specifics will be communicated in future publications.
To ease this transition, all Mills and Option B uniforms already in circulation will be grandfathered for the 2012-2013 school year. Additionally, virtually no uniform changes will occur, including outerwear, until the 2013-2014 school year. Please note that skirts will no longer be allowed school-wide, beginning with the 2012-2013 school year.
Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, all clothing, including outerwear, must be purchased from Lands End.
